Happy Purim to all. My DH and boys went to shul. To hear the Megila (scroll) of Ester. Someone is coming later on to read the Megila at our house for me and the girls. It is too hard for me to go to shul, and sit there for any amount of time. And Purim is a very boisterous, noisy holiday.
So, meanwhile I am checking my emails, finishing up the grown up shalachmonos (gift packages) and heating up a meal for my family. The girls are cleaning up post-Shabbos debris and finishing the dress up things.
It is nice and quiet.
Will not last, so I better enjoy it while I can.
P.S. These are the pictures of how my kids looked last year on Purim.
I have not come up with a new Purim pattern this year. Things were to hectic. But here is the pattern from last year.
