a day in the sun









The kids begged and pleaded to get up into the snow today so we finally set off in the afternoon when the fog had lifted in the mountains. It was well worth it so thanks kids for getting us out of the house!! It turned out to be a beautiful clear day even if it was VERY cold still. Alinya got to try out her new snow suit and she was really happy at the few runs we took down the hill on the old fashioned wooden sled. Liam got on his skiis again and seemed to enjoy himself on the bunny hill. Hannes and Dylan went up the hill on their own for the very first time and it worked out great. It's nice to be able to let them do that and it gives us some more time with the little kids. We are all tired and happy and have our sandwiches all ready for sp mtg tomorrow. We jumped in the hottub when we got home and took Alinya in for the first time and she calls it the 'teeny bath' which I love! What a kid. She loved it and kicked and splashed the whole time. The fire is burning strong and I will be headed to bed soon....zzzzzzzzz

Looks like you have lots of snow! No snow here just rain. Warm and cozy house tho. Have a good day tomorrow.

Wow - you are all looking so "Swiss". Thanks for updating- thought you had jumped over to Facebook or something. The girls are headed to mom and dad's this week and are very excited - too bad the Swiss cousins are Sooooo far away.
