I found this photo the other day while looking for something else and laughed. Hope everyone had a great Christmas. I have the week off (which means only going into work three half days) so Sarah and I are hanging out and I am trying to get some snowboarding in. It has been cold here but NOTHING compared to the great Michigan �Wind Chill Factor�, these people over here don�t know how good they have it.

Tonight Sarah and I were talking about the baby and looked up week 32 in the book she has. There was a section on charting movements and marking a chart after every five �baby movements�. Sarah had to laugh because basically most of every day and night is baby movement time; it is seriously a party in there.

We will post more belly pics soon. Until then...

Getting everything stocked up. We have a mix of s/he cloths right now. I think the baby is going to be mix and match for awhile at the beginning.

The baby / our room is almost ready, just need the baby now. Since our apartment is only a one bedroom we moved the living room into the bedroom and the bedroom into the living room to win a little more space. We just got the armoire and have a matching dresser on order. The rocker is on loan from some friends in Geneva and the crib was a gift from our Jeff, Amy and Ian. Posted by Picasa

Today (Monday) we went to our French friends� house for a early dinner. Dominique and Laurent have been our �French Connection� since we arrived oh so long ago. We had a great time with them as always.

Christmas Day we drove up the mountain and took some pictures in the snow. The fog was blowing through the trees and freezing. Visibility was terrible but it was very beautiful.

I took some more pictures of these children�s drawings for families in Geneva the other night. I really like these guys.

Sarah has started doing the last trimester shuffle. Really though things are going great. The baby is still moving around like crazy, today you could see things poking up through her shirt. It�s a party in there.

Decorating for Christmas in Geneva seems to be a bit of a competition between hotels. The President Wilson went with air freshener Christmas trees and disco balls this year. The trees were in all the windows but high winds kept blowing them down. You get the idea though.

Santa is a little taller in Switzerland. We went to a Christmas Festival in Carouge today. It was cold but we had a great time. After walking around we had a great cheese and potatoes dinner with our English friends Phil and Catherine.

In Geneva along the lake they have all these kids drawings of families. The one I like was much further down the lake and it was VERY cold so NO PHOTO. All of these are great though.

I love the old school French ambulance; this one is near our apartment.

Sarah made me this great stocking last week. It was this "hand wash only" sweater I ordered online last year. I thought if I washed it once it may shrink up a bit. Well after one wash it was the size of this stocking. I have learned you dont mess with the hand wash only tags. Cool stocking though. Posted by Picasa

So Geneva is decked out for Christmas this year. They let all these different artists decorate different parts of the city. I particularly liked the Plastic Zip Tie snow balls. Very very nice...

So boy or girl, s/he, we don’t know. Leave a comment (by clicking on the comment link down there on the right) and let us know what you think.

Do the same for any other photos or comments you want to say something about.


In order to keep the ratio of pictures of stuff to pictures of people somewhat even I am making this personal sacrifice. I guess you can put bottles and things on this to wash in the dishwasher or to dry or something. Or you can do this with it.

The Charcuterie "butcher shop" is getting ready for the local Escalade celebration in Geneva next week. French troops were invading the city in 1602 and as the army�s were fighting Mme. Royaume dumped her vegetable soup on advancing soldiers defending her city. They also sell big and small chocolate pots full of candy vegetables.
