There is something peaceful about having your family come to visit. I can’t put my feelings into words, but everything just feels right. Things makes sense. It’s like I feel complete.

Sure my family and I argue from time to time, but we always make up. Family is everything to me!

This past weekend my sister, Oshrat, came to visit us for the weekend. Our jam packed weekend was filled with many outings and late night sister sessions. We had so much fun! It was really nice to have her visit us for the weekend and bond again. With less then a 4 year age difference we always got along growing up, but not seeing her on a regular basis has changed some things. Already missing her I wanted to share some of the fun we had.

The first day of her visit, Sarah and I took her to our Tot Shabbat class. Later that day we took her to our mommy group’s Holiday Craft and Potluck.

She did really well! I was really impressed!

In the mood for something sweet, we made these yummy cookies in a mug via My Kitchen Antics.

We were all feeling the jam packed weekend and the sleepless night due to Sarah’s inability to sleep with a congested nose.

Finally at the airport, she calls to let me know her flight was delayed an hour and a half! Yikes! With a day of work already missed, she just wanted to get home. Geesh!

Thanks for coming to hang out with us Oshrat! We had a lot of fun! xo
