Friday night fun night

When Heidi leaves, things change a little bit. The meal turns into a truckers meal, e.g. a disaster. Last Friday night we introduced Alinya to this custom and she didn't quite know what to think. There will be more opportunities........

Hair bow removal expert

Princess for an afternoon

Today I was kidding around with the kids and put this crown in my hair for fun. It has a comb on it so it will stay in your hair. It was given to me by some Oregon friends for Alinya. Well, I forgot I had it on and went to piano lessons, then the store, then to drop off some homework at a sick friend's house. So....I didn't have to kiss a frog, try on an uncomfortable shoe or be home by midnight or my coach would turn into a pumpkin but it was sure fun to have been royalty for the afternoon. Now I know those people weren't staring, pointing and laughing because I had my skirt tucked in my was the crown! Whew!

Alinya turns 1

Ok, so I have been very melancholy about my baby turning one. I have thought several times about doing this last year over again and taking even more time to study her tiny hands, watch her sleep and soaking in every one of her expressions. She is just simply Alinya and we love her so much. Here are a few shots of her day.

Giswil ski week

Our winter ski week is over and it was a fun one again. Hannes had just had a week's ski camp with school so he was a hard act to follow for a few days. We had a little chalet in the mtns (no, the 70's decor is not at our house, thx very much) tons of snow and a few nice quiet evenings lazing around with books (and maybe a few cartoons). Dani and MH joined us the last night and woke up looking a little worse for wear. We didn't give them much of a chance to pretty up before the shot. At least we can say this was the before and not the after pose. We'll have to do lots of nice things in return for posting this one!
