Yes, and it looks like Christian in the back seat. I guess that Mary drives home after fetching Christian from school

That's weird, unless the cousins had the sniffles.

Wonder what's in that huge Toys R Us bag - I love toys.

I love the new pictures of the twins! They are both adorable. Little Josephine's eyes don't look quite as blue as they once did. I wouldn't be surprised if they turned brown or some other color. (My siblings were all born with blue eyes but they later changed to hazel, brown, and greenish gray.)

Did Mary's parents attend the Twins 2nd Birthday party? It is really not that far from France to Denmark for such an important birthday celebration.

I thought they lived part of the time in France as well. Hello or one of the magazines like Billed Bladet did an article with pictures of JD and Susan Moody showing an old rustic farm house they bought. I get the impression they spend there time between London, Denmark, France and Australia.

I looked it up after posting, and only found one photo. It was Billed Bladet who wrote the article in 2010 (I think) of John and Susan Donaldson at their new French home somewhere near Cahors. At least that is what they intimated. Anna Johannsen wrote the article. The photo is of the couple walking in their local village near where they bought the house. It is drivning me crazy not being able to find the rest of the photos. But when I find them I will post.

That's right, Tarlita.

In BB #22, 2010, there was an interview with the Donaldsons from France, where they now live.
I understand they regularly visit their children in Australia and DK.

I was wondering if the four, with such long names, have nicknames.

I read (most likely here at some point), that Mary has been heard calling the older two "Chris" and "Bella." For an English speaking person, those nicknames are the obvious choice. Would they be the same in Danish?

As for the names Vincent and Josephine, an English speaker would nickname Vincent "Vinny" or "Vince," while Josephine would be "Josie," (a very pretty name for a little girl).

Anyone know if the twins have nicknames, or what a Danish nickname would be for either of those names.

Nicknames aren't as normal in Denmark as they seem to be in many English speaking countries, but "Bella" would be the most normal nickname for Isabella here too.

I don't recall ever hearing Mary shortening Christian's name, but she might have. Most people I know by that name are simply called Christian, with the occasional "Chrisser" or "Krelle". The first one is probably the most normal one. I'm sure some are called Chris too, but not anyone I've ever met.

As for Josephine, the two most normal nicknames are "Jose" and "Fine". I'm not good at writing phonetics, but "Jose" would be pronounced something like "Yosé" and "Fine" would be near "Pheena" for English speakers. It's just the name split in half, so try and listen to Mary pronouncing the name at the christening.

As for Vincent, I've never heard a nickname for that name. Neither "Vinny" nor "Vince" would be a natural nickname for a Dane. Unless he gets his own personal nickname by family or friends, like Frederik got "Pingo" in the army, I think he'll simply be called Vincent.

I hope that helps
