He Passed Over!

On Saturday, Havilah and Benjamin had their first Passover Seder!!

Here is a list of the Passover blessings, first in Hebrew and then translated to English:

During the Seder each of us four eldest children (that can read! ;))...  asked the four questions:

1) Why is it that on all other nights during the year we eat either bread or matzoh, but on this night we eat only matzoh?

2) Why is it that on all other nights we eat all kinds of herbs, but on this night we eat only bitter herbs?

3) Why is it that on all other nights we do not dip our herbs even once, but on this night we dip them twice?

4) Why is it that on all other nights we eat either sitting or reclining, but on this night we eat in a reclining position?

After we asked the questions, Daddy read us the whole "Passover Story" from the Bible-- in the book of Exodus!

We Thank the Lord that He became our Passover Lamb!

Happy Passover!!

Coloring Time!

Eden was such a blessing to our family during chicken pox time!

In this picture only Havilah has it, but everyone mingled the entire time so we always had the "three littles" with us!  ;-)

Now it's our turn to be a blessing to De-De 'cause she has chicken pox!
