Last night was the first night and after candle lighting, we gave the kids some gifts and played dreidel.
Today, M had a Channukah party at school. He was so excited that I came and he participated beautifully, singing all the songs with his Morahs.
|M is super happy to be having a Channukah party|
|M "reading" the song sheet that has all the lyrics|
|M enjoying donuts. His baby brother slept through the party!|
This evening we also had a party at our shul. There was pizza and latkes as well as art projects and a magician.
The boys still need quite a few reminders about fire safety and staying away from matches and candles, but otherwise the kids are all really enjoying the holiday and overdosing on chocolate "gelt".
Tomorrow I am going to Y's school to tell the students a bit about Channukah, and then my inlaws are coming to spend the weekend with us with yet more gifts for the kids. What's not to love?
Wishing you all a "lichtige" Channukah!
