December 16 - 24

Okay, sorry I got behind again, lost track of when I last updated! But enjoy!

December 24, 2009: I love snowboarding! And had a great 2 days on the slopes!!!!

December 23, 2009: Falling off mountains, is what I do best! The conditions were awesome and Mom braved the frigid temps to snap this picture of me as I came off the slopes!

December 22, 2009: I was reunited with my snowboard tonight! I love this board and so happy I was able to get it to take with me to Jiminy Peak!

December 21, 2009: Kids are so innocent when playing in the snow. And apparently it is hard work to shovel the backyard!

December 20, 2009: We ended up with about a foot of snow. It looks so peaceful after it snows.

December 19, 2009: SNOW!!! At 10pm I went outside, it was cold, and we already had a few inches, with more to come.

December 18, 2009: What are you looking for Reindeer? The person who knocked over Santa?
December 17, 2009: We have gone even more eco-friendly. I love seltzer and now I can enjoy with less of a footprint, thanks to our soda maker. It is so fun and was a belated housewarming gift from Uncle Lou and Aunt Lisa and family.

December 16, 2009: Rick Recht gave a concert tonight at shul. It was a very fun night and a nice Chanukah treat!

December 7 - 15

Sorry, I got so behind!! Enjoy!

December 15, 2009: I love Chanukah, mostly because I think burning candles are so amazing to watch. It may also have to do with my slight history as a pyromaniac (I never burned anything!). The lights looked really beautiful tonight!

December 14, 2009: I had my annual appointment with my audiologist. I will refrain from making any "can you hear me now" jokes. You are welcome.

December 13, 2009: Murphy and I played tug of war with her bunny. Yes, I know its a chicken, but all her toys are called bunnies. She has a strong jaw, its crazy, she wins every game.

December 12, 2009: Happy 2nd night of Chanukah! The first night candle decided to burn 2x faster.... no one told the candle there is no race going on.

December 11, 2009: I went to the ballet at the Kennedy Center tonight. It was a delightful evening and a wonderful show. It was my Chanukah gift to myself!

December 10, 2009: Punch buggy no punch backs! Look at this classic car, so amazing.

December 9, 2009: I am making this hamsa pillow for my mom. I added lined in the hand to define its parts, it came out so great.

December 8, 2009: Time to sell back books. I made a decent amount back, now its almost time to order next semester's books!

December 7, 2009: What a beautiful sunset tonight! I also have to say that this is an iPhone picture and is really good quality!

December 2 - 6

December 6, 2009: Today went by like a blur (heehee, get it). I spent all day studying and prepping for finals. I feel like I am in good shape and am sure the week will fly by and it will be break before I know it!

December 5, 2009: First snow!!!!!! It was so beautiful! We got around 2 inches or this beautiful powder. I hope there is so much more to come this winter!!

December 4, 2009: And now it is really official. The official mailed acceptance packet arrived today. Mom took the picture and sent it to me! I cannot wait to get my hands on it in a week!!!

December 3, 2009: My first bit of Wheelock memorabilia! My mom was given this cup upon her graduation from Wheelock, 26 years ago. I feel so elated to continue our legacy at Wheelock!

December 2, 2009: The class I interned in all semester threw a surprise going away party for me and the student teacher. The kids made us thank you cards, it was so sweet. I will miss them so much!

November 25 - December 1

Hi December, where did you come from?

December 1, 2009: I saw this beautiful rainbow from a stained glass window today. It was so pretty, at first I thought it was chalk and then I realized what it was!

November 30, 2009: I GOT INTO WHEELOCK!!!!!! Enough said...

November 29, 2009: Back on the train! Heading back to DC for the last 2 weeks of the semester, um very crazy.

November 28, 2009: I got an iPhone! I am so excited. Thank you mom!!

November 27, 2009: Mom and I took a walk this afternoon around downtown White Plains. We found this pub. Turtles are my favorite animal! How cool is that!

November 26, 2009: I cannot believe I am posting this.... Gobble

November 25, 2009: We were over at friends last night helping cook for Thanksgiving. Their son is a huge Yankees fan, I discovered this on their fridge...ouch....

November 16 - 24

Sorry I got so behind!

November 24, 2009: I decided to play SET, by myself. I was rusty but enjoyed my time of brain stimulation.

November 23, 2009: I went to Boston, for all of 5 hours! I cannot wait to find out if the trip was worth it - well, it was worth it, but yeah you know.... This is the Park Street T stop - and apparently the first subway stop ever.

November 22, 2009: We met up with our cousin Eric for brunch today. This is pretty typical - faces and slightly blurry... it was a fun morning.

November 21, 2009: What a dedicated (and talented) husband. He can apply make up, and well! Avi you are really lucky to have Ben.

November 20, 2009: How cool is this? The Renaissance Tower was reflecting the sky!

November 19, 2009: So, you can watch TV in NYC cab's - they even have GPS. Got to love 2009!

November 18, 2009: I found a penny today, I hadn't found one in a long time and it made me smile!

November 17, 2009: I went a bit highlighter happy trying to find the right color that wouldn't shmeer, etc. Atleast it looks pretty, right?

November 16, 2009: I hadn't used a thumb drive in forever, but needed it for a presentation. I didn't realize I had such a collection.

November 11 - 15


November 15, 2009: Nothing says fall like squash. I had a delicious acorn squash topped with cinnamon tonight. Makes me get really excited for Thanksgiving.

November 14, 2009: So this is meant to be rotated another 90ยบ to the right, but still looks cool. I walked into Georgetown tonight and had fun taking pictures of the wall around the Russian Embassy. The stones had an interesting color from the damp past 3 days.

November 13, 2009: Day 3 of rain! Thank you Hurricane Ida.... at least my wellies are getting a workout!

November 12, 2009: We took a field trip to the Apple Store today. The kids had a blast learning about iphoto and making photo books and slideshows and we got t-shirts!

November 11, 2009: I tried this minty water - oddly refreshing. Think spearmint gum but water....

November 5 - 10

November is flying by, I don't know how I feel about that!!!

November 10, 2009: I looked down on the counter while doing my dishes and thought this looked too much like Spongebob, sad but true.

November 9, 2009: Seriously? Neopets? I don't think my neopets can possibly be still alive any more! Hope the Neopets animal welfare people don't come after me....

November 8, 2009: 'Tis the season... time to bring out the humidifier for the winter months. I got myself a new one this year and am quite pleased with it so far.

November 7, 2009: Mazal Tov JSA! We had the annual Bar Mitzvah party and it was a blast!!

November 6, 2009: I follow the Kabbalistic (no I am not a Kabbalist) practice of wearing a red string from Israel to absorb negative energy around me. It falls off or breaks when it can no longer absorb negative energy. Mine fell off today after two months. Oddly enough I put on right around the time I sent my application to Wheelock and today I found out the last part of the application got there - weird!!

November 5, 2009: Z-Ville went to the Tenley Fire Station today. It was a great trip and we learned a ton about how they do their work. There were 2 calls while we there too!
