Not In Jersey: Building Our Sukkah Building Our Sukkah - Not In Jersey

Building Our Sukkah

Sunday, September 30, 2012

Ten days after Rosh Hashanah comes Yom Kippur, and 5 days after Yom Kippur comes Sukkot. It’s a very hectic time on our calendar! Sukkot is so much fun though and such a great way to celebrate fall! Last week we started building our Sukkah (and by we I mean Dave…and his little helpers). The Sukkah is in our back yard, and for a whole week we eat in it. The kids and I really want to sleep in it, but I don’t think we’re brave enough!

Here come the helpers!

Zachary’s job was apparently to hold onto those corner pieces the whole time!

After the frame went up, this happened. I guess he was a little scared!

Next the walls went up. I love that the decorations are already there from last year (and the year before, and the year before that). Of course, we’ll add more!

We left the Sukkah all week without the roof. Today, the roof went up!

Not only does he build Sukkahs, my husband also did this today:

These next two days are holiday days where I am not online, but I’ll be back on Tuesday night with an overview of our decorations!
