Oy, have I been busy.

I didn't even have a chance to wish my Jewish frends and happy Passover. I hope you all had a nice sedar. The bubela did an excellent rendition of the Ma Nish Ta Na. Oy, I was so proud.

As for the baking this year, I made great almond macaroons and a great plava (light sponge cake made without flour and suitable for passover). I know the family are pleased I have taken over from Mama whom every year used to make our plava cake, and oy vey what a cake. We used to call it the "stick in the throat cake". You'd have to have it with a large glass of kosher wine (I'm not complaining) but it would take the rest of the service to digest.

She has since been sacked retired from baking the cakes, probably due to the greif she gets every year... giving me the job (the next balebuste of the family).

As for the knitting, I've finally sewn and made up the peach cardigan for Cydney. Its all wrapped up and ready to go.

I'm now 12 weeks pregnant. I had a scan last night and the Little Chooch is well and bright. Now, I am just so excited about this pregnancy and can't wait to meet it. *Cant stop smiling* Once I get photos of my bump and scan uploaded, I'll share them all with you... promise.

Glad to hear that you are both doing fine. My doctor put me on bedrest for a few days. Only 6 more days until I'm induced. I can't wait to get this over with and have her here!!! Have you told the bubela yet that he is going to be a big brother?

So lovely to hear from you - hope you are feeling well - I know what you mean about wanting to meet your new baby - I am so much more impatient this time than I was last time - maybe it's something to do with the dreadful morning sickness I've been having this time.

Anyway - can't wait to see you piccies - get 'em up nice and soon

I couldn't find matzah in Costa Rica so I skipped Passover this year. I hope to be in the know next year a bit more on top of things. Just another item to add to the list for Yom Kippur. ;-)

How exciting! At 12 weeks, I was sick as a dog, just throwing up every day a few times a day. Sounds like you are having a good time of it. When I have been invited to Passover dinner, I make this chocolate flourless cake, and use a little almond meal instead of flour. It's on Epicurious.com. Calls for 6 egg yolks and then I ended up doubling or tripling the batch. Oy!
