Friday night we went to Uncle Justin's and Aunt Audrey's with Memere and learned a little bit about lighting the Menorah. The kids were so happy to have Aunt Audrey teach them how to say the prayer and she even let them light 2 candles each. She told them a brief history of why the Menorah is lit and what it represents. After dinner we got to eat jelly donuts and play Dradle. The kids loved every minute of it! I wish I had gotten pictures of all 4 cousins spinning the Dradle and eating chocolate coins.
Saturday we had our annual Christmas Cookie Bake with Auntie Kay and Uncle Monster. Every year I am surprised with how much the kids actually help. This year both big kids were excited to be in the kitchen.
Julie rolled out the sugar cookie dough over and over.
After a strenuous night of cookie making, the big kids snuggled in to watch a movie with Uncle Monster. Not a bad way to end the day.
All the kids had a great time. They always have a blast together.Thanks Tania for hosting and having us! Your new house is beautiful!
