2 down, 1 to go... or not.
MD's & A's costumes are done (besides the make-up).
Y had an idea for a cute costume, but we did not have what she wanted for it, and no time to run out and get it. So, either she will come up with something else, or not. The current plan is for her to put together something funky from things she already has. I am sure she will look cute, no matter what she does.
MD & A, on the other hand, are going for the freaky look. MD is the Malakh HaMavet (the angel of death, a.k.a. the grim reaper) and Aliza is the devil. Both want deathly white faces... yuch!
A decided on her costume months ago. At least a month ago, she made a devil's cape in her art class. She will wear her cape and a headband with devil's horns. Together, we also made a wicked pitch fork.
MD had something very specific in mind. We made a sickle for him, but were not finding the right cape. Then, a friend dug out of her closet the most awesome cloak for him, hood and all, straight out of the 18th century!
MD is in 6th grade, and the kids in his class are running the school's shuk Purim (Purim fair) on Sunday. Right after Shabbat, they went to school to decorate the classrooms. The kids are working 'till late, and then are going to sleep in school. They needed two parents to volunteer to sleep in the school with them. Crazy or not, I volunteered. Since there were only two volunteers, I am going.
I love this stuff!!
Please daven (or send happy, healing thoughts) for RivkA bat Teirtzel.
With love and optimism,
