I hope I get a harmonica...

...on this lovely, lovely Hanukkah!

On Sunday I went to Ella's house for Hanukkah. It involved lighting candles and singing. But it wasn't for a birthday. Ella's mommy shared the story of Hanukkah as we lit the Hanukia (that's the Menorah, or the fancy candle holder). We ate yummy latkes. My friends Abe and Alma also were at the party. Ella happily shared some of her dreidles with me and I took home a blue one. Mommy and Daddy made chocolate covered apricots and wrapped them in shiny foil for gelt.

O Christmas Tree

Yoshi the Logger

How lovely are thy branches! Especially when they are cut off and made into a little Yoshi-sized wreath! Here I am with Daddy holding the tree that we cut down. Daddy tied the tree onto the car with string, but something happened when we got on the freeway. The tree flew off. Mommy carefully drove backwards on the side of the road and Daddy rescued the tree. I told Daddy that next time I will hold the string so the tree won't fall off again.

Every year Mommy makes wreaths using extra branches from the tree. She made a big one for our front door. Daddy made a small wreath that hangs on the door to my room. Yay! It smells good.
