My parents were out 2 months ago in hopes they would be here for Lily's birth. Even though they stayed a week past my due date Lily wasn't ready to come out, so they had to leave before meeting the newest grand baby. They took advantage of the Thanksgiving holiday weekend to fly out here again to finally meet this little girl

Of course we couldn't make a trip to Gruyere without having some authentic fondue

crowded that place was.
The Creux du Van is a natural rocky cirque of approximately 1,400 metres of width and 150 metres of depth.

Now that Thanksgiving is over, we are getting geared up for Christmas. Jack is really excited about everything this year and it is so cute to watch. When I ask what he wants for Christmas he usually says "presents" and then when I ask what kind of presents he usually just says whatever he is looking at that moment: "toys" "water" "books" etc. I just hope his wish list stays this easy for the next 14 years ;-)
The other day we had some friends over to make gingerbread houses.

|Love the baby smiles|
|Trying to get in some "tummy time"|
|Most of tummy time is spend face down like this|
It is so funny how different Jack and Lily look, but every once in a while I get a glimpse of similarities.
