We’ve had the cold weather visit us again… which means more museum going for us.  The Jewish Museum has a funky collection of art by Jewish artists – anything from robots to bicycle art can be viewed here, as well as a whole floor of older and new relics and Judaica  (menorahs galore!) from Israel and around the world.

This year we had a Purim Carnival at our synagogue, and then an Easter egg hunt on our alley.  I did something my mom taught me years ago… created bunny prints with a stencil and sifted flour.  And Zoe and I created a picture board for the Purim carnival together (although it later turned into a bean bag toss to win tickets!)

Our Hanukkah party brought out a lot of people! A party of 115 folks… And what an excellently fun and diverse group we are. I loved the mass candle lighting the most, and of course Zoe loved the face painting.

Last weekend we decorated the sukkah – how can you not love a holiday that celebrates a harvest? And with that in mind, we are scrambling to collect the things that we’ve been growing before all the rain here blows it down.

Have a great weekend!

We made a long and crazy road trip to Rochester – where the weather was balmy enough for a day (or 2) to hang in the hot tub. Cousin soup! It was a weekend of hiking and playing in the woods, and of course AMAZING FOOD and performances. Zoe cried when we headed home because she already misses all her big cousins wanting to carry her everywhere!

this road trip starts off a little crazy!
