Halloween 2009!

It was definately fun to be back in the U.S. for Halloween this year. We actually got the girls their Halloween costumes back in May when we went to Disneyland Paris. Our girls don't know how lucky they are!

Fall Fun!

We had a beautiful fall in Cincinnati and were able to get out and enjoy some fun activities in the area with our neighbors.

Outdoor Baseball!

In October we were given Mark's company season tickets to a Cincinnati Red's game. For those of you not familiar with professional sports- that's their baseball team. We had great seats and it was fun to be outside and watch the game with beautiful weather. Minnesota is gonna love it next year!!!!!

Ericka's First Day of Schoo!

Ericka's first day of school was another big change for her, but she handled like a champ. She attends Pattison Elementary and is very lucky to have a wonderful teacher. She's made lots of new friends and seems to be adjusting well. On the way to her first day of school she asked me "Do they speak English here?". Rather funny, but also sad as Ericka was so lucky to attend an international school last year in Luxembourg and have friends who didn't speak English.


What do the girls love best about our new house (besides for their pink bedrooms)? These pictures will tell you. We have so many deer in our neighborhood and see them in our yard almost everyday. The girls love having breakfast at the table every morning and just watch them laying in the yard or walking through.We are definately not living in the city anymore!

Welcome home to Cincinnati!

I know it's been a while since I've posted anything on the blog. Moving in to a new house and learning a new city has pretty much taken up most of my time. But on August 28th 2009 we became the owners of this beautiful home about 15 miles east of downtown Cincinnati. Many of you have been bothering me for weeks to put up some pictures of our house so here you go. My favorite part of the new house is my BIG kitchen!!
