The best thing about Hanukkah is having my two children and my parents at my house at the same time. Seth looked so much better than he had during his vet school finals! I think he is also happy to have his sister home. We miss her!
I had a "Jewish Christmas Eve" with friends -- that's a movie followed by Chinese food. We saw the movie "Wild" and really liked it. It's quite faithful to the book.
And Christmas dinner with my in-laws is always relaxing and fun. My mother-in-law has the most amazing Snow Village that is set up on every horizontal surface she can find.
I'm ready to do nothing for a few days -- no cooking, no cleaning, no planning!
I hope you also are having a wonderful holiday!
