Happy New Year!

The year ended beautifully.

We have been spending quality time with my oldest daughter. I have taught her to bake and knit in a few short weeks. She is a fast learner.

She has made homemade apple pie, biscuits, cookies, pancakes, syrup, quiche, and soup not to mention what a big help she has been to me in the kitchen preparing meals.  

Knitting has been more challenging since she has pulled out the stitches to one knitted scarf at least over fifty times. I am not sure but I think she has hung up her knitting needles for the moment out of frustration. She can knit but gets going to fast and makes little mistakes that require starting all over again! :)

We have tried to get out and show her some of Switzerland.  I really wish we could show her the Alps up close but that will have to wait until later.

Below are some photos I took over the Christmas holiday.  I hope you had a wonderful holiday full of good food, family and friends.

Our Christmas tree
Our Christmas tree before Emmie Cat knocked off all the bottom ornaments.

How time flys
The first ornament I bought for Angel when she was born. I can’t believe this is her 13th Christmas already!

When she was born we called her a cone head due to the shape of her head from the pressure of traveling through the birth canal.  My dad called her baldy for about a year until her hair finally started to come in thicker.  He even made me cry once because he was calling my beautiful baby girl a baldy.  

Angel wasn’t alone since all of my children started out in the world bald but beautiful.  Did you read that Dad????  See I can finally admit that my babies were all bald!  :)

Emmie Cat is a bad, bad cat!!!
Here is Emmie Cat caught red-handed trying to knock off an ornament.  She, also, enjoys trying to climb up the tree via the trunk. Once she almost made it all the way up to the top of the tree while I held my breath waiting for the tree to fall over with cat and all!  

Luckily for her it did not.

Happy New Year!!!
Happy New Year everyone!!!

    Happy New Year! All of the kids in my family were born with hair. But people always thought that was weird! :)
