Benjamin's Birthday!

It is hard to believe that this kid just turned 9! He wanted a birthday flan instead of a birthday cake this year. He invited his friend Léa to go watch the Paddington movie with us for his birthday, and I took them out to McDonald's afterwards.

We did his birthday flan a different day, and he just got one big present - but he loved it!

Village Christmas

As it does every year, Puiseux had a Christmas party for the kids in December. They had a magician come put on a show first, and then the Père Noël showed up with the presents. Benjamin was very pleased with a Nerf gun, and Noah with a Spiderman game.

His own style

Noah has always had his own style... his wanted me to crochet him a scarf,  so I did, with his yarn and the colors and order he chose.

Then he wanted me to crochet him a hat, so I did that too... again with his color choice. I tried to steer him towards colors from the scarf, but he insisted this is what he wanted...

Maybe clashing is a thing and I'm just not in tune with the times. At any rate, he is very sure of his sense of style.

Chocolate Eclairs

Noah tried his hand at chocolate éclairs recently. Don't be overly impressed, though, he deigned to use a mix this time! They turned out great.

Christmas Painters

We decorated for Christmas a few days after we arrived home. I got out the glass paints I found at the "random stuff store" this summer, and let the boys decorate the windows.

Real little artists.  And the best part - it will (more or less easily) peel off when Christmas is over.
