We are off

bright and early tomorrow, heading for the mountains, where we'll spend the week, and then on down to Montpellier for Frédéric's training. Since we'll most likely be disconnected all week (unless I can find an unprotected wireless network up there, which I sort of doubt), I'll leave you with a few Christmas pictures to hold you over until we get back to the land of internet connections.

We started letting the boys open one present per night on Sunday. What can I say, I'm impatient! As it turned out, I think I prefer that method. They got more time to appreciate each gift that way rather than tossing it aside to open the next one right away. Maybe we should start a 12 days of Christmas tradition - or however-many-presents-they-have days of Christmas.

Here is Benjamin with one of his presents (look familiar, Alex?)

His work of art - he says it is "a monkey and a man in a yellow hat". Any guesses as to what we've been reading lately?

Noah's favorite part of Christmas, the wrapping paper

We hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and I'll let you know when we make it to Montpellier!

Safe trip! My boys love trains!!! And those cars Noah has are some of our favorites too! Hopefully we'll get to see you sometime in 2009! Oh, and by the way, we've been having lots of fires in our fireplace now - I LOVE IT!
