{September 13, 2015}   A full house

What would a weekend be like at GES’ house if it wasn’t filed with people?

Based on what I’ve told you in the past, you’re probably saying “well, duh” and you would be right!

Tonight is Erev Rosh Hashanah, the eve of Rosh Hashanah, this being the beginning of the High Holidays which are the holiest of holidays also known as the beginning of the Jewish New Year.  You know I’ll tell you more about it tomorrow, tonight I just want to tell you about the full house,  full of love and laughter and people.

We were expecting about 30 people!  Some might think that’s crazy, that’s just par for the course!

So…Saturday GES and I got down to  it…cooking. We made treee chickens, chicken  soup, matzoh balls (for thirty!) a really good barley and corn recipe and blondies for desert.

Everyone brought something..appetizers,  fruit, side dishes and dessert. Apples and honey to start off the new year right…stupid…for a sweet new year.
I think we’re going to be alright.

We started with blessings over the holiday,  challah and wine and then got down to it. What a treat! Almost all of the kids were occupied so it was the perfect opportunity for the parents get through an entire meal,  on their own,  imagine that!

It was the opportunity to be with loved ones,  celebrating a new year, beginnings and being together. 

Seems like that is the theme at my sister and brother-in-laws house no matter what,  doesn’t it?
