2 MAJOR Milestones at the loudamericans household yesterday.... Kay = braces - She's hanging in there but the 1st few days have been really sore. This is going to be a long process. They can only put braces on adult teeth so as she loses teeth and the new ones grow in, they'll add braces. Sort of a painful add a pearl necklace. Lots and lots of ice cream for her so far this week:) Tom is OFFICIALLY a Chef - please call him 'Chef' from now on - as in "yes - Chef" :) He has worked so hard over the last 18 months and is so incredibly passionate about food. Its so fun to see him excel in his passion. To celebrate (show off?:)) he made dinner for my team this weekend. It was crazy good. Duck Terrian Chicken galantine, Spanish paella, beef wellington, momofuko brussel sprouts, roast radishes, candied fennel and roast parsnip salad and pavlova for dessert (not to mention wine, champagne and pizza for the kids:) Really an incredible night and great way to ring in 2014 and celebrate all the hard work and accomplishments of 2013. THANK YOU Tom!! Super duper proud of both of them:) Love you both - you are amazing people and we are so lucky to have you in our lives
