Haute Couture

Frederick: Hello, Louisette.  How are you today?
Louisette: Ah, mon chéri!  In truth, I am feeling a bit wistful.
If I were in Paris now, zee chestnut trees would be in bloom.  >Le Sigh<

Frederick: Well, it might cheer you up to know that
a little bit of Paris has come to you in the mail.

Louisette: Mon dieu!  I have been expecting a parcel from ze city of lights. Where ees eet?
Frederick: Hmmm, Luke and Oliver had it.  I'm surprised they haven't given it to you yet.

Louisette: As you would say, good grief!

Oliver: Do you think it's really from Paris, France?
Luke: I suppose it could be Paris, Texas.  What do you suppose is inside?
Oliver: It says here 'Robes pour femmes ou filles.'
That's French for...something, I guess.

Luke: I think that means it's a robe for a fish.
Oliver: It couldn't be a bathrobe 'cause fish don't take baths.
Luke: But they could get cold.
Oliver: I don't like cold fish.

Louisette: Oh, give me zat, you fools!

Louisette: I 'ave been waiting for zis!
Lottie: Ees zat ze seeds we ordered?
Louisette: Certainly not!  Eet ees ze very latest fashion from Paris.

I have just finished reading the whole blog, it's been so much fun, I think I've been reading it for probably close to 6 months. It's better than any book I've read in years as it has kept my full attention many evenings. I cannot wait to see what's next. What an awesome assortment of whimsical kiddos living out their best lives!
