A New Beginning...

Happy New Year to all you fellow Jewish people...may this new year bring you all the happiness and prosperity that you deserve!

Today Alex and I went to the Rosh Hashana kids service.  I was a bit worried that without Jack there for company he wouldn't sit still and participate.  But, contrary to my fears, Alex was an angel.  He sang along to all the songs, followed along with children's story of the earth's birthday.  I sometimes forget how much I love the feeling of community I feel when I am at the temple.  It was great to see so many of the kids Jack when to preschool with for 3 years before they all scattered to different schools for kindergarten. 

I knew I would be sitting on the floor with Alex during the service, so I decided to wear pants.  Good thing, you should have seen the other moms trying to sit on the floor with their pencil skirts and dresses...ha!!

While I has taking these photos in our yard, Alex asked if we could do a family photo shoot...even though it was just the two of us...



 Today I am linking up with all the fabulous ladies over at the Monday Mingle...go check them out!

I'm not Jewish, but happy new year! I love your "family photo"--too cute! That sweater is one of my favorites, and it looks great with those purple shoes!
