Well everyone, tonight is the last night of Hannukah 2009! it is also Shabbat, by the way- Shabbat Shalom! Harris got his fair share of fire and flames tonight, with the 2 Shabbat candles, as well as the 9 candles on our Menorah! I have really enjoyed Hannukah this year. Finally, we have at least 1 child who is old enough to (maybe not understand but at least) enjoy the holiday. He definately understands what a "present" is now, and what "gelt" is also- that is for sure!
Tonight's final gift was another handmade gift by me. I made Harris a set of bean bags with number appliques on them from 1 to 10. I REALLY enjoyed making this gift for him. I raided my remnant stash, and even managed to have enough fabric left over to make a sturdy drawstring bag to keep them in! Bean bags are such a versitile and open ended toy. They will certainly keep Harris (and now Stella too) entertained well into their early tweens. These toys are also INSANELY EASY to make.
