Passover

I don't know exactly how it happened but our seder took a turn towards the silly this year. In years past, we have always had thoughtful, insightful discussions at our seder table. Not this year. It probably had something to do with the plague props I brought home from school. Even when the girls were young we didn't use plague props! Why this year? I don't know!
I just did!

My new salt and pepper shakers set the tone..........This has nothing to do with the silliness, just a great picture!

Poor Ms. A! She asked me when she would stop being the youngest at the table?! I told her as soon as she has children she can stop saying the 4 questions !!!!! (4 questions info here and here) LOL!! In actuality we all helped her. She has been the youngest for 23 years now!


As I said, I brought home all of my plague props from school. Here are Mrs. S. and Mr. FancyPants trying to keep up with us! They had finger puppets and were racing to get them on their fingers as fast as we read!
In order to use all of my plague props we had to read them twice! Here are all of the other props. Ms. A and C2 were in charge of the second set of props. I didn't have the patience to get the photos in proper order.....
blood...
frogs....

locust....(LOVE this ENORMOUS prop!)


hail..... (falling from the sky in this shot!)
on the ground here.....

cattle disease............
C2 is demo-ing my fancy schmacy cow that collapses toy!




Pharaoh and Moses with one of the wild beasts.......


It just goes to show that making a seder memorable is fun........


(the sunglasses represent darkness......C2 realllly appreciated his kiddie glasses!! LOL!)
...................NO MATTER WHAT YOUR AGE!

(did ya' notice the matzo kippot!)

Great Seder photos. I love the props. We used to do a better job filling our "Megillah in a Box" with creative props but stopped when the kids got older. That was silly!
The latest issue of The New Yorker magazine has a funny set of contemporary plagues (call waiting, spam email, etc.) Also there is a Facebook Haggedeh that is pretty cool too.
Happy Passover.

What great pictures! It looks like everyone was having a good time. Thanks for sharing. Your new book looks interesting. Is it all about lettering? I really like your "monsterous" quilt. All the bright colors make it very cheerful.
