Sister's Fart Pie

Hudson's first time apple picking!!! It was the perfect, crisp Fall day...warm in the sun and cool in the shade. Hudson had been worried when I first mentioned that we were going to go apple picking "I can't reach up the trees!" he exclaimed. But he did!!!

** And "Sister's Fart Pie" is the english translation for the "Tarte aux Pets de Soeurs" that we bought at the orchard. Not surprisingly, it was the butt of many of Victor and Edouard's jokes on the drive back home. Susan corrected us by saying that the more accurate translation is "Nun's Fart Pie". Either way, it made us laugh. And in case anyone was is grotesquely yummy...exactly like eating a brick of maple syrup.
*** Hudson rode a real pony for 1.5 seconds. He got on, decided that it was not a good idea, and couldn't get off fast enough. The pony guy had to give me back my money.
**** Sue-Poo actually waited in line for an HOUR to buy us "apple donuts". An hour. I'm not exaggerating. They were heavenly.

Pillow Talk

I kissed Hudson goodnight and told him I loved him. He told me he loved me too. I asked him "why?"...only because he asks me "why?" for EVERYTHING these days. He thought about it for a second, then answered: "Because you play with me, you read me books, you go poo-poo with me" (clarification: I patiently stay with him for what seems like hours while he sits on the potty - and so far we haven't had any luck with anything coming out).

It was the sweetest thing anyone has ever said to me.

Abra Cadabra!

Pretty tricky, eh?

Some of our oldest family friends came for a visit yesterday. We all got a chance to snuggle baby Ethan (10 months). He particularly loved my dad...kept smiling and laughing whenever he looked in his direction. It was such a nice afternoon.

Me looking like a tub-o-lard.

Mrs. Kim and her pride and joy.

Ethan and Hadaboji (I can't believe how much Ethan looks like his mama)

My mom and her surrogate daughters.

And for Rob who has been waiting for an update on his son:

It really was an Iced Tea. And I know it's not the healthiest lunch, but it was all Baby Khang Khang's idea. Note: "Baby Khang Khang" is the name Hudson has given the baby. I keep telling Hudson I don't like the name, but he INSISTS that is the baby's name. And he also insists that the baby is a BOY. We'll see...
