Earthquake worries

Yesterday in church, one of the speakers mentioned the horrible earthquake that had happened in Haiti and then mentioned the 1989 California earthquake. T heard "the terrible earthquake in California" and then not so quietly said, "What! An Earthquake in California!" She was worried that perhaps Grandpa and Grandma, Aunts, Uncles and cousins might be in trouble. We reassured her that you were all fine. Just know that she was quite concerned about all of you.

Good vs Evil

We are really big into spies, spy gadgets, and anything undercover. Last night for a family movie we were watching a spy movie and E told us all that when she grows up she wants to be a spy. T then says very seriously, "I hope you not going to be an evil one."

On a side note--M says she's going to be a princess when she grows up.

It's all about being British

On New Years Eve we celebrated with the Brazilians so that everyone could go to bed early. We tooted horns, shook maracas, lighted fireworks and shouted Happy New Year. We then had treats and sparkling cider where I thought it would be fun to go around the circle and have everyone complete the thought, "Here's to a (blank) New Year!" E wanted a wonderful and healthy New Year. M wanted a Princess New Year and on T's turn she shouted out British! I'm not sure what that means yet. Maybe as the new year progresses we can figure it out so here's to a British New Year! May you have a wonderful time full of princesses!
