Passover 2010 (with Uncle Joey - yay!)

Adam enjoyed his 4th year of Passover Seders earlier this week. Passover has always been a special holiday for me, especially since Adam has been born... as he's my little Passover baby (he was five DAYS old during his first Seder)!

We were all very excited that Uncle Joey was in town from CA to celebrate with us. Adam & Uncle Joey had a good time reconnecting on Sunday night (what a special birthday treat, having Uncle Joey there to celebrate with!):

For the first Seder, we headed over to Marty's house. We got to meet Marty's kids (they were very sweet) and Marty's 2-year-old grandson, Mo (who was absolutely adorable). Mom & Marty led the Seder and they cooked a scrumptious meal!

Adam entertained himself during the seder by making a "matzah/apple juice treat" (ugh)

Adam found this old recorder in the house... it wasn't as much of a hit with the guests, I might add!

Adam & Mo... they almost look like brothers!

Adam loved Mo... he even told Grandma that they were "twins"!

Our second Seder was very low-key... just a little family seder at Mom's house:

Adam always enjoys his "wine" (apple juice!)

Overall, we had 2 enjoyable (& quite short - not that I'm complaining!) Seders this year. I think of my Dad every day, but especially during Passover. He loved the holiday and followed his haggadah from the '70s (which I just spent 30 minutes on-line looking for) almost to the letter. We always used Mom's Len.ox Seder plate, (brother) Steven's seder plate (that he made when he was 10) and the afikomen holder, also from the '70s. Mom used the same recipes, year after year, and we always had the 1st Seder at home (usually follwed by a 2nd Seder at the Shuman's house). Such sweet memories.
