Swiss Roo+s







I found an amazing local restaurant that serves authentic Swiss Cuisine called "Chef Hans" located in Winter Park, FL. On the way there, I had a very interesting conversation with my Grandma Judy about our Swiss roots. She said our family was one of five families that founded Gresso (we are also from Zurich and Chur)... she said much more than I can write here. I was inspired to call because I wanted an outfit for Enso that reflected his Swiss heritage (yes for this year's Christmas card). I wanted to know if we had family that wouldn't mind buying him an authentic Lederhosen. Last year he wore a traditional Bolivian parka (in addition to the baby Mozart outfit). Anyway I found Lederhosen on eBay and also found several of the sites and treasures shown here.

Those are the cutest lederhosen ever! You need to get them for Enso. I kind of want to get some for Talah and she's a girl!!!
