Oh Chanukah Oh Chanukah!!

I am finally excited for Chanukah! The chanukiot are all set up, the oil and wicks purchased, candles will be used by the two youngest. We have dreidels and chocolate gelt. I will be making oven latkes tonight – and we bought doughnuts for the boys. Dunkin Donuts was picked clean, so we didn’t have much to choose from. It will be enough tho that they will feel spoiled.

Are you a sap like me? When I watch my boys make the brachot and light their own chanukiot, I tear up. Every. Single. Time.  Even just thinking about it now puts a hitch in my chest and some excess moisture in the corner of my eye.

It was Chanukah two years ago that I brought the boys down to Monsey for the very first time to see where their new home would be. I remember they stayed here with the KoD and I was farmed out down the street!! How the time has flown by.

OK, I am off to peel potatoes….. Chag Sameach, Chappy Chanukah!!
