Christmas Eve

December 24th, 2008

Every Christmas Eve, we have a tradition in the Leigh family, we are allowed to open one gift, which is our pajamas. We are missing one in our photo this year; Jean-Marc had his appendix removed this afternoon and is in the hospital for the holidays. Everything went well, but it is sad that we won’t be celebrating Maya’s first Christmas together.
Here is Maya, Pfitzauf and Me in our Christmas pajamas:

Letter for 2006

December 24th, 2008

I found my 2006 letter and thought that I wold publish it here, so you have a quick idea about that year.

Bonjour Everyone and Happy New Year,

Can you believe that it has already been one year since my last letter? Lets see, this year started with us buying seasonal ski passes to Val dIsere. It was one cold winter that didnt bring us much snow until March. Needless to say, we didnt do too much else but ski until May, got to make that money back somehow!! April brought Stacey and Mike with their clients to Paris. I met up with them there and played tour guide. It was fun to be able to use my knowledge of French and negotiating skills for them. We went to the Louvre, Arch of Triumph, Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame, Disneyland Paris, and did some sightseeing from the Seine of the monuments on a Bateau-Mouche. We had a great time. I was also able to update her wine stock for the wedding by lugging, more than my body weight worth of wine, to Paris. It was interesting.
In May, Jean-Marc surprised me with a long Romantic weekend at a little spa in Lake Constance Germany. What a relaxing weekend. We visited the island of Manau which is covered by all sorts of flowers. It is something special to see. I got to see where the Led Zepplins got started. Then we took a ferry across the lake to Switzerland, were we saw a pretty waterfall.
July brought us a huge headache, as our car would not stop breaking down and costing us a fortune. As, soon as it was fixed, a day or 2 later it would break down again. So, I work some killer hours to try to help out with the payments. We did go to the annual fair in my in-laws town of Az. We actually got to take a 30 minute tour in a helicopter. It was very cool.
August, we did manage to take a couple of days to visit some friends in a little town called Lautrec, where you can buy the best pink garlic! A week later had me off to Cairo for work for 2 weeks. It was something else, but was unfortunately to busy to really visit the sites. So, I headed back to Grenoble for a day, only to take off the next day to Ireland to visit my girlfriend Sharon in Galway. Jean-Marc and I had a treat trying to figure out driving on the opposite side of some really, really small roads. What a beautiful country, but man can it ran and it has a lot of sheep.

October and November were all about scrap booking. One of my girlfriends here in France is a complete addict to it. So, I was able to squeeze out almost 2 projects with her encouragement. It is nice to have found someone as insane as myself about scrap booking. She is actually be worst than me, but is one talented girl. The end of November and December had me crazy preparing for my trip home for three weeks for the holidays and Stacey wedding ( never thought she would have it). It was total insanity before I left, as we decided to purchase a car, got tired of the other one breaking down and paying a fortune for it, the day before I left for Boston. My negotiating skills were once again put to the test. Funny, Jean-Marc is the frenchy, but I end up having to do all the negotiating, go figure. At least I am good for something.

So, it brings us to where I am writing this letter, on the plane with Pfitzauf on our way to Boston and cant wait to get there!! I look forward to seeing everyone there. I hope that I will get a good ole New England snow storm, so Stacey can have a white wedding, just as long as it isnt on the day of her wedding.

I hope that you all had a good year. Happy Holidays and have a great 2007!!

PS: Im still waiting for some visitors!
