The Purim Contest Winners!

After Purim, we had a great idea. Why not have a costume contest? We’d have parents submit photos of their kids in adorable Purim costumes and then we’d choose a winner and post the photo on the blog and send them a prize. Sounds perfect, right?

Well, you try narrowing down what felt like a gazillion cute babies into just one. I mean, really, what were we thinking? How do you decide whether the dinosaur, ladybug, or sock monkey is cutest? THEY’RE ALL CUTE, PEOPLE. We have some adorable baby Kvellers out there and we’re not afraid to say it.

So we finally narrowed it down to our top three, after much deliberation. These kids are so cute they’re practically edible (and since one of them is dressed as a
, she kind of is!) Thank you to everyone for participating, and we can’t wait to see what the kids look like next Purim!

And the winners are…

Michal Frumkin, 7 1/2 months old, from Germantown, Maryland

Elijah Rediger, age 2, from Bexley, Ohio

Noah Baumgarten (it was his 1st birthday on Purim!) from Kettering, Ohio
