Welcome Back: Part Two

I hope everyone had a great holiday. We have been enjoying having my Mom visit.

These Boots Were Made For Walking

This was her first Swissmas ( Swiss Christmas ). Here they like to celebrate on Christmas Eve so we made a cheese fondue dinner for everyone.

Ian and Viva Pinata Game

On Christmas we had the usual U.S. morning festivities of gathering under the tree to see what Santa brought. Ian really enjoyed the ripping of the paper more this year. It was hard work to keep him from ripping our gifts open..haha. Santy brought him a Kitchen and Lego Train set. From his grandparents a boy doll, build your own puppet, sweater, wood train toy, and stuffed lamb. He also got a nice cough…so we are working on getting that gone.


Opening Gifts

Stanta also treated me well; blessed me with a Macro 100mm f 2.8 Canon lens. I had to pop that sucker right on the camera to finish our Christmas pictures and let me tell you what..the macro is just AMAZING! My parents also got us a mini USB video camera, HD quality. I will have to get our video up soon. Thank you all for everything you have done for our family and lets not forget the reason for the Season :).

Great news about twins on the way!!!Since I am a twin , I always wanted my daughters to have twins.. but no luck!!I wish I lived near you to help with the twins when they are born..I am a retired baby nurse and loved my babies in the nursery..the ultrasound pictures and video are is so amazing how 3d images are so clear..are you going to find out the sex of the babies before delivery?/

I love your blog and will be back to visit often if I may?
