Afternoon Walk, and a Late Thanksgiving

The sun came out today, for the first time in several days, so while my pumpkin pie cooled Zach and I took a walk around the village and took a few pictures with the new camera. Below is a sampling:

The snow! It's melting! Nooooooo!! ; )
The incredible growing belly. =P
We came across a bunch of girls taking horse-riding lessons, and this little girl and her pony were just adorable beyond words!
The village Christmas decorations are out!

Our Thanksgiving(ish) dinner was tonight. I'd gotten some chickens from Coop to make, and also some salad and green beans, and baked the pumpkin pie and pumpkin bread. Mélanie and Sylvan brought mashed potatoes and prosecco, Sophia and Tyler brought candied yams, Sara and Christov brought carrot cupcakes with cream cheese frosting and some bread from their town's famous French bakery, and Jonathan brought some wine and beer. It was an incredible meal, each dish utterly delicious, and somehow we still had some room left over to sample the scrumptious desserts. I'd say our first Swiss dinner party was a success, and I'm very much inspired to have more of them. Which I guess I'll have to hurry up and do before baby comes... ; )


  1. Gorgeous photos! THe little girl on the pony with the huge Blue pad is too cute!!!

  2. Anonymous8:38 AM chileans celebrate thanksgiving? i'm curious...

  3. No, but my mother is American and I lived in the US from age 11 till 26 so the holiday has become a bit ingrained in me anyway.
