No Sunday Sermon, But A Special Naming Ceremony and Birthday Party.

9 Dec

“From our ancestors come our names, but from our virtues our honors.”



Today was the big birthday party for Belle 3 and Sophie 1. It was held at the Exploritorium in Skokie. Friends and family gathered not only to celebrate the girl’s birthday, but also a traditional naming ceremony for little one year old Sophie, complete with Rabbi. It was good to see some folks that I hadn’t seen since the last ceremony two years ago.

The children all had a great time playing at the education Exporatorium before the ceremony and birthday party.

Sophie had her own little cake for her first birthday.

There were kids running around everywhere, pizza and snacks all over, and parents and grandparents trying to keep some semblance of order, which wasn’t working. Basically, it was the average beautiful birthday party, and fun was had by all.

What would we do without family? Such a gift.

It was a long day, and the little ones were tired, but not as tired as us old folks.

Happy Sunday, my friends.
