Princess Marnie & Thad the clown
The red velvet hamentaschen I ended up making! Soooooo good! You can find the recipe Here. In the morning we will be delivering our mishloach manot (purim gift baskets) filled with the s’more & red velvet hamentashen, oranges, apples, and bananas. Purim Sameach!
My first time making hamentashen was a success I’d say! These s’more hamentashen (I got the recipe here ) are delicious! I also had plans to make red velvet and Speculoos hamentashen too, but I don’t know if I see that happening 😁 Marnie plans on being a princess for Purim, and thad will be a clown. I think I’ll tie a cape to baby Ozzie’s Ergo carrier when I wear him to the Temple carnival. Purim Sameach!
We started some bean and zucchini plants and colored some “mitzvah trees” which I found here
The Jewish new year of trees, may be a minor holiday that not all Jews observe, but I have to say it’s one of my favorite holidays to celebrate. So many fun ways to celebrate!
I wish I was able to get on here more, but the kids keep me super busy, I was really hoping this could be a more helpful guide to people thinking of converting or those going through it since there wasn’t much when I started. Maybe one day I’ll get there! If you stumble across this blog at some point and have questions, don’t hesitate to ask! I also recommend following the Coffee Shop Rabbi, she’s super great and you’ll learn a lot!
The husband has guaranteed he will get off in time to make it to Shabbat at least once a month, so I’m very excited about that. Hanukkah gifts are already wrapped and ready to go for the most part. I figure I’d better get that done because I’ll be busy with Ozzie recovering from his surgery next month :( I am starting to become a hot mess about it, and I feel bad because it’s making things that should be fun, like thanksgiving, really sad for me. I just hope ok doing a good job at not letting that show. Please keep my little guy in your prayers! It would be much appreciated.
wishing you all a happy, healthy, and peaceful year!
