Making Ice CreamEvery Friday... Make Ice Cream for Shabbat. Sometimes mint, sometimes vanilla, sometimes chocolate or coffee. Always delicious.. Yes, it helps to have an older brother Toby help you make Ice Cream.. Besides, for Frankie it's as much fun to eat the Ice Cream as it is to make it. MMMMM.. GOOOOD !!!
Ezra getting ready for BattleEzra has just been promoted to a Captain. He's getting ready for battle. Usually, he's off fighting in the Civil War, but today he has noticed that things are getting desperate in the Revolutionary War so he is making haste to save the day.

Cat in Laptop's LapIt's cold in the house. Willow must have been cold, as she likes to take a nap on the laptop. Who would have thought of it as a "warm spot". She does manage to push all kinds of buttons.
Sometimes, I feel sad having to kick her off. Oh well. She'll have to find another warm place. But first, I caress her, so she'll know she's part of our family.

Closeup of SnowmanCloseup of Snowman. With the Judean hills in the background.
He could use a better fit for the hat. And maybe a hair cut, or is it a grass cut?
Snow Golem of Ramat RazielThe snow is almost melted. We've taken enough of it to make a Snow Golem. He's got the requisite hat, kiwi eyes, carrot nose, broom and bucket, hat and apron and three friends. Dad, Joshie and Eitan.
He probably won't last the day. In the meantime, we can pretend we are in Alaska. Not quite but almost.
Three Snowballs for Three ChildrenIt was one of those rare snowy nights in Ramat Raziel. This morning the grass was covered with snow and the boys made three snow balls. The snow is almost melted.
The snowball people are Joshie, Yonah and Frankie. We have not named the snowballs. The unnamed snowballs will soon become part of a snowman.

The PirateThe seas have never been more dangerous. The oceans more forbidding. Yet, one Man masters the waters and claims all the ships to be his.

DelicingDina found lice in my hair, so she applied some lice-killing agent in my hair. And covered my head with that absurd pink cap.

A Tower of a ShowJoshie on Toby - A Tower of a Show
Toby can be fully standing up.. I just didn't have the camera at that moment.
The next step is for Joshie to be able to juggle while standing on Toby.
