Another first week of school is starting, and these 2 look happy in the photos but are really having a hard time with getting back to the grind.  We had such a great summer of lying about in the heat and reading, or jumping into city pools, tending the garden and eating from the garden.  Summer is just too dang short really – if I could home school them I would.  They are just that enjoyable to be around.

This is NOT a paid ad — but just a full admission that my girl (and her cousin Stella) are pretty nuts about American Girl Dolls.  When cousins Stella and Alison came to town there was no denying that a trip to the AGD Cafe was in order, and we all had a lovely time (including the dolls!)  Alison and I have to admit that the food was pretty yummy and having the dolls seated at the table – well that just made Zoe’s day. Extra special thanks to Stella and Alison for the cafe date and to cousin Eve for the American Girl Doll that Zoe loves to tote around!

Zoe turned 6 back in January and I was able to capture her excitement in a little movie clip, as well as her new enthusiasm for dancing (for hours!) to klezmer music, and Ezra’s progress on the drums! Enjoy..

I’m always at a bit of a loss with what to do on Christmas Day. This year I did something I was always curious about: we explored Manhattan while everyone else was in unwrapping gifts. As I had hoped, the tourist crowds were minimal and we could see the windows and lights on Fifth Avenue without having to struggle to see over other heads!
We then checked out the huge tree at The New York Palace Hotel before heading downtown for lunch. Best of all we got to do another holiday mitzvah – while strolling downtown we ran into a family who were feeding the homeless community in Tompkins Square Park, and Ezra wanted to jump in and help! He and my husband handed out food before we headed home for the night. I think we now have a new tradition for December 25.









and heading downtown to the East Village we found this cool 3D graffiti:

Seriously this girl can’t lose –

-Hello Kitty socks? check
-Frida Khalo headband? check
-stripy top to tie it all together? check

My daughter has become my stylist, and my style inspiration. She literally grimaces and calls me out when I don’t dress up to her standards. She will ask to get into my closet and pick my outfit out for me for the day – and encourages that I wear ‘clip clop shoes’ (heels) more often. ‘More color mamma’ or ‘get something with flowers’ is what she most often will advise me – and then jewelry. She rolls her eyes at my choices for small, modest jewelry and will insist I wear the big, bright (pink) pieces that she’s made for me at school. You are a lovely force to recon with little girl, and you really have inspired me to use more flair when I dress! I love my little fashionista.

(the only small jewelry she will tolerate is this tiny jingle-bell on a string that she made here:)
