Eight Hanukkah Candle Lighting

Ah, the last candle lighting of Hanukkah.  Tonight we went out to eat early at Gullivers and had pizza, chicken strips, soups, and appetizers.  Then we came home and lit candles.  I always love the eighth night, when all the candles are blazing.  You can actually feel the heat in the living room.

All in all, a subdued if not enjoyable Hanukkah this year. Quick story – last week, Justin made a gingerbread house at school.  He brought it home, and we had to go out for something and left it in the living room.  When we came back, we found its scraps on the floor, having been eaten by our dog, Eyeeore.  Justin felt very bad.  So today, Ethan’s class made gingerbread houses (I was there to help too) and Ethan gave his gingerbread house to Justin, to make him feel better.  Somewhere in the pictures (linked below) you’ll see a picture of Justin opening his new gingerbread house with a big smile on his face.

Saturday, the last full day of Hanukkah, we would normally bake cookies, but I think we’re going to be busy, between haircuts and having to wait for Comcast to come and fix our perpetually broken cable service.  But now the kids are on winter break, so we might bake cookies later this week.  If we do, I’ll blog about it. 🙂

Pictures of the generally good times being had by all are here.
