Saying Goodbye

This will be my last blog.

The girls have left.  I am so sad.  The house seems so quiet and their room’s seem empty.
I am so grateful for the time that we had them and look forward to seeing them again.

Thank you to Christa, Robert, Nikola,
Henrick, Hanne, Laura and Jeppe
for sharing them with us.
We will always treasure the
time we had together.

Love and good wishes to you all,

Bon Voyage Party

The girls had their
going away party tonight. 
It was happy and sad all at the same time.

We played silly games like Simon Says
and Musical Chairs...
Hula Hoop...

and even had a water balloon war.

After the fun and games we had hotdogs,
chips, watermellon and cake.

Their friends here will miss them
…and so will I.

Home From Texas

Well the girls are home from Texas and they had a grand time!  I would like to say a great big Texas THANK YOU to my wonderful brother-in-law, Dan and to my awesome sister, Jami for everything!

The girls went in style out to eat at the Downtown Aquarium and to a Broadway musical, “The Best Little Whore House In Texas.”  My mother, my sister Jennifer and two of her children, Natalie and Jake and Jami went with them.  They had a blast!

What We Do When We Are Doing Nothing

Starting the process of packing stuff up to mail back to Austria.

Nanna sorting through her things...what to keep?  What to throw away?

Lazing around on the couch on Saturday.

Facebook and music!

Nanna has gotten taller!

And this is why! 
Hop On Pop!

Yasmina didn't want to be left out!!!

Look!  No hands!

Playing in the rain.

It was raining pretty hard.

Yasmina - love the face!
