You try it. Da floor.” 07.12.2012

Bryan gehurt me. 11.12.2012  This one is interesting because she used an English verb, but conjugated it with a German past tense conjugation.  Hurt :: gehurt.  A boy at school hit her and she was telling me on the way home from school.

Bert and Hernie on T. 12.12.2012 (Bert and Ernie are on TV.)

LOML and I get “Guck mal”ed all the time at home.  It comes out sounding more like “Kukamall”, but that’s ok because it’s more like the correct pronunciation, anyway.

I learned the command style in my German class last night (11.12.2012).  This is the one thing I really wanted to be able to know how to do so I could give simple commands to Big Ive while we’re in Arizona for the next 8 weeks.  Hopefully with the extra hands of my mom, dad and sister (and sometimes my brothers if they’re at the house) I’ll be able to work through some RosettaStone to keep going on German learning.  I don’t want to forget it all before I get back and take the next Intensivkurs Moduls.

The teacher told me that after she completed a puzzle at school she said, “Gute gemacht!” 12.12.2012

Christmas Cookie Count 2012

11 dozen + 1 Russian Teacakes (a.k.a. Mexican Wedding Cakes) 01.12.2012

up next, rolled sugar cookies.  I have never made this without my mother present.  We’ll see how it all turns out.  [[EDIT 02.12.2012: Did not get these cookies made yesterday.  It’s on the list today before my concert tonight.]]

~9 dozen Snickerdoodles 02.12.2012

~7 dozen rolled sugar cookies 02.12.2012  I’m happy to report these turned out really well, even without my mom here to make them.  AND, the Germans really loved them because they weren’t so sweet.  They are not big on highly sugary sweets.  There is a small ball of dough left to roll out, yet.
