I am so sorry I have not been able to respond to all the beautiful blog comments, Facebook messages, tweets and emails. Please let this post serve as a thank you from the deepest recces of my heart.
Thank you all for sharing this experience with us and more importantly for the incredible love and support you have shown us. It's been amazing to meet so many of you (you know who you are) around the country -- at Malcha Mall, at Holy Bagel, at the Gas Station outside of Beit Shemesh, on the street corner in Ramat Shiloh and a shout out to the people that came up to Hubby in the supermarket yesterday (HI YAEL!). Hubby called me and said today only 1 person recognized him, lol -- he really is so shy and does the videos for me, for shalom bayis (read: happy wife, happy life :-). I thank you all for letting us know you are watching and that you love it. We love you!
We are feverishly editing together the next full length episode for your viewing pleasure, which will pick up right where we left off, at the NBN airport arrival ceremony waiting for Prime Minster Bibi Netanyahu to greet us. In the meantime OUR LIFT CAME!!! So we are unpacking boxes like crazy trying to set up our kitchen and ding room as well as the kids rooms in time for our first Shabbos in our new house. Until now we have been spending the last two Shabbosim with my brother-in-law and sister-in-law and family since we had nothing and really wanted to be together.
In the mean time be sure to pass on all the videos to your friends and family and anyone you think will enjoy them. When you "tune in" next week, Wednesday September 5, 7pm EST you'll watch as we drive up to our new home for the first time, hit the Nefesh B'Nefesh New Olim Fair in Jerusalem, (where we receive our Israeli Identification Cards!!), and hit a few pizza places (yup we are STILL eating pizza), in between navigating multiple government agencies. With tremendous gratitude and love and best wishes for a great Shabbos.
Jamie and Hubby and Kiddies
PS. And here's a recipe just cause I love you... My Southern Stye (Baked) Chicken. It's what I am making for our first Shabbos. Hubby thinks he bought breadcrumbs at the store today. OY VEY, help!
Note: In place of McCormick Fried Chicken Seasoning you can use any chicken or steak seasoning or simply rub on some paprika and garlic and onion powders.
