Gosh. Every time I think I'm going to get back to my Regular Blogging Schedule, something else gets in the way. See-phones (and here is a shout-out to DADZ, for I neglected to mention that he accompanied me on that fateful faucet-finding foray), the 7-day holiday of Purim, making dinner, more see-phones, sniffing hot glue while they install stuff in your apartment...
So I will get away with a Cheater's Post and upload some pictures from Purim.
Yaakov = Yaakov Avinu (hence the green plastic bowl of red lentils)
Ariella = Rivka Imenu (because we have a lot of stuffed camels, on which the costume was based, so naturally on Costume Day at school she forgot the camels at home, necessitating a frantic phone call to Mommy, who had to run back to the apartment, collect the camels and deliver them safely to school)
Nadav = Peter Pan (for about five minutes, until the velcro on the shirt got too itchy, at which point I changed him into a blue polo shirt, so he became Peter Pan Goes to Shul.)
