Last night

We had planned on going to the movies and walking around Bridgestreet (outdoor shopping center) to look at their Christmas lights last week Friday. Nadia got sick on Thanksgiving though, so we had to change our plans. 
Yesterday was a cold, blustery day, but we decided to bundle up and go anyway. 
There were lots of people around before the movie started, but the place felt pretty deserted afterward. 
Eigentlich wollten wir letzte Woche Freitag ins Kino gehen, und durch Bridgestreet (ein Einkaugszentrum) schlendern um die Weihnachtsbeleuchtung anzuschauen. Leider wurde Nadia an Thanksgiving krank und so mussten wir unsere Plaene aendern.
Gestern war es kalt und winding, aber wir beschlossen trotzdem zu gehen.
Vor dem Film war ziemlich viel in Bridgestreet los, nachher war alles jedoch fast wie ausgestorben.
 Pretty tree! The girls kept saying we should "pull a Griswold" and put it in our living room. ;-)
Der Baum sah so schoen aus! Die Maedels meinten wir sollten es wie Clark Griswold machen, und ihn in unser Wohnzimmer stellen. ;-)
 You can see how windy it was, those poor swags were swaying pretty badly.
Hier koennt ihr gut sehen wie windig es war.
A moving snowflake display in this area caught our eye. Very pretty. And no, we didn't eat at Connors.
Hier gab es "tanzende" Schneeflocken zu sehen, sah sehr schoen aus. Bei Connors gegessen haben wir aber nicht...
It was a good family night and fun was had by all. :-)
Es war ein schoener Familienabend und es hat allen gefallen. :-
