Thanksgiving


We journeyed to Carlisle, PA for Thanksgiving with Marjorie, Bruce, and family.  We had a great meal at The Hotel Hershey which included an all you can eat gourmet buffet with seafood and raw bar.  Yum!  Then there was a midnight excursion to Walmart for some of us to experience the madness of pre-Black Friday.  You will also notice from the pictures that Alex lost his second front tooth.

Bar Mitzvah weekend


This past weekend was cousin Daniel's Bar Mitzvah in Carlisle, PA.  We all had a great time seeing the whole family and celebrating.  Alex thought the party was "awesome".

November


Alex's class

After Alex had an entire week off of school for Toussaint, he got an additional two days off for Hurricane Sandy.  We had to amuse ourselves in the basement with snacks and car ramps.  We also had a nice play date last weekend with Alex's friend Frank-Eli.

Vincent is walking all over the place and eating with utensils and having a grand ole time.

Alex had a sortie (field trip) to a spectacle de danse "The Creation of the World" presented by a Lithuanian dance troupe at the Kids Euro Festival in DC.  It was also his first time on a school bus which he thought was exciting.

Lots of eating per usual, including a fantastic meal at Full Key in Wheaton with roast duck.

Halloween

Vincent was the Cookie Monster and Alex was Darth Vader, although Alex was also a ninja on Sunday for Rose and Beth's party and a pirate at at school.  Alex loved his first trick or treating experience in the US, and Vincent enjoyed walking everywhere.

Halloween


Earlier in the week we drive to Point of Rocks and over to Virginia and took the ferry back.
