Stuff I Love

I just love this time of year. There is so much to be thankful for.

At our house, each person gets one night to light candles and give gifts.

Here are the little girls. They received handmade vests for their teddy bears, made by my oldest daughter.

This is the family working on latkes. Even though they are labor intensive, everyone agrees that they're worth it!

My two oldest posing together after gifts were given. Even little things have become something to be thankful for and appreciate. All parties were low in funds this year but were creative and found ways show each other how special they are.

And, as I type it is snowing like crazy outside. I have a big cup of my favorite Ginger Snappish tea and am really enjoying reflecting on what a wonderful time it is.

Looks like wonderful memories are being made, and lots of love shared. Thank you for the small peek into your holiday celebration.

I wish I knew how you made snow fall on your blog... and you always have cool images to share... I am wanting to get into your mind and know the things you know about blogging. LOL!

Thanks for the heads up, Jennifer. I never would have thought it would be so easy.

I love the reflection of your little girl's face in the window as she watches your eldest light the candle. Precious!

We love to make latkes. I am glad she was able to get the vests made for the teddy bears. That was a wonderful gift. Did she finish the teddy bear?

Happy Hanukkah!!
