My SIL made me these paintings of our kids. Today we gave them a nice place close to our bedroom, so we will be watching them everyday when we decent the stairs.

Austria - Last day

Today is our last day here in Austria. As promised, I wouldpost a pic of the hats I made for the whole family. Here they are, roman helmets.

And a last pic of the family before they went off this afternoon for a last afternoon of skiing, while I have a rest here on the balcony in the sun. If only we could stay another week... :-).
It has been great fun, so we will hopefully do it again next year.

Austria - day 6

Today was the day of the Rennen... Only the girls and son #3 participated, the two eldest boys didnt want to. 

So they went skiing with their dad.

Lotte Bombalina turned out #3 in her group. Well done girl.

Son #3 became #4, also very well done.

And this was the sight that we woke up to this morning. At the moment it is snowing, so tomorrow we will have fresh snow.

Austria - Day 5


Today we had a day off. The kids didnt have ski lessons, so we slept in. Afterwards we took the smallest ones to the piste as they wanted to ski. So we let them ski alone, they were allowed to take the lift up and then ski down on the slope where we were standing.

The older kids went sleding and now they are all off to the swimming pool.

Austria - New Year

Happy New Year to you all. We entered 2014 with a lot of fire works. Son #1 was all excited and he bought some fire works with his dad.
