The first Wisch Family Passover is actually the first Davila Family Passover. Rachael put on a tremendous Seder with the help of her cousin Hava and her trusty sidekick, Alex. It was really nice. We even established a new culinary tradition of using a corned beef brisket as our main course. ("Really, Dad? I didn't know there was another kind of brisket.) While it may sound disgusting to the purist, it was really, really good and I like it better than the other one. (Oh, go on... try it. You might like it, too!)

Cousin Hava is about to get Hava'd by Trusty Sidekick.

Told ya...

"Hi Family!"

"Let's tickle Grandma's toes!"

"Let's pull on Dad's beard!"

Let's give the little tyke some payback tickles.

Passover cooking is a family affair.

Also, a time for teaching the proper way to use a potato peeler.

Trusty Sidekick is soloing with the peeler.

A pot full of matzoh balls which Alex created.

Look quick because this is the only time she will wear the dress.

The food is cooking and it is time to brush up on the haggadah.

The table with Grandma Bernice's good china.

A nice touch, that flower, dontchathink? This is a combination Seder. Jeannine made the flowers and Grandma provided the plates.

Ok, let's get started.

The kids version of wine. It was better than their version of whine.

Rachael get's Huston'd. She bit on my version of the Ma nish ta nah...*

* A Jewish man is waiting in line to be knighted by the Queen of England. He is supposed to kneel and recite a sentence in Latin.

When it comes his turn, the Queen taps him on the shoulders with the sword -- and in the panic of excitement he forgets the Latin line. Thinking quickly, he recites the only other line he knows in a foreign language, which he remembers from the Passover Seder: "Mah nishtana ha-lailah ha-zeh mi-kol ha-leilot."

The puzzled Queen turns to her advisor and asks, "Why is this knight different from all other knights?"

(Oh, come on... give me a break... this is all to serious, dontchathink?)
