Muttertags Cafe'

On Tuesday, 12May, Julian's class had a "Muttertags Cafe" to celebrate Mothers Day. It was an enjoyable afternoon with coffee, prosecco, cake and brez'n (pretzels)! We were treated to a performance by the kids and of course, some homemade goodies!

Julian is 4th from the left...














Pretty in Pink...

We celebrated Mother's Day with the realization that Ava is already getting her first tooth! EVERYTHING goes in her mouth now :) Here are a few recent shots of her...enjoy!

Just Julian...

Oh the life and times of a 2 year old! She is quite a character and has really started expressing herself...sometimes in English...sometimes in German...how cool huh? Here are a few random shots from this past week...what joy she brings to our lives!



Yes, that is a duck call...a lovely gift from her birthday...you can only imagine!

"Blues Clues" Party...

On Saturday, May 2nd, we held Julian's "Blues Clues" Birthday BBQ. We moved her party back a few weeks so that 1) her grandparents would be here with us to celebrate and 2) hopefully the weather would be nice. Well, so much for wishful thinking...the weather was HORRIBLE! But, the party was fun and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves. Here are a few pictures of the cake, which I did make and decorate all by myself, and of her posing with her new shades...she is such a riot! (Thanks Aunt C for the photo of her blowing out her candles!)
