He came from the East bearing gifts.

My very own wise man... :D

Matthieu got home yesterday at 1pm and was at work a half an hour later with strick instructions that I was not allowed to look in his suitcase!  Now, if he hadn't said that I would not have been incredible tempted everytime I passed by it all afternoon yesterday.  Then, last night he pulled out gift after gift after gift.  the kids all got tees and a beautiful new playmat.  I got a gorgeous 'real' pashmina scarf.  Who knew that mountain goat beard could be so soft!!  who knew that real pashmina comes from mountain goat beard LOL!!  Then out came the bling, a silk painting, an embroidered bed cover, an embroidered shirt with a heart on it and he's keeping some aside for Valentine's day and my birthday :D  A week alone with the kids was totally worth all this spoiling!!

His camera battery died and he hasn't recharged it yet and I'm not allowed near the suitcase still so how about some baby pix ;)Francetteoutfit Headinhands Cuddle Twinkle

India Week

Long time?  yeah, I know...  I've been a tad busy ;)

Christmas was great, Angela was here with us, everyone was spoiled and we had a great time.

Thursday, Matthieu left for a business trip to India.  He's having a great time, basically living in the lap of luxury for a week, except for one half day that he spent working ;)  He called last night to tell us that he rode a camel and slept in a tent in the desert.  Not a sporty little camping tent, a huge thing and he even slept on a real bed ;)  Can't wait to see his photos!!

So, of course that means that I'm home alone with 4 kids.  That fact that I'm writing this tells you that I'm not doing too badly.  I don't have too much time to myself but I'm doing fine :D  Mind you I wouldn't want to do this forever...  Can't wait until Friday when he come home!

The boys are doing well, they are missing their dad but they are being good.  Jacques had a field trip yesterday and had a great time.

Juliet is growing, smiling ALL the time, laughing and gooing and is such a joy!!  She now goes to bed at 11 instead of 12pm, so that's makes life easier.  I moved her bath back 15 mins at time so she gets sleepy sooner and I'll probably go 15mins more so that I can go to bed at 11pm :D  Here are some photos from today, can you see that her eyes are blue?  I had to include the big smile one even if it is overexposed!Bigsmile Greydress Greydresssmile Smileatmommy Tongue
