Happy Hanukkah and Winter!

Holiday time is here. And with it we had our first local snow of the season last weekend.

As you can see Lilah wanted to get outside and play so quickly she didn't even wait to get her jacket and hat on! (OK that is not exactly what happened, we were really outside for a photoshoot for about three minutes, but it makes a better story).

She really loved the snow and hopefully next time it will stick around more than 24 hours so we can get make some snowmen and have a snowball fight.



Other than that, the week has been fairly quiet, gearing up for the holidays. Yesterday we had our last music class of the session (boo!) but Lilah did better than she ever has, following all the instructors directions and even clapping for the other kids when they did well. I was quite proud of her.

Then we headed off to my company X-mas party where Lilah got her face "partially" painted (as you can see) and I got to introduce her around.
We ended the night when Lilah and Jason lit the candles for the first night of Hanukkah and we read her the story of the holiday. It is amazing how much she remembers, and she was able to tell us that last night we lit two candles which means tonight we will light three. Amazing!

This morning Lilah helped me prep for our semi-annual Hanukkah party at Tara's house. Although her help was mostly "mixer" and "tester" she is getting the hang of cooking with Mommy.
Speaking of the party - off to get ready! Have a great Hanukkah and we will be back later this week with more photos and more candles!
