I shared a little about our Hanukkah celebrations in last week’s Currently post, but as it’s 8 days of fun, there is a lot more to share!
The kids take turns lighting the menorah each night.
Since Gabbie had dance and got home late on the 2nd night, she got to do her own lighting.
We went to Hanukkah on Ice. Mitchell Schwartz from the Chiefs was there to light the menorah.
The kids enjoyed the ice skating!
Zachary wanted me to take a picture of him in the middle. What’s with the orange photo bombers though?
I had some fun taking pictures of the lights.
Gabbie and friends:
Back at home…
How awesome is Gabbie’s sweater? You can flip the sequins to light each candle!
Presents from my brother and his family: Gabbie got 5D painting sets, Simon got a Roblox gift card, and Zachary got a trip back to iFly! My brother also gave our gift to my niece and nephew that same night so they called us and we got to talk to them for a bit, which was fun.
I didn’t take any pictures. Gabbie got an essential oils bracelet, Zachary got a few books, and Simon got a Rubick’s Cube set which everyone has been playing with. We also got an extra surprise gift from my blog friend Leslie who sent us a copy of a book she reviewed called Hello Universe.
Gabbie got these flip flops with the name of her dance school on them (as well as a backpack that wasn’t in yet). Zachary got another game, this one called Decipher. Simon got a Lego set.
I cut Gabbie out of this picture because she was closing her eyes. All three kids got their yearly calendars. Gabbie also got a puffy keychain, Simon got socks, and Zachary got the Lorax DVD!
We went to our friends’ Hanukkah party and I love taking pictures of all of their menorahs lit up in the window!
That’s a wrap on this year’s Hanukkah celebration!
