Clara made Hamentaschen for Purim today with her grandma (who was visiting for the weekend)

It was fun looking back at last year’s Purim photos of Clara eating hamentaschen back then!

Hosted a big Thanksgiving for 13 (5 family houseguests plus 5 friends and the three of us) at our new house.

Had a great time cooking, eating, watching TV, playing poker and generally just hanging around playing and eating some more.

Clara’s 3rd Halloween — and she definitely got the concept this year (she even practiced trick-or-treating on our door yesterday). We went to the big downtown safe trick-or-treat extravaganza/mob scene and then tried out the other houses on our new street — only one of which had even bought any candy since apparently no one ever comes trick-or-treating there (one of the others gave us a persimmon, and the third with people home gave us a full-size candy bar out of their freezer.) Then we went up to Lisa’s (and probably was one of their only trick-or-treaters for the night there too.) Last weekend Clara went to a Halloween party and yesterday was the parade at daycare and a party at the Little Gym, so I think she definitely has had a full Halloween experience.

Here’s our little construction family — appropriate, we thought, after all the house renovations we’ve been doing!

Clara seemed to enjoy the hamentaschen we made and wore the bunny ears her Safta sent her for about 2 seconds.  Next year she should be ready for a real Purim carnival and costumes and everything.

I finally managed to post the video from the Halloween Parade at Clara’s daycare that they had on Friday!  She was at the very front, riding in the buggy with three of her friends:
