Purim 2018

We love Purim and this year was no different! I love doing my kids make up and dressing them up. I ordered costumes online about 1 month ago. Some didn't come. Some came and were too small - so we improvised at the last minute!! But all in all from school parties to playing around,… Continue reading Purim 2018


More pleasurable than sushi

Last week my husband treated my nine year old. He went with her for sushi - just the two of them. And she loved it. When we lived in North America, sushi was a given.

We finally did it

I don't really like to speak about my kids online.... But I just wanted to post some of my 15 year olds pics that she has taken over the course of being here. She has been in a high school, where she majors in photography and film making, and she has done phenomenally well. I… Continue reading Plug for my daughter


Happy birthday 

Today would've been my dads birthday. The 12 Nov was always an immense day of celebration. Not necessarily in the form of a party, but as a family, we all revered and idolized my father, and being with him on his birthday meant a lot to all of us. Everything about my dad was big,… Continue reading Happy birthday
