Lila was out with her friend so it was just 4 of us. Ella and Eli played ABC bingo before the dinner.
On the 4th day of Hanukkah Ofir was still sick and I made potato latkes as I like them - grated very thin, no eggs or onions, just potatoes. The results are crispy outside and soft and gooey inside - absolutely delicious.
Day 4 - Lila - 2 pj bottoms, Ella - post-it noted with E monogram and toe socks (see note), Eli -Kimochis (little creatures that represent feelings)
Day 5 - Lila - 3 last books from the Figure Skating Mystery series by Alina Adams (Axel of Evil, Death Drop, Skate Crime) , Ella - rhythmic gymnastics ribbon - Eli - gorgeous Hanukkah pop-up book (oh, how I love pop-up books!)
Note: I bought toe socks for Lila on her birthday, Ella said she also wants toe socks. I made a mental note for myself and added them to the list of her Hanukkah gifts. When she saw the socks she said she doesn't like them and never wanted toe socks. At least she loved the little booklet with monogrammed post-it notes that I found in the dollar section at Michael's.
We are celebrating with friends tonight. I am looking forward to nice evening. Meanwhile I want to wish all my friends and blog readers that celebrate Christmas - Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
