On the 5th night, we had a party at our friends’ house. We lit our menorahs at home first.

At our friends’ house, multiple people lit menorahs and it was pretty!

On the 6th night, we went to the Plaza menorah lighting. They light a big menorah and then there was a fire show.

Simon got Pokemon cards and socks and he was thrilled with both! He had just been telling me that same day that his socks are too small.

Zachary got an SD Card for his camera and Monopoly for the Switch. Gabbie got a shirt she can wear to dance and a black hoodie. No pictures of them from the 6th night!

The 7th night brought us to a new location – my parents’ house in Florida!
