I’m not necessarily ready for cooler weather but clearly Zoe is: she likes to ice skate with her classmate Lily lately.  Since Lily takes skating lessons, I just let her tie on Zoe’s skates and teach her the ropes – and I basically stand around waiting to be useful .

We are already seeing signs of “Halloween night preparation” in our ‘hood – and I found this crazy old pix of me and my brothers in our home-made costumes in the ’70s.  I wonder if this will inspire my own kids’ ideas for costumes this year?

and we are winding down December with the last of gingerbread-house making at school, visits to see family in Boston (note the New England tree with lobster, fisherman, and lighthouse ornaments) and a trip to Brooklyn where Industry City had a great ‘Mexican Christmas’ party and display of blinky snowmen. I for one am looking forward to a quieter winter break before New Year’s Eve…

Our friends in Astoria did up their house, with a movie projected on a nearby building and everything! I guess we have to step up our game next year, now that we have a home to decorate:

This is what autumn looks like in our ‘hood. Zoe is loving the colors but I wish she would keep her coat on…although it’s been unseasonably warm so I choose my battles for now! Enjoy the weekend.
