Twas the fifth night of Chanukah and all through the house we were cooking latkes, stacking presents, talking, eating and everything else we normally do at our family plus Chanukah party. Friends make up the “plus.”
I’ll be honest, having Thanksgiving and Chanukah collide left me tired! It was tight with just two days before the dinners. But we had fun, and lit up all our menorahs, each having five candles. Our friend Nancy, her first time at our Chanukah celebration, couldn’t believe that we’d light them all. I explained that in past years we’ve done more. Last year it was especially nice since our party was on the eighth night, all the candles were lit.
Here are some shots of our party. One note. Christopher, our older grandson, was extremely camera shy. However, I did get his mom to let me take a good picture of her!
