If you’re Jewish, you know that Passover began Friday evening. If you’re not, well now you know. 😉 We started the holiday with a lovely seder at my grandparents’ house. They’ve hosted every year for as long as I can remember and probably years before that, as well.
The evening was filled with warm bodies, full hearts, good food, and lots and lots of laughter. It’s always so nice to be surrounded by those you love.
Yes, William’s curly locks are just as amazing in person as they are in photos.
The strongest women in my family.
Lots of little ones present, but missing many more!
Part of Passover’s tradition includes finding the afikomen. The afikomen is part of a piece of matzoh broken off, wrapped up, and hidden to be found by the children. But if you know children, then you know it’s totally not fair if just ONE child finds the afikomen. So to prevent meltdowns, every year every child wins. Yep. This year there were eight afikomens hidden. My cousin Michael did a great job explaining the rules before letting the children loose to explore. He made it clear that they were allowed to find just ONE afikomen, and no matter how good of finders they are, they must exit the room immediately after finding their own. Then he made them stay back while the babies got a head start.
Take a glimpse into our evening with this short video my sister made (including the rules and finding of the afikomen!):
Stephanie takes the best pictures and puts together awesome videos. We’re always grateful for her capturing our memories!
Here is William and I last Passover (just look at that face!!!). And this Passover:
He is a growing boy, that’s for sure!
How was your weekend?
