mommytom, I didn't start looking yet. I once saw an adorable little chick/duck costume. My ds will be around 9 months then. I need to start searching. What have you thought of/seen so far?

little babies are always cute as clowns, but the hats usually annoy them . my youngest is 2 now so she'll probably be a queen but my babies should be born by then but i don't think i'll dress them up , they'll only be a few weeks old!

Purim (Hebrew: פורים Pûrîm "lots", from Akkadian pūru) is a joyous Jewish holiday that commemorates the deliverance of all the Jews at the time who were living under the authority of the Persian Empire, resulting from the Babylonian captivity (after Persia had conquered Babylonia), from Haman's plot to exterminate them, as recorded in the Biblical Book of Esther. It is characterized by public recitation of the Book of Esther, giving mutual gifts of food and drink, giving charity to the poor, and a celebratory meal (Esther 9:22); other customs include drinking alcohol, wearing of masks and costumes, and public celebration. Purim is celebrated annually on the 14th of the Hebrew month of Adar. (In cities that were walled in the time of Joshua, including Jerusalem, Purim is celebrated on the 15th of the month, known as Shushan Purim). As with all Jewish holidays, Purim begins at sundown
