What’s happened since then

with 4 comments

So, what has happened since err, umm..  November?  First place to look is at my photos folder, which, at the moment is in a terrible disarray. Sigh..

[… Scanning thumbnails … ] Right, Christmas, let’s start there.  The holidays were fun, despite this being the second year that we stay in Europe for Christmas.  It’s the hardest time of year to be expats, away from family and friends we love and miss.   But hey, we had some crazy snow.

Me and Little A in the backyard.

Big D and Little A, my darlings: 

At one point D tried to use electrical wire to pull her “sled” but this was slightly disastrous.  We just pushed/pulled instead. Okay, fine, D pushed, I took pictures…

This is the first year that we bought a Christmas tree (and a mini tree and a wreath and ornaments and lights).

Little A visited Santa, at our gym, but sadly, there was no cardboard tree.

Christmas morning, with new boots from Grandma, and new toys.

It gave our spirits a boost when D’s parents came just after Christmas.  They caught a cold on the plane (of course), and it made it’s way around to all of us during the following week, yuck!

So we stayed in… took naps, visited, cooked.   Little A loved the attention, and the time with two of her important people.  She was saying Grand-maman, though it sounded more like “Grah-MAMA!”

This photo says it all:
