On Chanukah we light the menorah to commemorate the eight days the oil in the temple lasted...the miracle of light, thus the festival of lights...As today was the second of the eight days of Chanukah we lit two candles using the third or middle candle to do so and recited the ritual blessings over them. Grandpa helped the grand children light the candles. Grandma read the story of Chanukah to the grand kids. Our grandson so appreciated receiving his gift, this 3/4 sized real guitar and here he is carefully putting away his guitar pick.
He and his grandfather made beautiful music together.
My grand daughter loved the new baby doll she received.
She designed it, cut it out, colored it and dressed it herself. I helped with the sewing.
A clothes designer at five!
Stew and sour dough bread for dinner.
Chocolate macaroons for dessert.
Family fun, laughs and love.
And they are spending the night
so I get them again in the morning!!!!
Color me Happy!
