Purim 2006

The girls dressed up for Purim.

Michal was Sleeping Beauty, Dassi was a Hawaiian girl and Tali, a nurse. Shira who is not shown was a fairy.

I also decided to get dressed and thought carefully about my costume. Irrespective of that, Dana had a better idea and I turned up as....

yes, you guessed right...The Grim Teacher!

We went to the Synagogue to hear the reading of the Megillah and join in the party that followed it. My disguise scared the life out of most of the kiddies present (he he he) and even some of their parents...

...but after a while, the girls got used to the interesting disguise and as you can see from the next photo, didn't seem too frightened...

By the end of the evening, the make up had started melting and I looked less like death and more like a panda!

(our Anneliese dressed up in a chinese costume and took her panda to shul as a china doll). We tried to have her do Haman Boo - but instead she did a lot of Wah and laughing - close eh!

What beautiful girls! If you think you have your hands full now... wait a couple years! Fending off rotten apples won't be easy with these beauties in the house! You'll be plagued!

You wouldn't have scared me. Everytime I fight with aluminum foil... I win!
