Party

Yesterday evening, we had a party of DH´s company at the Pandoer. They had different locations with different buffets so there was something for everyone. They also had entertainment with a guy that made drawings and a photographer that took pictures. So, we decided to have our picture taken, and you can see one of the results above... no seriously, they took a couple of really good ones, this one we were laughing because of all the postures she put us in.
Not much to tell, work, school and the kids are keeping me busy. I am still crocheting hexagons for the blanket I am making.

The mug will go with me to work and the plate will go in the kitchen. ALso love the cupcake passport holder, which will be very helpful since I have a couple of trips ahead of me.
Thank you soooo much.

Auf Wiedersehen

Yesterday we left for home. When we were driving toward Kitzb├╝del, this was the sight, wow... We didn´t know then that it would be a day off ´stau´, snow and rain and a lot of traffic chaos. Our friends took the road Munchen - Frankfurt and only had problems. As I forgot my ski jacket in the hotel in Augsburg and we went to pick it up, we only had one traffic jam due to road works.

Our last breakfast together...


And this is how our boys travel...

We made it back home safe and sound, so we can start dreaming about our next ski holiday.

Last day

This was the sight we met this morning when we woke up, the path to the door was completely snowed in. So we started shoffling this morning at 6.30 to make sure that the baker could reach us for our bread.

Next was our car... Yes, there is a car underneath that pile of snow.

Then, there was time to play, so we all went out to engage in snowball fights, and an occasional nosedive in the snow.



The guy that cleanes our path now and then left his snow machine before our door, it turned out that a belt broke and he had to repair it.

As you can see, snow fun all day until it got dark. At the moment the kids are in bed and
everything is packed in the car, so we are ready to leave in the morning.

So, this is our last family picture. We had a great time, a wonderfull and relaxed holiday. And yes, I crocheted all those vikings hats.

Day of the big race

So today was the day of the big races. Anne was up first, so we had a look at her race. The two small ones were more interested in the abyss they were facing.

Anne did great in her slalom race, as she and only a few others were allowed to do slalom and the smaller ones did only a ´downhill´ race.

After lunch the two boys were up, but the wind picked up and a small snow storm started, so it was quite cold to stand there but the boys enjoyed every minute of it.

Son #2 had a bit of difficulty on the lift as the boy next to him fell of it and he could barely hang on, but he managed until the place were they were supposed to leave.

Son #2 starting his slalom, he did great as he was the second smallest and the youngest of the group. He was the only one that didn´t need a skipass as he is only 5.

Son #1 did very good, he skied very well. Again, he was one of the youngest of the group.

Son #2 became 4th, a very good job, very well done.

Son #1 turned 3rd. Again, a very good performance. We are very proud of all 3 kids, they did very well under very hard conditions.

Day 5

Today was a day full of snow. It startes snowing this morning and it only got worse. The kids had trouble skiing, but they managed although they were frozen when we picked them up at the lesson.

In the afternoon it stopped snowing, and since we had to go to the store (we were out of toliet paper :-) ), the men cleared/dug out the car... and went to the store to get the necessities as the locals expect only more snow, around 70 cm. So we will see what the weather bring us.

So DH did the groceries and cooked... (we went out to eat).



Great meal, great service and a playroom for the kids = happy parents.

First day off classes

This morning the ski classes for the kids started, so it was a bit of a hectic morning to get 5 kids under 8 ready for a fun filled day of skiing and sleding. But we managed so here are some pictures of our day.
The kids are unbeatable and the guys... well, you can see for yourself...

New Year´s day

Yesterday night the kids spent some time outside playing with kids fireworks.


DH tried to light one of those Thai Hot air things, but it didn´t go up, so we extinghuised it with snow.


And as you can see, we had a great time celebrating the New Year.
