I have been invited to Pre-Purim Program, but today I have found out that we will be celebrating Amalie's birth tomorrow at 5:00pm so I checked to see what time Pre-Purim Program is. It's from 2:00 to 4:00pm so I should be home on time.
Update 2/17: Susan wants to go to Disneyland with children so the family gathering will be moved to tomorrow.
Update 2/18: Julie was kind enough to drive me to the Pre-Purim Program. We where one of the first to get there and since we where first I was asked if I wanted to help with preparations I said that I did. To fined out what needs to be done I had to go to the front desk. A woman at the front desk thought for a while and asked me to look after a 9 years old boy. Let's just say that I had not done this much running since I have graduated high school. After all the preparations where done and all the guest arrived a woman came to fetch us. We went into the room marked with number 3, all the guests where already there some where playing on musical instruments. I too was offered to play the instrument, but at first I refused. Then I figured that it was going to be fun, I have picked timbrel. After making music or to be honest a lot of noise as everyone was playing at the same time and out of tune. When that was done I went to next room to bake hamentashen. While hamentashen was baking I had gone to make Purim basket and a mask. I have also started to draw the painting, but Rebbe was getting ready to speak, so I have went to listen. When he was done it was time for snack. I got my hamentashen. Unfortunately I was not able to try anything else as I had to go home. The mask that I made did not dry so I was not able to take it home, but when I did come home I was pleasantly surprised. Susan and the children, and my grandparents where home. They had finished eating pizza, they left some for me, and where eating cake. The pizza was delicious. After eating I had gone to walk the dog. I had to go twice because at the time of first walk Pearl was feeding her puppies.
