I vote for more "Ch" in Chanukah.

Today we celebrated Chanukah with my family. With my crazy work schedule and the fact that Chanukah came sooner than I had imagined, we didn't have time to go to my mom's house and enjoy her cooking. Instead, we headed over to Chompies for some delicious latkes and I helped myself to a nice bowl of matzo ball soup...yum!

Afterward, we went to my house to open up gifts. Every year I am reminded of a family video of my brother and I at Chanukah 1988 at my parents home. In the video, I am literally counting all of my gifts and trying to see if I have more than my brother. In that particular video, I did.

My kids aren't at that age yet, where the amount of gifts they get really matter, nor does it matter if they received clothes rather than toys. In fact, Little A is still in love with a shirt that my mom got for him. I don't think I took a picture of him holding it up, but he definitely exclaimed "Cool!" when he opened it, and he even refers to it as his "cool" shirt now.

The D man received much of the same things that Little A received, but in a smaller version of it.

It was nice to be able to spend the night with my family and enjoy our special night of Chanukah.

More gifts....

Transformers.....of course.
