Even though our crafting didn’t really happen this year, we’ve been enjoying the season.
Anna went on her very first field trip on a “real school bus” with her winter camp and tried skating for the very first time. Too bad that we were not there to take a picture. We also went to San Jose “Christmas in the Park” and enjoyed beautiful animated displays there as well as in our own neighborhood.
We had a few of Anna’s friends over for a “Hanukkah winter party”. I read the kids the story of Hanukkah, we decorated cookies, played a dreidel and made Christmas tree ornaments. Interestingly, everyone knew how to play dreidel – they learned it in school together with a song to go with it.
I am very grateful this year – for my family, my health, my friends and for having enough for all we need and for most of what we want. I am truly blessed.
