⪧ We left our life in New York City to make a new one in Provence ⪦

Merry Christmas with the Johnsons.



Six of us Johnson kids met up in Pittsburgh (! of all places) for Christmas. My parents are Mission Presidents for the Mormon Church there, where they will spend three years. None of us had ever been to Pittsburgh, so...



We rode up the overlook and saw the city.





Had a ball with Uncle Andrew, who pulled out a laser pen at some point and Colette chased it like a kitten (calling after the light "little fellow! Little fellow, come back here!")



Went into town and enjoyed some sister/papa time.



Hung out with a lot of gorgeous babies.











Got inspired by some gingerbread houses and then made some at home.







Went caroling randomly (my parents are always spreading cheer) - brothers and dad looking and sounding tremendous. Andrew pulled out his violin and played anything requested.



Colette found the dress up box and wouldn't wear anything but fanciful medleys.



Romy Danda - charmer.







Tennis with Marguerite, ball girl - extraordinaire.



And bowling. The Johnsons love games, competition, action - bowling, ping pong, hikes - you name it - all the time.



We were just sad Marc was in Brooklyn and Julie and fam in South Africa.

Glad you enjoyed riding the incline and looking over the gorgeous view from Mt. Washington. AND -- your photo of "The Point" is amazing. (Only sad that neither the fountain or the Christmas Tree was in evidence!) Also -- great gingerbread house! Sounds like you all had a blast in Pittsburgh with your folks.

Thanks for posting all this, Em. I wish I could have spent some of that time with all of you at Christmas. You're like my 2nd family. Love!
