We woke up this morning at 3 am to the lovely sound of the fire alarm! Hearts pounding we packed up our children (it was freezing rain outside) and called 911. They assured us a firetruck was already en route. Mikaylah greeted the French speaking firemen with a perky 'HI I had a good nap!' they smiled politely and patted her head as they made their way up stairs to check out the building. Thankfully there was no fire! Just after the firemen left and we got our children back in bed the power went out for a second and the fire alarm went off again. The firetruck turned around and came back to check us out again. This time I took the camera and got a photo.

What a difference between the first alarm when we assumed our lives were in danger and the second alarm when we assumed that the loss of electricity triggered the alarm. Then the third, fourth and fifth alarms were just agravating because we couldn't sleep!
The power went out the last time five hours ago! So we are trusting the worst is over. Hopefully we will all sleep through the night like Jayson! He is five months old today! Time is scooting by!

Joyeuses Pâques... Happy Easter!

The French word for Easter is 'pâques' the same word for passover. Much more accurate than our english pagan word 'easter'. Mikaylah wore her Pâques chapeau that we bought her last year that she was not interested in last year.
Here are the kiddos in their Easter best,

Mikaylah sans(without) bonnet because she couldn't look up into the camera with it on! Enjoy! Mikaylah is three now and Jayson is almost five months, next week he will be five months old!
