Chanook-ah the North

Chanukah officially starts Sunday night, but in my house it is starting tonight! Two reasons: 1) Nat is coming home and 2) Mom and Dad are visiting and 3) I really feel like making latkes. (Max told me he looks forward to them all year! So there is a huge bowl of huge potatoes sitting on the counter, ready to be scraped. Nat also loves my latkes so, it will be a very satisfying dinner to cook.)
Oh, sorry, that was three reasons.

We are also expecting an S-load of snow, the first big one of the season. We’ve already had a few dustings, just enough to make the yard look like a big pfefferneuse cookie. But this one has all the superintendents freaked, so all the schools seem to be closing early. My parents are already on their way, so scared are they of the big snowfall, oy vey oy vey.

I have presents for a few days. There’s some very clever things I’ve bought for the boys, I must say. I am so psyched to present some of those presents. I got Nat some great music (Dumbo soundtrack!) and The Fox and the Hound, an old Disney he does not have! Also, it’s on video (he hates the new technologies, just like his father). I can’t say what I got for Max for who knows who may be reading. Benj, I got a really funny tee shirt and some other stuff. I got Ned hmm hmm hmm and also hmm hmm.

I’m also making brisket; got a huge hunk of bloody meat in the fridge. Gotta make something different for Dad and Hannah who won’t eat meat.

That’s all for now.


Happy Chanukah or Hanukkah not sure why two spellings… and lots of snow already!!

How much did you get? I think we got about 6 inches or so. Everything was closed here too. My landlord managed to get in a small accident on his way home from wherever he was. But he’s okay.

Hey Susan- Henry loves his Disney too. As we replace some videos with dvds, would Nat like the videos? I’d be happy to send them to you. I also frequent a kids’ consignment shop that often has Disney videos if there’s ever a certain one that you’re looking for. Happy Chanukah!
