worrying about post-holiday letdown...


only one more day of channuka left. It is always a rude awakening when, after eight days of opening a present every night, suddenly - no more presents!

our house is ready for Chanunka!





The Menorahs are out and the candles are ready. I decided to torture the girls a little by moving their wrapped gifts out in the open. They can look but not touch and they ask me a million times a day what is in the boxes. The Dora wrapping is Jena's pile, the snowman wrapping is Stef's and the mixed assortment in my gifts from the girls. All are things they have found in the house and wrapped for me. It's the thought that counts! A few pictures of everyone dressed up for the piano recital.

Piano Fall 2008

Here is the latest piano recital. I hope you enjoy not only the playing but also get a kick out of listening to Hatikvah; the national anthem of Isreal, being played in front of a christmas tree. If you listen closely you can also hear Jena, being ever so quiet, asking over and over for her sticker book. My fault since I told her she could have it after Stef finished playing and I wasn't clear that Stef was playing two pieces. video

snuggly girls





both girls are especially snuggly in their footie PJs. So much so that at our house we call the PJs "snugglies". A few after bathtime pictures to enjoy
