This Hannukah was one to remember, that's for sure. Sadly the bad outweighed the good, but in the spirit of moving on I'd like to share this:
Isn't he sweet? This tiny fellow lives at Beit HaIkar (Farmer's House), a living farm type place at Kibbutz Beerot Yitzhak, not too far from where I live, close enough in fact to pop over with the kids this morning when our other plans fell through. This guy was born literally five minutes before this photo was taken. Five minutes earlier and we'd actually have seen the birth. Amazing, isn't it? (Excuse the slightly blurry quality of this photo - I have sharper ones but they show, err, evidence, that the birth isn't quite finished yet and my 9 year old swears that anyone who sees them will be scarred for life. He was more ewww gross than wow miracle of life. Such a 9 year old...) . Have a wonderful weekend everyone - I know I certainly will - I'm off to the Jacob's Ladder Winter Weekend bright and early tomorrow morning! Even more fun, I'm going on my own, Jay and the kids gave me a ticket as a gift. I can't tell you how excited I am, what fun to be able to see (and of course hear) as much music as I like without anyone under 5 feet tall with a familial claim on my attention (I used to say under 4 feet tall but the dang kid keeps growing LOL) needing anything from me or complaining that they're bored and want to go outside! Still better, I'm heading up there a few hours early for a bit of a photo-safari with a few friends, should the weather gods oblige. I've got my eye on a number of potential Photoverse location shoots and boy can I use a mental break, these past few weeks have been one long Calgon take me away moment.
