Alinya was mad at me because I wouldn't let her eat any chocolate after refusing to eat her dinner. A few minutes after dinner she was caught redhanded trying to con her brothers into slipping her the goods on the sly. I was forced to post a reminder on her person and she actually got into it after that. Funny gal. The one of mom and dad with a hand holding a nut is Ralph saying 'they're driving me nuts' about his inlaws:) Dylan making us his nightly hot chocolate with whipped cream and chocolate powder sprinkled on top:)

We worked outside today a little. Things are getting kind of out of control so some spraying was my WWI era sprayer? It only weighs about 100 pounds. Comfy to carry around on the back:)

The parents

an 11 year old boy

A 11 year old?! Yes, we have one...Hannes, mom and uncle Ed had birthdays yesterday. Hannes wanted a trotinette (razor) and requested crème brulée for dessert. I think it was more about the torch part for the sugar but it was really tasty too.


We spent a beautiful Friday evening with Heidi and Markus on the occasion of their 30th wedding anniversary. They chose a small romantic hotel with a fantastic restaurant-we ate and chatted and ate some more, slept like royalty and then met again at the breakfast table for some more food:) truly a weight watchers occasion! The weather cooperated and we took in the breathtaking scenery from our balcony. Ahhh..thanks Markus and Heidi for a great time and to Nani for watching our brood here at home.
