Hello Chloe and Family....

Remember our beautiful exchange student Chloe?  Well she and her family came to visit us for a few days last week on their Florida vacation.  It was wonderful to see her and meet her family.  Her Mother Valerie, Father Christopher and her brother Victor.  Her Aunt Murielle and Uncle Dennis along with her cousin Charlotte.  We had such a nice time with some shopping, some beach days, and lots of great conversation as we got to know each other.  Dave and I decided we would really like to learn some french for the next time they come or we manage to get over there for a visit.  We are so jealous that they all speak English so well and we don't know a lick of French.  Murielle and Dennis are not quite as fluent as Chloe's parents but they really tried hard.  We had lots of laughs over some of their mishaps.  They shared that they were having a conversation with a store clerk one day and Dennis and Murielle told the girl that in France they owned a condom manufacturing company when what they really meant to say was a CANDLE company.  LOL  They said the look on the girl's face was priceless.  One evening they made us a delicious French meal along with crepes for dessert.  It was delicious.  I am so thankful that Natalie had the opportunity through her school French class to host an exchange student and we had the pleasure of getting to know her and her family.  It really is "a small world after all."

Chloe showing the girls how to make the crepes.

Having a little "girl time"  poor Victor he patiently played a video game on his Ipod waiting for them to  finish.

Victor fell in love with our dog Jesse and she with him.   :)

Love this one of the kids just being kids.  Natalie adding a little silly.
