Our Hanukkah party brought out a lot of people! A party of 115 folks… And what an excellently fun and diverse group we are. I loved the mass candle lighting the most, and of course Zoe loved the face painting.

We made a long and crazy road trip to Rochester – where the weather was balmy enough for a day (or 2) to hang in the hot tub. Cousin soup! It was a weekend of hiking and playing in the woods, and of course AMAZING FOOD and performances. Zoe cried when we headed home because she already misses all her big cousins wanting to carry her everywhere!

Our fireplace is up and running, just in time for the holiday of light and warmth.
So instead of writing up a storm about all our goings on, packing up for a new move, watching the leaves change color … I’m going to post as many photos as I can and get back to working on that packing. So much packing. Meanwhile here are some pix from our High Holidays dinner out at the beach, and back at this lovely place where me and my husband were married. (thanks Loren Bevans for the last 2 pix!)

This creative momma had another baby! Beautiful little August came into the world August 2nd, and we were invited to their excellent home with the lounge in the garage —
Ezra was so moved by what the rabbi said during the service. At one point he looked at me with tears in his eyes and said “mommy I’m crying a little and I don’t know why – maybe ’cause the baby is so cute?”
I think he was responding to the rabbi’s request to have the two older brothers hold their new baby and promise that they will share their toys, teach him to be safe, etc. Zoe enjoyed riding a tricycle that looked like one that I USED in the 70s! Ok basically I took these photos because Zoe actually chose to wear something that wasn’t pink, for the first time in years!
It was a lovely time.
