Xmas markets and not so friendly Santa

We went to the Ku'damm this morning. Went into KaDeWe in the hope of finding a store Santa for a photo with the kids...not easy to do here (not like at home where there is a Santa in every shopping centre).


Well the KaDeWe Santa gets 2/10 for his performance. If he could actually smile that would have gotten him a few extra points, also if he actually said hello to the children that would have got him a few extra points too. Instead, he sat like a statue, and grumbled if anyone sat too close to him...I think the kids were a bit scared of him actually.....deep sigh! Cameron's eyes were closed, but even I was too frightened to take one more photo incase I was told off by Santa! So, I am on the hunt for a friendly Santa...if anyone has seen one in Berlin, please let me know where...thanks!

On the plus size, the decorated trees in KaDeWe were lovely.

The markets are always fun to walk around. Better to go early in the day, when the crowds are not so big, especially with the kids.
Here is a picture for Dad, of the chestnuts roasting....lecker, lecker, lecker!

The German traditional Lebkuchen (gingerbread)..Michelle sent one to her Mum in South Africa....it cost her 16 euros in postage, about 3 times the price of the actual Lebkuchen! I hope she enjoys it!!!!

Shock, Cameron says "take a photo of me Mum", and for once he is not pulling a face at the camera!!
