Introducing Our New “Daughter” Michaela!

michi and sarahNow that we have MOST of the boxes moved into our new home, and are happily ensconced in our new digs, I’m happy to announce the newest development in the Saxton household: our new au pair/honorary daughter, Michaela Enzinger from Germany. This photo was taken the day after she arrived, when the four of us went to a Reading Phillies baseball game with several other EurAuPair arrivals.

Yes, she IS that cute. And Sarah is enchanted!

Michi is an energetic vegetarian, which is bound to be good for ALL of us. Yesterday I came home to a simmering vegetable soup on the stove. Sunday we had vegetarian lasagne (my own creation, which I’ll share tomorrow). Later after Sarah was in bed, we curled up and split a Mike’s Margarita between us, and plotted an adventure for the weekend. While watching Big Bang Theory.

It’s going to be a great year!

Have you ever had an au pair in your family? Tell me about it.
