Last weekend, I went on the Polar Express Train at the Strausburg Railroad. I met my granny and grandpa there and off we went. The train took us to the North Pole and back. Santa walked around and handed out a toy and there were some carolers and musicians playing holiday songs. It was nice to see Santa and share a photo but I was more in love with the conductor!
sorry for the delay...
Hanukkah came early this year! We celebrated by making latkes with Bubbe, going to Hanukkah Wonderland with Parker and Macie, and I had a party at school. We sang lots of Hanukkah songs and did dances and then had latkes and doughnuts.
I also have become a master at driedel and learned some Hebrew along the way. My dad calls me the "jew in training"!

Last week my school had a Thanksgiving feast. We sang songs, had all sorts of good food like cupcakes, cookies, muffins, apple cider and I think I saw a vegetable in there! I got to show mommy the turkey center piece I made her as well as my place mat and feather hat.
I am thankful that my mommy could be there and she tells me everyday she is thankful for me!
I know my mom is a little behind but she was busy the past 4 weeks...
Halloween was so much fun this year. I went to Josephs school for a parade and party, I went to Bubbe and Pop Pops neighborhood parade, I went to Trick a more on Sycamore in Newtown, then the Ladermans annual Boo Brunch and lastly trick or treat with some friends. The UPS man sure got around!

Last week, my parents took me to see my favorite monkey, Curious George, live on stage! In the musical George wanted to help his friend the chef win the great meatball contest. George flew to Rome and entered the meatballs and the chef won! I love that monkey!

Last weekend we kicked off our new family favorite, pinktober! The weekend started with daddy riding 80 miles for YSC. From there mommy headed off to The Butterfly ball and finally we walked with some of our favorite friends and family in the race for the cure!

On Monday, I started preschool. I started off sad that a school bus was not picking me up! I go to school three mornings a week. After my initial scream for my mommy, i was just fine. Lots of my friends are in my class. We had a great time making Rosh Hashana cards and for snack we had apples and honey.
The most exciting part of all is wearing a back pack.

A few weeks ago I went with Bubbe, Pop and Mommy to see cousin Rebecca graduate Smith College in Northampton, Mass. While there, I went to the Eric Carle Museum. It had a library where we read books and did puzzles, an art room where I got to paint with Pop and a beautiful gallery of illustrations.
On the way to pick daddy up from the train, we stopped at The Dr. Seuss Memorial Sculpture Garden in Springfield, Mass. They had about 6 gigantic sculptures based on the different Dr. Seuss books.
We also went to Rebecca's graduation and I finally got to meet my Uncle Tom and cousin Jeff. I had so much fun with them both.
From there we went to Boston for a few days. We walked around Newbury Street, Little Italy, Fanueil Hall on the first day. The second day it rained so we went to the New England Aquarium where I got to touch all sorts of slimy ocean dwellers. We had dinner in Copley Square and our last day we stopped in Cambridge so I could get something at the Curious George book store.
It was a great trip. Here are some pics. I will post the link to the whole album.

We love something to celebrate! The other day was our annual half birthday celebration! Several of Hunters friends came over for a beach party! Sadly, the weather did not cooperate but the kids still had a great time. We have octopus hummus, fruit flowers, sail boat sandwiches, beach cupcakes and sand pudding! It was a great day with great friends!
