Happy Thanksgiving!

It’s been a few years since we’ve had a proper Thanksgiving. Unlike when we lived in London, it is very hard to track down a turkey apart from at Christmas. But our nanny said that she’d always wanted to try a traditional Thanksgiving dinner, so Papa thought that he would make the effort to create a Thanksgiving dinner with all the trimmings. On something of a ‘wild goose chase,’ Papa finally tracked down a frozen turkey in Germany. With the star attraction secured, the rest fell easily into place.

We had turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, broccoli, creamed corn, homemade cranberry sauce, and of course gravy. And something that is forbidden on every other day of the year in France: Californian wines.

One of Juliette’s favorite things to do is to watch Dad cook

Through no design of our own, Juliette has turned out to be a girly girl from head-to-toe. Barbie. Princesses. Pink, pink, pink.

And now, she’s started dance lessons. She LOVES dance lessons. Every Wednesday, she gets to get dressed up and do her thing.

Le Vaisseau

The school holidays seemed like a perfect opportunity to meet up with Juliette’s godmother for a visit to Le Vaisseau, a childrens’ science museum in Strasbourg. The kids had a great time and definitely someplace we’ll go for a repeat visit!
