Good Monday, everyone!  We are all suffering from a bit of Easter hangover this fine (gloomy) morning. Hope you are too!  It was a fabulous weekend and holiday. So, I get asked a lot, here is the deal:  I was raised Jewish and still observe Jewish holidays and traditions.  Zach goes to a synagogue play school so he gets that there too.  My kids’ Dad is Catholic and therefore my kids ALSO are exposed to those holidays as well.  And me?  Well my theory on religion is a LONG story but typically I feel that holiday celebrations are important traditions to have and likewise important to base the kids’ culture around.  So last week we made hamentashen…

And our “traditional” Easter dinner.  I always make lasagna, ham, green beans and Easter bread.  YUMMMMM!  Oh, with a side of light saber fighting, of course 🙂
