Va te faire cuire un oeuf

That's a French expression, meaning, "Buzz off."

But now we can say it to Noah, and he will do it. He learned how to fry eggs, and he will be more than happy to oblige if anyone wants one! Or even if no one wants one!

Winter Wonderland

We visited our lovely hairdresser, Peggy, for our annual haircuts, and she gave us tickets to the Winter Wonderland set up in Tilles Park. It was chilly, but fun!

Not All Vacation

Some of us were hard at work over vacation. Benjamin, in 6th grade, had a LOT of work to catch up on. And Frédéric had to study for his FAA flight dispatcher test.

Noah's Itinerary

Noah was our trip planner. This is what he had on his list for after we left the farm:

Stop = Taco Bell. (Priorities.)
Grandad Grandma Normal. (as opposed to Crowe or Lundy.)
Grandad Grandma Lundy.
Marc Roof. (Uncle Mark & Aunt Ruth)
Aéroport. (back home, sniff.)

I guess that about covers it!

The Farm

We started out our US trip with a few days at the farm in Alabama, so we could spend some time with my grandparents. We had a great time metal-detecting, gathering eggs, driving the buggy, fishing, and visiting with family.

The boys found all sorts of treasures in the fields, like rusty hinges and pieces of chains, and stove covers.

We caught enough fish for dinner, though Benjamin was upset that we were going to eat them rather than release them.

Great-grandparents and great-grandkids: priceless.
