Shlomo is the Shabbat Teddy Bear at Katie's preschool. When a child is either an Abba" (Father) or "Ima" (Mother) for Shabbat service, then Shlomo is part of the honor that they receive. They get to bring him home for the whole weekend and then the parents write a short synopsis of the weekend with Shlomo in a notebook that is passed from student to student. It was fun to read what everybody else has written too. Here is a look at our page. You can click it to make it larger so that you can read it.
Of course, I am going to post pics from all of the events that I mentioned.
These pics are of Katie's class as well as Katie and I in our place of honor on the bima

Look at Ethan sitting quietly and looking at the prayer book
In the evening we went to Judy's 24th birthday celebration.
Here is he birthday girl with her love, JustinHere is Shlomo with Miss Starr at the Party These next 3 pics just crack me up. Ethan is totally the lady's man; whether it be with the older girls in our FCC group or here with Judy's friends. Marc, my Dad and I just laughed as we watched from behind. I kept wondering why they looked so interested in what he was saying. I mean I am sure it was meaningful but I am also sure that they could not understand most of what he was saying. For some reason they looked like they were hanging on every word. My dad speculated that he was asking what their sign was.
On Sunday we had our annual FCC Halloween Event. It took Ethan all of about 2 seconds to get the concept of trick or treating down and he left with a pumpkin full of candy that was so heavy that I think I now have carpal tunnel syndrome after carrying it to the car.
Here are Katie and Ethan before we went to the event. They are such a cute Mickey and Minnie although I think that Ethan's ears could use a bit of Viagra
Standing room only Yes, there is more candy here Mom!
Katie chatting up my wonderful friend, Dawn Do you want more sweets Rachel and Jaci Lu? Why of course! He actually filled this pumpkin up higher before we left

The "P" family I think they need to get to the dentist
Then we went home and carved our pumpkin. Daddy carved and the DD helped...well half of the DD did as Ethan hated the pumpkins innards on his hands...must be that sensory issue..note to self to work on that. While Daddy was giving the pumpkin a face, Katie and Shlomo watched from her trike.
I think that we showed shlomo a good time. We tucked him and the DD in early as they missed their nap and needed to rest up before heading back to school.
