April 5th means birthdays at our house....Hannes was 10, Grandma was 63 and Uncle Ed was 60. Ed was the only one who wasn't present for the celebrations this time. Mom was given a beautiful teapot by dad and Ralph and after politely saying oh, how lovely, they admitted sheepishly that they had recuperated it from our garbage dump. Stinkers! If only it had been pretty! It is numbered and signed though so now mom is on a mission to discover that the thing is worth thousands and thereby have the last laugh! Mom did easter eggs with the boys just before bed. We had a fun day and hope to slip over to France tomorrow. We have semi sick kids so will see how they are in the morning. Some nice folks from Bern (hi Heidi and MH!) have said they would take the kids for the day........hoo boy..no kids for a whole day!

Happy Birthday Hannes and Grandma!!
Joshua & I had fun making eggs too - he was so enamored with them that they didn't last long... dropping, cracking... look of surprise and sadness on his little face...
He must be a kindred spirit of yours Heidi, as his favourite colour is orange and his favourite egg was the first one he made - the orange one.

As serious Beaver fans, we couldn't help but notice your dad's jacket! =)
