Holidays are getting more and more fun the older Lily gets! Even though she is still too young to get super excited about holidays at least now she can actively participate.

This year for Halloween Lily got to carve a pumpkin and go trick-or-treating with friends. She even got to eat a little bit of chocolate!

On Halloween Eve we carved Lily's first pumpkin. She was way more interested in tasting it than helping out.

On Halloween night went over to the Stanley home to meet up with our baby friends and ride in the neighborhood parade. The babies went as the three blind mice but the only one who was really cooperative was Parker! The girls were a mess, of course!

We loaded up the wagon with babies and beer and headed to the parade with our trio of rodents to pass out candy to the neighborhood kids. Parker and Hannah were to young to enjoy any candy this year but Lily had the best day ever just chewing on a mini Hershey bar! It was pretty impossible to get a picture where everyone was happy or even looking at the camera.

6 Days, 4 Countries, 3 Continents

Hi friends and family! It has been over a year since the last time I blogged but we have some huge changes coming up so I figured it was time to start up again to keep everyone updated!

Danny and I just got back from a whirlwind trip that took us to 4 countries in 3continents in just 6 days  to decide if we will be moving our family to Morocco.

We talked to doctors, checked out grocery stores, Danny's office, clothing stores, rode a camel and looked at more villas than I can remember. We ate delicious food and were thoroughly confused by all the languages being spoken around us but we found a house we love and come January 2014 the Tsukaharas will be moving to Agadir, Morocco for 2 years!

While we are really sad to leave our life here in Texas, we are so excited about this new adventure and all the amazing things we will get to see and do.

While Danny and I were in Morocco last week I got to cross one thing off of my my bucket list... riding a camel on the beach!

And just because I know Lily is really the star of the show around here, here is a recent picture of her at the Dallas Arboretum.
