This picture is not related to the post but I love it!
I love how Jack looks right before he leaves to school. For a brief moment he is clean, smells yummy, and is so happy!

Kid Updates
Jack is stilling loving school and I am sure he has a little crush on his teacher! He loves to sing and dance and still talks about Dinosaurs all day long. His favorite place is the mall {I think it has something to do with the cheap toys we buy him every time we go} and he loves when we pick him up in a tuk tuk {I post a picture of one later}. He loves going to church and nursery and calls the little girl in his class Coco. Jacks favorite food is rice...thank goodness for that, but he would still rather live on a liquid diet. He has decided to call me Rachael 80% of the time and he is the nicest big brother a sister could ask for!

Jane is so dang funny! She makes us laugh all day long. She is finally crawling but would much rather cruise in her walker. She knows exactly what she wants and is very determined to get it. Boy this girl has got a temper she shakes she gets so mad. She loves playing patty cake, saying no {shaking her head}, waving, Elmo, her blankie, and her big brother. She is getting her 9th and 10th tooth {her first molars} and lets just say...not fun! She is saying moma, dada, and I pretty sure a few Cambodian words!?! She is such a good eater and will eat anything I am eating but if she is finished watch out because she loves to spit it right back at you. Her smile can brighten up any room and lucky for us she smiles all the time!

Pool Time

Ahh the pool...
The is something very satisfying about taking a dip in our pool while others are shoveling there driveways!!! ;)
{Just one of the perks of our tropical weather.}

This girl is a hoot she goes crazy in the water

The kids absolutely LOVE the water and would go swimming all day everyday if they could.

{Our little frog friend join us for a swim.}



These two kiddos make me laugh all day long!


Dinos & Kittens

Halloween is less then popular here in Cambodia so it was up to me to be creative and keep this fun little holiday alive.

We substituted a creepy and cold fall night moon with a creepy and hot day sun.Jack was a Dinosaur {of course} and I used eye shadow and eye liner to make the look.
He really loved his sharp teeth!
Jack liked the green effect I put on this picture. He thought he REALLY looked like a Dino!
So funny
I LOVE this picture Dan got of Jack looking at himself.
He thinks he looks pretty scary!
Doing his best Dino pose!
My cute little Kitty!
Got to love those cheeks!

I just LOVE this little girl!
She looks pretty stinkin cute with eye liner all over her cheeks!
It was a challenge to try and find a proper Halloween menu but I think in the end it all came together. I made a Potatoe soup, fruit salad, a ghost PB and Honey sandwich, rolls, and a plate full of Halloween cookies, chocolate, and gummy bears.
Jack was having a hard time concentrating on his food with this plate of yummies! I figured we could splurge a little since back in the states he would have eaten a pound of candy.
Our little homemade Halloween was actually a lot of fun! I do miss this time of year back in the states but we are having fun creating new and interesting traditions!
Hope everyone had a great Halloween!

Water Festival

Jack's school had a party that celebrated WATER FESTIVAL a big celebration here were people from all over the country {they say over a million} come to the city to watch and participate in boat races.
The party was really fun and Jack had a blast playing with all the water games they had set up for the kids. Now we have a week off for the holiday and I think Jack is going to go through some serious withdrawls...he LOVES school!

{Pure bliss}
Having fun spraying Dad with the water bottle.
One of the teachers showing him how to play a game.
He quickly got the hang of it and was off to win the race!
can't get too much happier then this...

Gosh he really loves water bottles! Talk about cheap entertainment!

I LOVE my Jack!
