No, La, Non.

Parenting children who have the potential to become trilingual makes for some really funny moments.

Like this one.

Liam: La! I don't want to do that.

Liam's Momma: Liam, did you say La? Liam, we don't say "No" to Mommy and Daddy. We don't say "No", "La", or "Non". Let's obey and do what Mommy and Daddy ask.

Liam: Yes Ma'am.

After this conversation Corey and I just looked at each other and laughed. I'm pretty sure that isn't a standard conversation that happens in American with a parent and their three year old son.

Look who is TWO!

Sweet, happy Norah turned TWO on Friday! We really can't believe how fast she is growing up. She's such a sweet, silly, little girl that is full of so much JOY!

Daddy and Big Bro were happy to help to blow out those two candles!

Norah has not stopped wearing her new necklaces! (She must take after her two aunts!)

Who can resist a cupcake with sprinkles on top?

Thanks for the cupcake!

Grandma Nancy mailed us all the makings for a super fun, girly Tinkerbell party!

How we spent Thanksgiving.

We threw a party for a lot of friends here and it was so much fun. There were 33 of us total and it was nice to share a little American food and culture with all of them. It was also nice to be the "teachers" for a change instead of the "learners" and to treat our friends to a really nice traditional meal. After the meal, I think they were all sitting around wondering where the Moroccan mint tea was but we didn't serve any. Haha.

Corey and a good friend. His son turned 1 the day before Norah turned 2 last week.

Sharing cake together!
