We sneaked up for the New Years Weekend to spend some time skiing and rubbing shoulders with the rich and famous. I so do NOT have any desire to be rich a famous. But they are sure fun to look at when you walk down town Gstaad. :D
Gstaad is located in the German part of Switzerland only 1 hour and 45 minutes from our home. So perfect and drop dead gorgeous with the mountain tops surrounding the valley. The top picture is our view from the flat. Ain't that just amazing!
We got lucky with lots of snow. I mean LOTS. I am talking about 20 inches, 50 cm... Emmy went to ski school for the first time and won a Gold medal for being the fastest down the kiddie hill. :D Me proud Mama!!!
We went skiing and dining, raclette of course, and yes, Jay just can't look normal in a picture, I am sorry about that but that is just the way he is.
We celebrated the New Year in our flat, in ski long johns and fleece shirts. Had a wonderful Jay the Chef dinner that of course were miles better than any restaurant food. I am a lucky woman having a professional chef cooking for me almost every day. That girls, is a real treat!
