...On this the First Night of Hanukkah...

Almost all the gang was here. We were just missing Steph's boyfriend, Rob, who had to be home with his family...he'll be here next week. Tracy, John and their roommate Kimber and her precious little 3 year old daughter, Teagan, all came over to celebrate the first night of Hanukkah with us, whether or not they celebrated it in their own home.

To our surprise, Teagan came in excited about us lighting candles and knew all about dreidles! Nothing surprised her. We figured she must have learned about it in her preschool. Pretty cool!

I just love this photo of Teagan watching the candles!

The day was nice and easy. Steph taught Frank and me a new game called Catan and I spent most of the day getting ready for our little Hanukkah party. After dinner we opened gifts and then had doughnut holes for dessert (doughnuts are fried in oil - a tradition for the holiday)

Thanks for stopping by. Stay warm!
