We’ve made it through another 2 nights on Hanukkah.
They landed on the weekend which was really nice. We could open toys early and have plenty of time during the day to enjoy them.
It was nice to see them all off their iPads for such long periods of time.
Jack spent hours building two lego sets he got. He proved himself a master builder. When a piece was missing, he went to his lego bin and found a substitution with ease.
All the kids spent time mixing the many Imaginex toys we have acquired over the years with the new plethora of recently additions.
Being off their iPads paved the way for other activities too. The younger 3 rediscovered their activity books and spent lots of time coloring, connecting dots, finding words and more.
In fact, Sam and Aaron have had an explosion of interest in writing since Kindergarten started.
Oh yeah, and here is what Jack did with the boxes we had leftover from all the gifts.
We got to play the Dreidel game and eat our winnings.
And finally, the Hanukkah Bears showed up religiously.
Last night Adam and I booked a sitter and hit two holiday parties. Afterwards, as I was laying in bed almost asleep I realized the Hanukkah Bears were not staged. I got out of bed at midnight and did a quick scene.
Two more days. The kitchen floors are started to get so crowded with new toys I’m having to tip toe while cooking…Pin It
