Valentine’s Day

If your name is Liesl, every day is a good day for pink. So Valentine’s day is a *really* great day for pink, especially pink shoes. I didn’t even know Converse came in pink. This pair was a big hit not least because they were ‘tie shoes’.

We marked the day with pink porridge for breakfast (Patrick was not amused), the timely arrival of care packages (thanks!), and Belgian chocolate. Here’s hoping your day was great.

Nativity Play

Isaac and Liesl acted in a Nativity play in a retirement home on Sunday. They didn’t have speaking parts, but did have a great time being shepherds and wise men. This was the first nativity play I’ve seen with Irish dancers–“And the angels danced with joy . . . ” que the Irish dancers!

Here are a few pics from December, including Santa’s visit to Liesl’s school and the play.
