WU Ball at the Vienna Hofburg

We went to the ball in January, but we were waiting to get some pics from our friends since we didn’t take many (we were using our babysitter’s camera, ours was broken). By the way, Chris typed the first half of the post, and Karen the second, so it might be confusing, but just assume…

Man Catching Beignets

We took Elora to see the movie, “The Princess and the Frog”. It takes place in New Orleans and the main character cooks something called beignets. They looked good, so we set to work trying to figure out what they were so we could cook some too! We looked up a couple recipes, and modified…

Bubbles in the Kitchen – an oldie but a goodie

These pictures were taken a few weeks back, but we’ve been busy and hadn’t put them up yet. What do you do in the winter when the kids are sick of being inside, but it’s too cold to go out? It’s bubbles in the kitchen time! Elora tries to eat and lick the bubbles while…

Happy Birthday Oliver!

Oliver turned two years old on February 14th. We had a party for him on the 18th. Our friends Christine and Elcid came over early to help us cook up tons of Filippino/Chinese food. Here we are preparing spring rolls (which as it turns out is super easy and super good!) While we cooked, the…

Bagels!

My big sister Sharon emailed me a recipe for bagels (which I can’t get here!!!!!) and I finally decided to try it out. I haven’t had a bagel in over a year and a half, I can’t believe it… Elora was super excited to help roll out the dough. She was so happy about making…

Last day in Kitzbühel on the Horn

On our last day we took Elora and Oliver up to the Kitzbüheler Horn. There is a nice ski area with some beginner runs at the top. Unfortunately, the weather was not as nice as earlier in the week when we took the above picture. A funny note, about the Kitzbüheler Horn. If you click…

Elora’s skiing progress in Kitzbühel

We’ve been having a lot of fun skiing in Kitzbühel, we completed the “ski safari” the other day, when the runs were less crowded thanks to some gloomy weather. Here we are “sandwiched” in between a layer of clouds. It was fun to ski through the hazy misty where all was white. I like to…

Skiing in Kitzbühel

We’re skiing in Kitzbühel right now. The ritzy (kitzy?) Austrian ski resort. Kitzbühel is a medieval-styled village, which actually dates back to 1300BC. The town has a lot of history, but also a lot of ski history. Kitzbühel is home to the most treacherous run in the ski world cup — the Streif on the…

Chris’ Birthday!

Chris celebrated his birthday a couple weeks ago. We didn’t have a big party, just some cake and whipped cream, but I thought it would be fun to travel down memory lane and check out a few other birthdays Chris has celebrated before lookings at pics from this year. This is probably more fun for…
