• Le Palais des glaces : Pas facile de trouver son chemin dans le palais mouvementé des bonhommes de neiges 
• Les Voitures du Père Noël : Pour les pilotes en herbes
• Les Chaises volantes : Un voyage proche des étoiles
• Les Trampos élastiques : Un indémodable pour sauter de joie parce que c’est Noël

November - catching up after computer crash

Alex, Max, and Vincent

pictures
Alex's soccer game Saturday November 8 at the local stadium (also where he practices every Wednesday).

pictures
Park, food, school, day off school for Armistice Day we spent in Paris in the Marais (the reopened Picasso Museum was mobbed so we didn't wait), and Parc Monceau.

pictures
School, soccer practice, Marche Noel down the Champs-Elysees (even though it was 60 degrees), meal at a bisto on Boulevard Haussmann.

pictures
Vincent art projects at school, and bringing "Max le bebe" home for the weekend from his school. Vincent had to take care of Max, get him dressed, and then tell the story of his weekend when he went back to school on Monday.

November

It's school picture time...more pictures to come, eventually.  Our home computer gave up the ghost so we had to buy a new one.  Ah, technology.  We spent November enjoying some fabulous weather before it turned cold.
