ethan's first hanukkah.


Yesterday was the first night of Ethan's very first Hanukkah.

Our families celebrate both Christmas and Hanukkah and, for me, Hanukkah is always the peaceful distraction from the chaos of Christmas. This year was no different. It was wonderful to push aside the ever-growing pile of unwrapped Christmas gifts taking over our dining room table and make room for the latkes. My mom helped Ethan light the menorah and helped him as he opened two pairs of cargo shorts and two equally adorable sweaters.

Tonight, the second night, we read Hanukkah Bugs and played with the singing, dancing dalmatian that he opened this evening. The holidays this year have been wonderful, a sneak-preview of all of our years to come with Ethan in our lives. (It was also pretty great to inhale copious amounts of latkes as last year, with Ethan just a few weeks in utero, I wasn't able to eat much more than ginger ale!)
