Can this Christmas season last any longer?

It's been the ~ longest ~ Christmas ~ ever. And boy has it been fun! So if you'll indulge me for just a moment, Merry Christmas! Again!

Here, let my friends sing you a virtual carol, or two, to get you in the mood.

It's almost a month to the day that Sarah and I took off for Germany. She was going on a photography mission, and C and I were along for the ride. A small selection of her brilliant photographs are posted on her Tumblr site. Since I'm late to the party, scroll back through her history to catch the Germany shots.

Germany was covered in snow, making its fantastic castles, churches, and timber-frame buildings look even more dramatic.

As I'm sure you know, there's a Christmas market in every town... and we can confirm that the following are simply fantastic:
-Dresden (at least a million festivals in this old city!)
-Esslinger?... there was much confusion as to where we were actually going and how you spelled it, but we were definitely somewhere.
-and Frankfurt!

I mentioned before we left that Germany was suffering from a major cold spell. As a result, we spent our time cozied up to plenty of burning logs in all shapes and sizes.

The cold was made even colder by the gray skies. GRAY skies. The cold and gray was enough to make a person go mad if it weren't for the random moments of beauty. Who knew a Ferris wheel would look so good in gray? And look at how well these doors wear their gray walls? Or wait, are the walls sporting gray doors? Like the gray? Want more? Whoa, how about a shot from Zugspitze, the highest point in Germany?

Somewhere along the way, Calder hijacked the camera. He caught Sarah and I on a serious shopping mission::Followed by a goofy moment over a bowl of mac and cheese.

Then I stole the camera back, and captured the cutest photo of my exhausted traveling buddies... See that spot in the middle? That was mine, and when we crashed, we crashed hard.
