Enjoying the remaining 7 nights of Hanukkah...

Apologies for the lack of posts recently. I've been ridiculously busy the past few weeks... have barely had time to breathe, let alone blog! Winter break will be starting in 9(?) days and then I should have time to catch up on blogging and write some "real" posts. For now, here are some photos from Hanukkah which was extraordinarily fun this year, thanks to our Little Love.

Photos were taken from Hanukkah at Sarah & Ella's house, the Hanukkah celebration at the local JCC (Adam LOVED the Le.gos!), Hanukkah with Mom/Grandma & Marty, and the last night at Hanukkah (again with M&M - Mom & Marty). Special thanks to Grandma & Marty for the wonderful Hanukkah presents - the tail-wagging, bone-chewing, barking doggie was AWESOME!

Adam checking out his new train table (obviously unbuilt) - his "biggest" Hanukkah present, literally! I love his little face - filled wint obvious delight - here.

Adam and Sarah intently watching Sarah's daddy, Jon, light the menorah.

The 3 kiddos playing together (the only photo where I got them all together!). Adam LOVED the ball popper - probably played with it for over an hour. He received one as a 1st birthday present but wasn't too interested in it then. Hmm... maybe we can find it now?!?

Sir Brix-a-Lot (that's really his name) bought thousands (literally) of Legos to the Hanukkah Celebration. Adam spent 2-3 hours playing with them... which was cool except he didn't participate in any of the other Hanukkah festivities... I think we'll hit the legos last next year!

Grandma's favorite!!! Adam collected all of these transparent legos for Grandma and me - he was so excited to find them all!
Look at the Lego Menorah & Dreidel! How cool is that?!? Except the dreyfel fell apart a minute after Adam gave it back to Sir-Brix-a-Lot so I felt kinda bad. Oops... well, he was allowing kids to hold it!

Making sure Grandma is lighting the Menorah right

I LOVE Adam's smile here as he was clapping (after the prayer, I guess?). Cool table reflection, too.

Opening up Marty & Grandma's present...

... a new doggie! Yay!!!

"Look at my new doggy, Mommy!"

Checking new doggy out...

Last night of Hanukkah!

Check out Marty's super-cool Hanukkah glasses!

Hope everyone who celebrates had a wonderful Hanukkah, too! =)

FYI - don't you dare pull that ball popper out, not unless you want to go insane. :)

Looks like lots of fun! Whenever Teo sees a ball popper at someone else's house, he goes nuts for it. Funny.
