My gift for Chanukah

Friday, December 19, 2014

As most people know I am Jewish, however my hubby is not. I grew up with a Chanukah tree and she grew up with a Christmas tree. So in our house we celebrate both Chanukah and Christmas. Most of my family who were Jewish are either gone or no longer really participate in Chanukah anymore so hubby and the kids always get me something for Chanukah and this year is no different. this is what I got for Chanukah this year.

    When I was an 8 year old, I lived in St Louis! My little girl friend next door was Jewish, I was Catholic. We got our parents to observe both Holidays! We learned each others traditions! I still celebrate with all my friends! Most righteous! Chanukah Sameach!

    A very beautiful Star of David. My son in law's mother is Jewish and his father more Am. Indian tradition. It makes for lots of traditions and acceptance of different beliefs.
Happy Chanukah. emoticon

First day of Chanukah

Wednesday, December 17, 2014

I called dad late to wish him a Happy Chanukah and the 4 kids were home to light the candles it would be great if this continued, but with work schedules the way they are it is hard. No one calls to wish us a Happy Chanukah anymore but all the people who ever did are past on now. My family isn't small but out of the kids of my mother and her sister I am the only one who is still Jewish, the only one who lights the menorah, it is sad and I am afraid none of my kids will continue this when I am gone. I really miss my mother....Anyway Happy Chanukah to you and yours.

    It can amaze you how kids will continue some traditions... or at the very least cherish the memories with you. emoticon

    i hope your Chanukah is full of light and even a few latkes...our family observes one way or another, and the kids all get gifts and gelt. I even had to track two latkes.

    I am really sorry, but I was just talking to my second cousin the other day She sent me a book (family tree) She said (1 family name now and more to come) But sorry the point is is that we are also afraid that the kids don't want to continue in the traditions But for us all we can do is to show them and in the end it will have to be up to them I grew up learning about the Jewish holiday (my other grandmothers neighbor) I love the prayers and I will pray that your children or at least 1 will carry on I love to learn about what others do in their religion emoticon I also learned from my second grandma to knit I have 3 daughters and none what to do crafting (I knit, crochet, counted cross stitch, ect...) So it also looks like I will be the last And Happy Chanukah emoticon Thank you for posting ! emoticon

    We had Chanukah with new friends tonight And it was wonderful. There were two lechters, prayers. Latkes and a lot of good food and conversation. My step children have kept the traditions and do not over complicate it or try to make it a Jewish vers

celebrated Robyn's birthday

Monday, December 15, 2014

Our oldest daughter by birth turns 22 on the 22nd and we celebrated it today because this is the last day she has off until after Christmas. We took her to dinner with her best friend and her boyfriend. Then we went and did some shopping. Sometimes it seems like it was a life ago giving birth to her and other times it seems like just yesterday. Wish my mom was here to see how she has turned out, she would be so proud.

hubby went to Christmas party

Sunday, December 14, 2014

Originally hubby thought she could bring someone(s) to the party so she signed up thinking her and I could get away from the kids for a bit. After signing up she was told no one could come it was only for employes and because she signed up she had to go cause they were picking names for secret Santa and someone would have already gotten her name. I will admit I laughed and thought it was funny, she didn't see the humor lol. Anyway she made brownies and took a present for the name she pulled and hope she has a nice time.
