Fusible Bead Sukkah Decorations

Back in the dark ages before Pinterest,
(let's not even begin to discuss the REAL dark ages, before the internet)
those of us in the Jewish blogging community worked hard to share our project ideas and such.

I read this blog post from Carolyn and was enchanted with the idea of using fusible beads to decorate our sukkah! (check it out, hers are amazing!)

We've been doing this kind of decorating since then, but this year the kids have been very into these beads, so we were a little more ambitious:

The "Sukkot" sign is from a previous year!

We hang them with zip-ties.

Bring on the Sukkah Building

Putting up a sukkah has always been a family project.
Even when we weren't all available to help.
Even when it was hard. And when it was harder.
We've only really missed one year.

The sukkah is fragile.
It's meant to be that way.
Life is fragile. And yet we keep building.

I love the simplicity of the reminder to go outside.
To breathe the fresh air.
To live...

And so we build....

Yes, he's showing that he's almost as tall as the sukkah

Sammy always in our hearts...
