Chag Purim Sameach! Happy Purim!
In celebration of Purim 5779/2019 here’s a look at both this year’s family costume and those from years past. I admit that while my wife, Carrie, LIVES for this day (and is the artistic director and master costume designer), I sometimes find this process exhausting. Still, I can’t argue with the finished products. Go Team Bornstein!
2019 – Evolution!
2018 – Lounge singer!
2017 – Baby Bird!
Carrie was pregnant this year as a gestational surrogate (check out her blog about the experience) and wanted to make use of her belly (which she has done in the past as well…it’s a good prop.) The older two kids were birds as well. Our youngest is dressed up as a worm, although some people suggested he looked like something else…Whoops.
2016 – Trophy Family!
I’m a little fuzzy on the years from here…
Bornstein Pest Control!
Lobster in a Pot!
Publishers Clearing House! (This is where it all started!)
There are a few others, but you get the idea.
