Hanukkah–Nights 5-8

Thursday, December 21, 2017


Continuing from where I left off!


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

This one goes outside.

The kids got their gifts too.

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


She also made latkes in a casserole, rather than individual pancakes.



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

And we lit our menorah at home – Zachary’s turn.

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!

The kids got t-shirts as their gifts.


Once again, we were at my parents’ house. Everyone helped light the candles.

Family picture!

The kids got Disney pins, either to keep or trade on our next Disney trip!
