Yep, we went to an (ahem) circumcision ceremony. It's really lovely to be invited to celebrate such a significant and happy occasion, and I'm saying happy because C. suffered some complications which resulted in her being hospitalised and E. being born some two or more months prematurely. C & J were only able to bring him home from hospital the Saturday past.
