We survived!

We made it through the weekend!

And what a weekend it was. Seriously, THE best.

At the moment I just have a few photos of the party (translate that to over 1000 on-line if you're interested!), but I will bore you with the ceremony and other mini party when I get those.

Sam did AMAZING in Synagogue. It was one of those unbelievable jaw-dropping tear-jerking proud moments a parent feels once or twice in their lifetime. He had to sing a portion of the Torah and all the prayers with it. All in Hebrew and all front of over 300 people.

Another overwhelming moment of the entire weekend, was to be surrounded by so many of our amazing family and friends. And the efforts they all made to be with us. Some coming without their families from Israel. Others cutting their holiday short to be with us (REALLY appreciate that, Manda x) Others only able to be with us for part of it, but knowing how much it would mean to us, so did it anyway (seriously, Cari and Nicky, you guys coming up for Saturday was beyond the call of friendship). And EVERYONE for being so enthusiastic and playing their part in making it such an amazing weekend.

Mum had a smile a mile long all weekend and the little girls never stopped dancing.

A truly special weekend in so many ways that I can not even begin to describe. It's all over now. But the memories will last forever.
