Spring has FINALLY sprung here in Illinois. We were able to enjoy the Flower and Garden Show downtown. The kids and I had a blast, and they enjoyed seeing downtown Chicago. I am SO grateful for the wonderful weather, spring break, and flowers attempting to pop up. Since I work at a school, I have spring break off too, so we've been busy with playdates, errands, going downtown (tomorrow) and Passover!!
This year, I revived my Peeps for Passover (see these Pics..... http://www.flickr.com/photos/stylecouncil/441046093/in/set-72157600038845249/) and also, we are inviting new friends to our Seder. A Seder is a ritual meal shared with family and friends saying blessings, and eating and drinking a lot. We hide the Afikomen, (which is a piece of matzoh) and the children run to find it and get a prize). Instead of toys this year as prizes, I've bought each child - including my nephew who is a Freshman, magazines to the tune of their tastes. Who knew "Bop" was till out there?
I made this a few years ago, and it hangs in our foyer.
