With teachers from Colombia and India, Zoe was really struggling to pin down ONE ethnicity that may represent herself or our family. We are kind of a hodge-podge of ethnicities – but since Purim happened so recently, Zoe really wanted to make hamentashen and carry an Israeli flag around during her ‘Rainbow Song’ for International Day. She belted out her song and ate everything that the other kids brought in – bean cakes from China, Irish soda bread and empanadas to name just a few!

Have you ever had Harney & Sons Tea? My husband has become quite the sommelier of tea these days… moving away from coffee and getting very particular about his teas. They are really yummy – and blends with blueberry and pumpkin were great to sample on a cold day. The kids like sampling the caffeine free varieties. What are YOU drinking while it’s cold outside?

On Christmas day we stayed indoors for the most part because that warm spell was broken by the coldest snap ever! Our friends invited us to their house for a little dinner, and because Lea and Mia’s mom is from Germany we felt a little bit of German Christmas in the air. The exception of course was the ‘Simon’ game under the tree – that was a piece of my own past!

In the South End of Boston there’s a cute little bakery that makes the yummiest little sugary scones and muffins… it’s going to be my new go-to breakfast joint when I’m back in Massachusetts!

Remember our hot chocolate outing from last year? Well we were out and about again in Soho and came across our favorite fancy hot chocolate shop, Marie Belle. Their hot chocolate is literally like drinking a chocolate bar that’s been melted down into a fancy tea cup. The kids love it and I love sitting under the chandeliers and pretending we are in Paris! Check out their Blue Box collection here – I can stare at these illustrations on chocolates all day.

We are happy to be back in NYC with its crazy shops (the key store in the West Village covered in keys), streets lined with Christmas trees for sale, holiday windows, good food (stopped at Saigon for Vietnamese fair) and a play at NYU featuring the Dinosaur Train crew!

One of the great advantages of Ezra being in a dual language program is that we get to meet people from countries where mostly Spanish is spoken. Natalia’s family always throws a warm, fun birthday with a hand made piñata and amazing food! It goes on for hours and is a mostly Spanish-speaking affair (which flexes our language skills, or miming skills – or a little of both.) Now Zoe is insisting on a ‘payaso‘ and Lolaloopsy piñata for her big day!

Remember we did this post about our creative friends in Astoria Queens and their adorable Lyla Tov monsters? (We’ve got a button of little monsters in our widgets that you can click on.) Well.. we got a chance to see them again – at a party thanking everyone for their recent kickstarter success! Momma Erin is so creative.. she transformed the basement level of a synagogue into a carnival and Lyla Tov monster fiesta. Congrats to the Black family on their continued monster-making success!

Remember we ran into Smorgasburg here and here? The Smorgasburg trend is spreading … and we are glad it is! We gorged on chicken and waffles (Uncle Anthony’s idea) – some fish and chips for the kids, steak sandwiches and shrimp spring rolls. Washed it all down with mango lemonade – yum! – and then on to more scooting. We are hoping that by showing them all this good food, they’ll crave some more and will come back again and visit.
