Newsletter: Nov. 2009

I hope everyone had a fun and safe Halloween! Were you one of of the estimated 36 million+ trick-or-treaters?

November has several holidays that we observe:
Nov. 11th is Veterans Day: a national holiday in honor of military veterans.
It is also called Armistice Day to commemorate the end of WWI.
The 4th Thursday in Nov. is Thanksgiving Day: an annual celebration feast
originating from the pilgrims.
The day after Thanksgiving is called "Black Friday" - be sure to plan ahead
to take advantage of the best shopping deals of the year!

Welcome New Au Pair Arrivals
We have one new au pair arriving this month: Gaby will be joining
us on the 19th from Paraguay. Be sure to make her feel welcome
when she arrives!
