Posts Tagged ‘Purim’

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!)

Making masks while dressed like kings and queens. It goes without saying that we LOVE when Rabbi Wood sports a whacky costume as well! She looks great in wings :

photo 5

Today is Ezra’s 100th Day of School – a day that is celebrated by kids making a poster of 100 things, and presenting it at school. It was kind of hysterical seeing a sea of small kids practically sailing to school this morning with their large poster boards in hand, the cold wind pushing them along. I wish I had time this a.m. to photograph Ezra’s poster of a brain bursting with 100 star stickers, his ‘one new thing learned each day’. But alas, the a.m. is too frantic and crazy for me to remember to pull out a camera.
Instead I think this photo says it all. Last week Ezra climbed to the top of the ‘spider web’ (as he calls it) in his old school. It use to terrify him to do this. He was so proud. Really – where does the time go? I know it’s such a cliche but they really do grow so fast.

And because it’s Friday and because I’m still obsessed with teepees, making things of cardboard, and having fun indoors while it’s cold – here’s our weekly list of beautiful things:

— Got a big box? Make an indoor slide.

— Turn that old dress into a teepee!

— So much beautiful wood… look at that headboard.

Paper maps of various cities.

— I love these painted floors

Amazing hats, and the studio – don’t you just want to live in there?

— Some fun photos of my old neighborhood.

An amazing discovery – nanny turned photographer who left gorgeous photos behind.

— Stylish rebels: best dressed men ever.

— This weekend is Purim! We are breaking out these costumes again and hope to try this hamentashen recipe – yum!
