Hope you have a great and healthy holiday season … See below, our scenes from a little family round up that kept Chanukah, Christmas, family and fun in mind.   Stay warm – and we hope to see you in the exciting next new year and new decade!

Somehow I don’t mind the cold as much if I’m somewhere as gorgeously scenic as Great Barrginton, Mass.  A friend had her lovely, newly renovated home to offer to us (thanks, Lorena!) so we seized the opportunity to get some much needed downtime just the four of us, in nature.  I love how Zoe connects so well to animals and it’s not at all surprising that Woody (the neighbor’s pony) really loved Zoe.   And – as always – Ezra managed to find a jazz band in town where he just stepped in and jammed with them.  Check him out drumming at this local consignment shop: click here.

Zoe’s sweet little school had a “bake off” to end all bake offs. Judges included our District Council Member Danny Dromm and others who are running for local office – as well as MC’d by students’ parents and even including some talented dads in a band!  The sweets really ranged from Halloween to Thanksgiving to Holiday treats.  And there were about 32 different desserts to test!  I don’t know how the judges fit it all in..

Being on Arthur Ave is like taking a step back in time to when I lived in a predominantly Italian American neighborhood.   Shops stuffed with cannoli shells – ready to be filled with fresh cream.   Bakeries making fresh bread around the clock, cold cuts and marinated artichokes.   We ate in a restaurant that had old wood paneling on the walls and painted scenes of Venice, and men donning pinky rings while eating a four course meal at noon.  The smells and sights always take me back… and not surprisingly, all this Christmas decor was pulled out days before Thanksgiving – no holding back.  There is a little peek into the Spanish speaking population there… in the cigar making stand and the  ‘ferreteria’ (Spanish for hardware store):
