Karen begins her day as Queen Esther

Purim wasn’t as exciting this year as in years past, mostly because most celebrations were postponed due to rain. Usually we attend parades and other outdoor activities with Karen, all of us in costume, or at least a funny hat.

This year Matan was a bit too young to enjoy the holiday, but Karen received a costume from her grandmother. I call it a Genie costume, but her teacher told her she was Queen Esther. Karen corrected her and said she was in fact, Vashti (the evil woman in the Purim story).
