My Favorite Missed Moments

Apologies aside I thought I'd put forth a list of my favorite moments from the past month and a half that you may have missed.
  • The New Years Eve party - without a doubt our best ever.... I mean Michael singing Di Provenza? Yosef B singing Tom Lerer? Aviv and Louisa playing violin? Avram & I and Estie doing various comedy acts? Jen reciting poetry? Moshe doing magic? Joey doing Jeopardy? CAN IT GET BETTER THAN THAT?!?!

  • Chana joining our family.

  • The annual trip downtown to see the holiday windows... leading up to Jen having trouble seeing in the crowds until she meekly announced in a voice loud enough for all to hear, "could you please let me through - the don't let me out of the orphanage very often and I'd really like to see....". Oh and lets not forget Moshe stopping random strangers in the street to join in one enormous "family photo".

  • Discovering Starbucks' Wild Sweet Orange Tazo Tea... I couldn't have gotten through my three week long cold without it.

My Apologies!

Oh it's been far too long and I'm so sorry. I don't have much of an excuse other than to say that making shidduchim for one's children is ANOTHER full time job - tacked on to homemaking plus any full time jobs held outside of the home. So I guess I've been up to holding down THREE full time jobs lately.
But I've been given a break! With tremendous gratitude to Hashem, we were blessed with our son Michael's engagement to Chana. Chana is the sweetest, loveliest girl... and I don't just say that because she already calls me "Mom" ;)

Yankele... Get me my dancing shoes.....

With overflowing gratitude to Hashem Yisborach for all the blessings bestowed upon our family this year, I am pleased to announce the engagement of our dear son Michael to Chana.

So it's back on the roller coaster, I guess.... some of us are still a bit woozy from the last ride! A daughter, a mother and a son - all in the span of 8 months.....

Feel the moments, feel the moments... that's the mantra. They are gone before you turn around.
