After trying to prepare the kids for an English winter with no snow, we had a huge snow storm! The entire town practically shut down for 5 days. Anthony enjoyed working from home, since the trains were all thrown off schedule, the kids had almost the entire week off school, and they all loved playing in the snow again! Frosty stayed in our back yard for almost 2 weeks!

Matthew now joins Andrew and Brooke 2 days a week at pre-school. He absolutely loves it! He runs in there with so much excitement, the teachers have to send him back out to give me a kiss good-bye.

We took the kids into London to see a winter ballet and go to the Hyde Park Christmas Market. We were proud of ourselves for going sans stroller, and got a little creative with baby carriers (Matthew asleep in the Beco in photo #2). Anthony got the star for the day by carrying three kids at a time (see photo #3: Will in the Bjorn on front, Brooke in the Beco on back, and Andrew in his arms. Very impressive.) This market was a little different than the ones we frequented in Switzerland and Germany because of all the rides. The Helter-Skelter was a bit much for our kids, but they loved a few of the smaller roller coasters and merry-go-rounds. But the favorite part of the whole excursion seemed to be the train and tube rides. They had no problem at all posing for photos, making friends with strangers and driving all the home-bound commuters crazy. It was a great London adventure.
