Well we are back home, in our own home, our own bed! Yes we are happy about that!  We will miss Europe, and the life we had there, but its good to be back among family and friends here at home!

Hmm ... let's see what is left to say really... I think we were still in Austria at my last post, we were heading out the next day for Vienna and back to Amsterdam.

We didn't spend too much time in Vienna, the wind had picked up, and it was bitterly cold, for the lack of winter clothing we were wearing.  We checked out one of the Christmas street markets they had set up, but didn't see anything worth purchasing really, other then a nice silver ring for Aaron.  He wanted this, but it was out of my budget!

We left Vienna at around 7am, which meant a 4am wake up call, so we headed back to the hotel early, had some dinner and crashed into a semi comfortable bed.

The Thursday we got back into Amsterdam was Thanksgiving Day here in the States, so I went out and bought some nice steaks, potatoes and veggies, and that is what we had for dinner.  :) A not-so typical Thanksgiving dinner! :)

We didn't do much on our last weekend in Amsterdam, it was cold and threatening to snow, so we finished the packing and cleaned up the apartment, putting things back to rights.

We left Amsterdam Monday morning, and it was a loooong flight back home.  But isn't that they way?  When you are looking forward to something with anticipation, it takes forever to come!

One last shot of the Netherlands as we leave ...
