the kids are sick, tali has decorated herself several times today and we are trying to knit some hats for the isareli soldier chanukah project, so while i am gone here are some pictures to keep you occupied, from our family retreat last week in mt hermon.
ok, this is just yarn i spun. plied one half with red thread and one half with green
a wedding where the bride wore white... and a guitar. so did the groom, but you cant see his from this angle.
moose leading the kids on the great golden walnut hunt tali collected 58 walnuts:-) go tali go
zemeira falling asleep at the table :-) after making tambourines, collecting walnuts, collecting shekels for the shekel shack, and making koolaid playdough...she was worn out!
jaden is always ready to go. oh, the boy( turned 18 while we were there, so "man") in the background was soo brave. he was requested to eat dinner with a table of 8-12 yr old girls, and HE DID IT. such a mensch! tirzah and kezzi are behind jadey.
after the retreat we took the kids to see the ocean cuz it had been a few years. i know we live in california, we should go more!

Thank you Beth! I cant wait to see how the malbrigio lace weight knits up!
A wonderful box made its way south to my house from Canada. Tali loved opening the "happy's" (as in happy bday, happy chanukah. they are all happy presents). she likes the rocks on a stick :-)
Penny put together this box filled with Tea and cookies and a tea pot! it is so cute. and it matches my Johnson Bros. cookie jar a bit :-) you cant see but the roof of the big cookie jar and the adrker colour in the teaset rooves are the same colour.
Thank you Penny! i hope your box arrives in one piece!
My Aunt had back surgery, there was an aneurysm that went to her heart and she died.
Lynda would have been 50 next month.
Please keep my family in prayer and the 2 time zone travel that may need to happen.
This was very unexpected.
