Heidiland 2

In March, the whole family went skiing in Toggenburg, a valley in the far est of Switzerland. Amazing landscapes, with steep slopes and little farms placed on their top. Snow was already melting down but it didn't prevent Arthur from learning how to ski, while I was hiking with Tom.

Some random pictures to let you know that we are all doing well, busy growing, developping new skills, marveling life and getting to know more people in Basel...

Quelques photos pour vous dire que nous allons bien, très occupés à grandir, apprendre de nouveaux trucs et astuces, à trouver la vie merveilleuse, à rencontrer de nouvelles personnes à Bâle et à connaiître cette ville...

Heidiland

In February, we went skiing in Grächen, a little village well preserved in the valley of Zermatt. I fell in love with the atmosphere and the wooden "chalets".

More pictures in the photo gallery on the right, in the album called Grächen.

Since then the snow is all gone! But still, the Jura mountains are beautiful all covered in a white blanket!

Preparing Christmas

Our boys are really busy crafting cards and gifts for Christmas. Especially Arthur who was asking for a Christmas tree for weeks! We went into the woods this last weekend, where the tree cutters gave us a saw so that we could choose and cut our own tree! We had a great time hunting for our special tree. It is now loaded with decorations made and bought by Arthur, who put on the lights every time he comes home! This is truly a magical period for children!!
