We went back to my cousin's house, where we were staying, and the boys had afternoon naps while the rest of us got ready for the Passover seder. Although the boys were around for Passover last year, this really felt like their first Passover.

This very short week has been exhausting; after a 7+ hour trip coming back from Wellesley (we lost my cousin's husband at a rest area), we hosted a small seder at our house. We got home at 3:30 and our guests came at 5:30-- what were we thinking?!? My mom had said she would help with food preparation but was delayed, so we were on our own... and we pulled it off. It was the first seder and holiday meal I hosted in my own home, and it gave me an opportunity to use my wedding china.
