Samichlaus comes to town!

And as always he was accompanied by Schmutzli, dressed in brown robe, with very wet and fed up donkey! Read more about the Swiss custom of St. Nicholas on December 6th!

Today I visited Kerry, Ross and charming Jamie - now nearly 5 months and an absolute charmer. Smiling, touching faces, sucking fingers and screaming every now and again. Do you thinking smelling babies can influence my chances? :-)
