We made a little jaunt down to Luxembourg the other day, Luxembourg City that is. Beautiful! Cold. But, beautiful!

 It was sprinkling a little (a very little) so A HAD to have her umbrella!
 Give my 2 year old a plastic cup? What, are you crazy? Of course I'll give her a glass filled to the brim! Europeans.

 Okay, this sign cracked me up!
 Here's a close up!
 What could they be staring at? (notice the fashion- oh yeah, that's red pants with sparkly pink shoes! I love little girls.)
 "MAMA LOOK! A HORSE! and a rider, and a HORSE!"

 I just love the iron work on this fence!
 Okay, this is the far left of the palace- the duke of something? Showing my political ignorance here ;)
 This is the middle/upper area.
 And the far right (including the guard who belongs to the Dept. of Funny Walks.)
 I love European fountains, they are beautiful and wacky!
 This the Nepalese Embassy. Love that door.
 This one takes a little explanation. The top photo is showing something that looks like a churro, but it's a heating element so your cheese is melting fresh for you right there. omgoodness. I WILL be back sans darlings for that.
 Any of you who know my oldest know the exclamation that came with this one! UNICORN!!!!
 Not sure what the significance of the unicorn is, but cool none-the-less.
 I had to try this! It's fried chicken sushi! seriously! I am a land lover, gastronomically speaking, and there for was prepared to eat rice and miso, but this I had to try! Fried chicken, avocado and mayo. Yum! Can't recommend the place overall though, so it's not getting a mention. 
Big A trying desperately to use chopsticks on edamame. Little a has already given up as the hunger grew!

It was a lovely trip! I'm not sure I'd call it a kid's city, though it's entirely possible I just missed a bunch of things. But I would love to go back! (And in fantasy land, go back with 2000 euros so I could buy an outfit or two. Lovely fashion- insane, crazy, bonkers prices. Apparently that city is loaded!)

September photo catch up!

Here's the best of September's photos...
Lil' A feeding bread dough to Big A

We have this walnut tree....

With eleventy billion walnuts...

And this was the beginning when J wanted to do it "right" and wash and dry them...

The local school requires all this gear be on hand and it's so reflective!


Just plain cute.

Hard at work...

More of the bread dough photos...

We made so much dough! But this was all that was left after the "testing to make sure it's good"

I don't know what it is about them in their backpacks, but it just kills me!

This is one of my favorites!


A took this photo, she's getting pretty good!

She took this one, too. We're having some surprisingly educational moments with the iPhone.

This is in her classroom at school- we thought we'd take some pictures of her as she grows there.

Makin' her work! You want fresh OJ? You make it! ;)

My kids would no kidding scrub veggies all day. Crack me up.

Waiting for our class field trip to start.

On our walk with the class.

The rest of the class is working on a game about 5 feet away, A wants to play with the acorns to help out the squirrels.

This is what I found when I came to  pick them up from school!

Hard at work coloring!

She wanted to try the bike again! Hooray! This time she was ready; it was worth the wait.
