A Fall Assortment

Summer Fridays are over…Anna’s back to the ol’ grind.
IMG_6404 Once October hit, Katie pulled out the leaf garland she crafted 4 years ago.  IMG_6408 And made additional bunting for our family photo. We have yet to meet something that can’t be improved with bunting. IMG_6414Case in point: our fire escape adorned with a prayer flag brought back from Bhutan by our cousin. buntingIt ain’t officially fall until you’ve picked up a kid from school. Here’s Jude lined up for dismissal. Children in school lines holding hands are just the sweetest. photo 2
And a perfect fall weekend spent watching people stuff their faces with dumplings. The winner? A teensy, tiny girl who downed 90 (!) dumplings in 2 minutes. Sadly, the dumpling mascot is not pictured. dimpling dumpling

Chinatown is endlessly fascinating. I never get tired of walking past buckets brimming with live eels, crabs and frogs. Or windows full of chickens and geese on nooses. IMG_6424 IMG_6425 IMG_6426IMG_6423 In Chicago I orient myself according to the lake. Here, the Empire State Building does the job. IMG_6427 IMG_6428

For the first time in 4 years, I headed up to Harlem and explored the Columbia campus. photo 1

    How can I order one of those fab garlands? Autumn in NY – or Chicago – really is a special time of the year but sorry to see Anna is having to burn the midnight oil.
