January Blur

January was a bit of a blur, mainly due to jet lag and the exhausting feat of trying to get back into our Swiss routine. Now that it's finally February, we feel much more grounded, rested and organized. But, we did manage to squeeze in some fun while we were acclimating back! 

Afternoon walk in the snow around Schwarzenburg.

Playing in the mirror room at the museum with Kristina.


Walking around Bern, watching the bears watch us.

Cheese Fondue vending machine at the base of a ski slope! Ha!

Hanging out at the base while dad skis some laps.


Helping mom cook!


Desperately missing daddy's night time help (he's been away in Denver for a bit).

Story time with Daddy is the best.

Idaho Christmas!

Over Christmas we were very lucky to have spent almost two full weeks in snowy Idaho! Nat's parents recently bought a beautiful house in Hailey and we all had a fantastic time staying with them. We skied almost everyday, sledded, watched bunnies, celebrated Christmas and rang in the new year in Sun Valley style with all our buddies and Nat's family. It was a truly wonderful two weeks and I can't wait to be back, hopefully soon!


Daddy made it out for the whole time too!

Washington D.C. and Colorado!

Cora and I spent an entire month in America for Christmas this year, visiting DC, Ohio, Colorado and Idaho. It was a terrific time and we were so happy our travels and visits all went very well and we all had a GREAT time. We loved seeing the Baus family in Ohio, spending time playing in the snow with the grandparents in both Colorado and Idaho, and visiting museums with Aunt Marisa in DC! Cora was also spoiled rotten with Christmas gifts at each stop along the way! Here is a recap in photos from D.C. and Colorado (Idaho coming soon ...).
