Thanksgiving Day 2007


Thanksgiving Day 2008



Today is one year after the Tragedy in Mumbai

Despite being completely heartbreaking, I find this very inspiring. These are photos of babies named for the Chabad couple who were killed in Mumbai last year.

May their memory be a blessing.

Changes at Big City Mom

Today I made a big change and updated my profile description from "Life in the big city with 2 kids, 1 husband and a few million other people" to "Life just outside the big city with 3 kids, 1 husband and a few thousand other people."
I'd love to keep pretending I am a Manhattanite, but with it being over a year of me out here in Westchester, I guess my days as a city girl are over. How exactly I became an SUV-driving, suburban living, stay-at-home sham mom of three, I'll never really know. At least I can be whomever I want in my online avatar!

Life of Aaron

My mom felt badly Aaron didn't get to go to the pumpkin patch so she sent me this picture with this email:
"i cropped pic of aaron so you can superimpose on pump patch and tell him he was there!"

Aaron's new pajamas

For those of you who have asked, "What does Aaron look in his new plaid pajamas?" Here is the answer.... adorable! And like an old man!

Molly at the pumpkin patch with her uncle a little before her first birthday...



... and five years later.

At the same age second child Kelly of course had to settle for pumpkin headgear instead of a trip to an actual pumpkin patch though she seems happy enough with the substitution:
And here she is just past her fourth birthday:




And that brings us to baby number three, Aaron. Like Kelly, he made no baby trip to the pumpkin patch, but we did bring him back a bitty pumpkin. He was delighted to be remembered.


We gave him his own baby gourd too.

R.I.P. John Allen Muhammad

"In its effort to race John Allen Muhammad to his death before his appeals
could be pursued, the state of Virginia will execute a severely mentally ill man
who also suffered from Gulf War Syndrome the day before Veterans Day."
