Pilgrims, pumpkins and holly jolly. For that brief moment, the first snow stopped meaning wet shoes, messy floors and runny noses and instead I allowed myself to see it through my children's eyes. To the kids the first snow meant surprise, smiles, imagination and bright-eyed wonder.

One sunny August afternoon, my younger son and I walked to the post office and mailed out 200 bar mitzvah invitations.
