On Friday, Paige and I went to the annual Christkindlmarket. Very cold, but still fun to see all the different crafts. I ended up buying a pewter ornament that has Merry Christmas written in German. You know…to further embrace my heritage. Speaking of which, I recently found out that my ancestor, Conrad, who came over to the Americas from Germany, fought in the Revolutionary War as a Hessian soldier. In case you don’t know, that means he was a mercenary soldier hired to fight against the rebel Americans. It kinda makes me like him more. We’re all about the money, my family and I.
