Christmas in Thailand with Mom and Dad, Kate and Adrian, Brian and Jen

We were so lucky this Christmas to be able to meet up with so many family members in such an idyllic spot: Thailand! First, we met up with Adrian and Kate in Bangkok for just a couple of nights before we headed out to Krabi with them.  Then with the lovebirds, we met my mom and dad in Koh Lanta.  Once Adrian and Kate left we took my folks to Phi Phi Island.  We then ventured over to Phuket and stayed at a beautiful beach there.  And of course we ended our trip in superb Bangkok!  Along the way, we were also able to catch up with Brian and Jen in both Koh Lanta and Bangkok.  It was a fabulous trip.  Take a look!

Here’s our one and only family shot from Thailand. (We were silly not to get one while Brian and Jen Krembs were also there:(.)

The ferry boat started out just fine as we were leaving the port, but once we were in open water, I swear to God, I thought we were goners!

Here we all are at the fair in Bangkok—but luckily both couples got our jobs before the fair.  Yahoo!  What a relief!

I am really quite happy with my new haircut—so happy in fact that I thought I would post about the experience.  I’m even happier about using the InStyle Makeover!  It’s so fun.  Mary, thanks for sharing the link.

  • First, find the look you want.  I went with Heidi Klum’s new hairdo.
  • Next, upload an image of yourself.  They encourage a face shot, so I chose a picture where my hair was pulled back.
  • Then you add the hair to your image.  Of course, I changed the color.
  • The last pic is my actual hair.  The stylist did a great job—I think!

Vincent is beside himself with excitement to move to Beijing!  The most interesting prospect for him is the weather. He cannot wait to be cold!  (Little does he know that this excitement will last approximately 2.2 seconds!)  At any rate, last night when we sat down to the table, he was wearing the scarf Santa gave him for Christmas.  Gigi then joined him. And, he continued to wear it through the night post dinner.  Oh, and he brought the scarf to school today.  Excited?  I think so!!
