So sorry!

Yeah we're a little behind, it's not that we've really been busy, mostly just too lazy to update!
Well we had a REALLY big snow like we haven't had since WAY before I was born on March 1st. We got over 7 inches! It shut the power out for nearly 24 hours. I had sooooo much fun in the snow! It was awesome!

Our crazy snow man!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Friday night is the first night of the Feast of Unleavened Bread. Friday night we'll have the Passover Seder. You read from a special book called the Haggadah, and say special prayers. At different parts you eat Matza, Have herbs and dip them in salt water, have matza and horseradish, have matza and charoset (an apple mixture), and have latza' matza! So right now you're probably thinking "What on Earth is Matza?"

Well I'll tell you. Matza is unleavened bread. During the Feast of Unleavened Bread you don't eat any leaven, so that means no bread, no cookies, no pancakes, no cake, no pizza, no anything with yeast. When the Israelites were leaving Egypt they didn't have much time to bake their bread, so they made small unleavened bread that wouldn't rise.

Because of that reason and because leaven symbolises sin, The Feast of Unleavened Bread is a time where you get rid of the sin in our lives and focus on other things.

The first and last day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread are set-apart and you're not supposed to do any work.

So that's Passover in a nut-shell!

That's all for now!
