I got back home to Thessaloniki last Sunday afternoon, Jan. 1, and when the babies woke up from the naps, they got their big present for the year -- balance bikes! (thanks Grandpa and Nan!)
We then rode them out in the hallway, which has a nice long, relatively obstruction-free stretch for them to practice on. Of course, Phoebe's bike is pink (above).
And Paul's is blue.
And Benjamin's is green, reflecting their favorite colors.
Phoebe and Pelagia sharing a laugh out in the hallway.
Our next-door neighbor Ann's brother Peter is visiting from Australia. He's quite good with the kids. Above, he's playing with Paul while Phoebe enjoys a candy cane.
On Sunday evening, we had our neighbors as well as Angela's family over for a visit and for some pumpkin cheesecake that Pelagia made.
