Kendra, I got your card for Thanksgiving! Thank you!
Nicci, just realized I didn't welcome Jesse into this world on my blog - WELCOME JESSE! Congratulations mom and dad, too! Hope all is going well! Don't worry about the blankie - I tried to crochet one for Rémi when he was a baby - finished all but one row before he was born, had no time to finish after he was born and now, have no idea what pattern I used so I still can't finish it!
So this weekend I had my yoga thing - sucked... Way too slow paced for me, people were either wierd (one tried to convert me to taoism) or stupid (the one who organzed it is a babakar khane (that's the teacher who was there) worshipper.) She actually tours around France whenever possible to follow him. You'd think he was Christ the way she was carrying on about him during lunch. Oh well...now i know - I'll stick with my living room dvd instructors! :)
Remi and Alex and I put up our charlie brown tree. At the time i bought decorations, they had literally no choice in this stupid country! Now they have lots of pretty things but Christophe is like "you already have decorations - no need to go buy anymore". add to that the bazillion things the kids create for the tree and the piddly fake tree that's been through 9 Christmasses and doesn't want to go through many more... well...it's pathetic. I tried to limit the damage - Rémi got 1/3 of the tree, Alex 1/3 and me 1/3 (the front third of course ;) ). I got some new ornaments on sale from a shop that's closing down. and the worst things (for example the blue garland) are special decorations just for the kids room (am i not just the nicest mommy ;) ) so without further ado -
