Catch up!

I of course have to play catch up again!! I'm super bad at this writing all the time...the computer is Ivan's domain not mine!! But I'll still do my best to keep it up!! So a few weeks ago now my mom and sister came to visit us all the way over here in Germany!! They also had two fellow travlers...our cats Monster and Chevy...lets just say that they are not good travlers...sorry sis and mom...we will be forever gratefull to you guys for bringing us two more members of our family!! They have really helped me adjust to my surrondings a lot more than I would have ever thought they would...yet they still don't kill the spiders on my command yet...we'll get there I'm sure...of course I'm talking about my cats!! 

Now back to the human family!! We had such a great time while they were here it was a lot of just the Wilson girls doing crazy things...or maybe just me being a crazy driver and doing crazy things...they just lauged with me of course!! I don't think I've ever almost peed my pants so many times in just 10 days!! It was excatly what I needed since moving half way across the world to a place where no one understands what I'm saying...As anyone who knows me can imagine i'm sure they got sick of me talking their ears off beacuse I had to catch up on all my well talking!! 

Anyways...We went to Trier, Germany 3 times and loved it every single time!! I think that would be voted most favorite place and not just because it's the oldest city in Germany...they had the best shops, food, entertainment, and national monuments!!! We also traveled to Luxembourg...where they speak French...we brought along our German phrase book...but needless to say it didn't do us much good!! However we made the best of it and went to see a Great Castle!! We also traveled down to Austria so we could see where they filmed The Sound of Music...lets just say that Ivan was way sick of us singing...the hills are alive....We also got to see this cool castle that looked out over the city of Salzburg!!! The first night we stayed in a great hotel that cost us an arm and a leg but it was worth it!! Especially for breakfast the next morning which I think we can all conclude was the best breakfast of the trip!! We also visited Bitburg, Germany which was 85% destroyed in WWII. So that was some great history...this is where most of the shopping took was a great time and I had a blast exploring with My mom and my sister. 

While we (the pregos) were realxing at home my mom was out planting me flowers and caluking my bathrooms down stairs!!! Once again I'm indebted to her...because these are things I would never have done...not just because I'm prego and can't inhale the fumes but because they were both areas that were spider infested and she cleaned them up for me and made our house a home!! She's always done that for us no matter where we live she will come by for a visit and by the time she has left she's done half of our to do list and made the house look a billion times better and make us feel like we could actually live here!! So THANKS X A BILLION MOM!!!

Ok so hopefully that's all the catch I said I'll try and be better about this blogging...Some day I'll even get Ivan to put the pictures on the computer so that I can showcase the BELLY!!

We had a great time! I didn't want to come home. The cats weren't that bad on the airplane, it was the car ride to your house that was bad...poop on my suitcase and coat :)
