A little Holiday

I have some scenes from our Tu B' Shevat Seder (think of it as a Jewish Arbor Day). Stylistically, it was much like last year. I just wanted to share some photos because it keeps me personally accountable to get the pictures from my camera and actually do something with them. It also reminds me that I have got to learn how to set the camera to take better nighttime pictures. Jeesh--these are grainy!

The kids started the evening by planting herbs which will be ready by Passover. Note that the kids made place cards for both the workstation and the dinning table--they like to mark their territory!!!

After we planted we went in for a short service (you can see the decor is very similar to last year):

The kids made the challah into two little trees. Some days the size of our eggs or humidity changes the challah. Yesterday was just outstanding--I wish I could bottle up whatever we did to make its so good!

Finally, the reason that I do all of these "challah-days" are the two little smiling faces at the end of the table.
