So were the boys and their kitties(of course they came)
I dressed the boys in their Jewish blue and yellow shoes for the occasion. The shoes are actually Swedish, but have turned out to be quite versatile. Then we ate some yummy jelly donuts which were hand-made.
waving a binky and sweet-talking them into looking at the camera.
Both my and Gretchen's mother's sides are Jewish and our fathers are both Gentiles--or goyum:) Her dad calls her Gretl. So cute. I really wanted to take a picture of this fellow with the longest, pointiest beard ever, but John thought I might make a spectacle of myself.
I recently made some cookies, and people thought my wise men were angry men--I guess the toga looks like some over-the-shoulder machine gun??? Someone even mistook my baby Jesus for Moses or a bug.
In their defense, the dreidels and menorahs were hand-carved from the cookie dough.
and this is how his mama eats them. John just bought the bag late afternoon yesterday.:(
And just for some balance, here's some of my Christmas stuff:
I really need another stocking for Ollie. Anyone seen any knit stockings out there?
my growing collection of cupcake ornaments
