Happy Hannukah


It's 4:10 in the afternoon. The light is beginning to fade. In just a few moments two very excited children are going to come running through the door, and a little while after that it will be time to kindle the first of the Hannukah lights.

Happy Hannukah to all who are celebrating tonight. May all of your weeks be happy and bright (and may all your sufganiyot be light!)



PS In retrospect, the effects of giving her a magic wand at the same time that he received a ball should have been predictable. Isn't the 11th commandment "thou shall not play baseball in the living room"? Luckily, we ended it before anything got broken LOL.

I believe that commandment is "thou shalt not play with ANY ball in the house". At least that's what it is at our house.

I'm very stuffed. Latkes. So freaking good. Tomorrow is the sufganiyot. I can't handle both in the same night. My son thinks his stomach is going to explode. :-)

Happy Chanukkah to you, too Robin.
