This is my girl as Tom Turkey for her Thanksgiving skit presented to her French classmates (see the pilgrim next to her?). With Thanksgiving around the corner, I thought this photo is a fun reminder of what we can be thankful for: love and friendship.
Happy Thanksgiving from France in advance!
ps: with the pillow tied to the back instead of the front, we have the Hunchback of the Notre Dame of Paris...voila our Halloween costume for next year done! Xoxo
I wish Thanksgiving was celebrated in Japan...but it passes us by without so much as a gobble.
Still, love and friendship to all!

I was so caught up in it, I foolishly forgot to film it! It is a fun thing the Americans cobble together to explain Thanksgiving to the French...next Thursday we will bring pumpkin and pecan pies to offer to the French school...in the interests of opening horizons via the stomach! Xoxo

Adam Beck: Amy, western Japan, where we live, was spared, but the typhoon hit central and eastern Japan very hard. Thank you for thinking of us. I'm thinking of you and your family, along with everyone I met during my trip! (And I can picture you now, too!)

Mayken: Last night, I couldn't think of the ml word for puffin, and my daughter beat me to it, in a cute way: It's Papageitaucher (literally parrot diver) but she said Tauchpapagei (diving parrot).

Amy: It's a relief to hear you're all safe Adam Beck! Mayken, I loved that cute story and I love how your ml structures its words, it is always so much fun and interesting.
