first menorah

December 20th, 2011

So many things to blog about so little time. Really. Working all week and packing for a trip plus I came down with some random bug to top it off. Had a great few weeks with visits from my mom AND dad and Matthew finally had his first day off since Thanksgiving a few days ago. Now we are trying to make Channukah happen.

We had our little latke party on Saturday but I only took 1 pic. Its Asher and Tim doing Channukah sticker crafts.

Not sure who had more fun (Timmy)

Besides the latkes and insane amounts of food, including Matthews first ever brisket Asher received a few gifts. Without meaning to there was a bit of a musical theme as Danny and Jen got him a real drum and then Ramona showed up with a kazoo.

oh the kazoo. Its currently missing. as in –

“Mommy, can’t find my kazoo. IS MISSING!”

I think it might appear sometime after the new year, maybe when I’m away for work.

Tonight being the first night of Channukah we lit the menorah and he was pretty excited and wanted to light ALL the candles.

He got to open the first of his 8 gifts, which in reality should have been the last because it was BY FAR the nicest of the things we got him but we’re heading out of town and its also the heaviest.

Its this year’s Hess Truck and man, if you are still looking for a gift for a 2.5 year old truck lover go get one. He played with it until bedtime.

    Oh, The Hess Truck. Three is already asking if his Papa G got him this year’s for Christmas. Its a staple under our tree.

    Did Asher eat the latkes? I can’t get Three to even try one. Which on one hand – great, more for me. On the other – come on dude! Its a LATKE!
