Guess what I forgot?
I completely blanked out on Hanukkah photos. I don't know why. Maybe it's because it was such a stressful week with the plumbing issues (and guess who was plunging again this morning?). Or because the Boy is acting like such a PITA that I just didn't get into the 'holiday spirit' until the holiday was over. And then there's the whole new camera learning curve, especially with the software which is WAY too complicated. But whatever, here are the photos from the last day.
Before we lit the candles. Note that there is still gelt left. Now? No such luck. Isn't the tin foil so pretty on my sideboard? Believe me, it saves furniture regardless of how ugly it is.
Let me tell you about all the different hanukiyot. Starting at the right, because we're Jewish and we do things backwards, we have a ceramic one I made at one of those paint your own pottery places when the kids were little. In the back row, the next one is the Boy's hanukiyah, and in front of it, the little one is the Girls. In the middle back row is the one I bought in Toledo, Spain. In front of that, the long one was mine from my childhood. Moving along, the silver one is our travel hanukiyot, and on the very right is the ceramic one the Girl made when I was making mine. I think she was about 8 when she made it, as we still lived in California.
After we lit the candles. Quite the conflagration, eh? Did you notice our large collection of dreidls? We have all kinds, but my favorite are the big wooden ones. Those have a great spin on them.
