All Saints

Camille goes to catholic school, so the children are not permitted to wear Halloween costumes to school. Instead they have an All Saint's Day parade. They choose a saint, find out 3 facts about their saint and dress up like that saint. This year we helped Camille choose St. Lucy. We think she looks great!

Sydney's Bat Mitvah Cake before the lighting ceremony.

The centeropieces were spectacular.

Loved the rainbow ice sculpture!
Tree-man and butterfly girl (can you see Tree-man's face?)
Camille loved the Butterfly girl (I thought she was a little creepy, lol!)
Camille and Roxanne. I haven't seen Roxanne in an age! She's modeling in NYC right now and I can totally see why... she's such a beautiful girl!
Roxanne, Syndney and Camille. Roxanne used to be Syd's babysitter.

All dressed up for the big event.

As you can see the photos are in reverse order, but it's too much trouble to right them on blogger, so they'll stay this way. Mazel Tov, Sydney! You did a great job! We're so proud of you!

So we're more than half way through October and my last post was at the end of September! Well, what can I say? Time flies when you're as busy as we are, I guess! Things are going well. Camille is really enjoying school and doing very, very well. I guess my fears about having a kindergartener in a first grade reading class are not to be realized as she seems to be excelling at reading. I was really concerned she was going to tank (I know, have a little faith Mommy!) Dance class is going well and the same kid who didn't want to take tap lessons last year absolutely loves them this year... she still loves her ballet too, but she also really enjoying the tap part of her class! Chinese school is also going well and she's got a special friend named Annika. Together they make it difficult for each other to pay attention :)

This weekend Camille and I are attending a very, very special Bat Mitzvah of the daughter of good friends of ours. It's the very first of it's kind for our local synagogue. The Jewish Community Voice printed a nice article called Dream Comes True. I would encourage you to look at it. It's a very special story. I will be sure to post some photos after the event.
