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!!
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!
