We had a yummy, warm supper of seven layer dinner and then I decided to get fancy with dessert and made a gingerbread cake. I even made homemade whipped cream and sprinkled each piece with cinnamon to make it all classy! Ha ha ha! Sometimes I have fun going a little overboard :) I also made sure to make extra whipped cream so I was able to enjoy homemade mochacinnos with whipped cream all weekend. Yum!
Dave's mom brought us some beautiful roses so I had to have some fun photographing them as well.
On Saturday morning Dave was playing guitar for the service at the synagogue and the kids had Tot Shabbat, which is similar to Sunday School. On Saturday they learned all about celebrating Shabbat and made actual challah and then some challah covers. So when we got home the kids were excited to cover their own challahs with their own challah covers.
In the afternoon Rachel had a nap, I caught up on blogging and Dave and Sam ran some errands. It was a restful Shabbat. Now I'm going to go and see if there's any of that gingerbread cake and whipped cream left. It was good!
Note to my readers: In case you aren't familiar with the Jewish faith, "Shabbat Shalom" is how you greet people on Shabbat, which goes from Friday evening to Saturday evening. "Shabbat Shalom" means "a peaceful Sabbath" which we definitely had this past week!
