Christmas & Hanukkah 2008
There is a mish mosh of pictures here from about the last week in November when we visited the zoo up until just today (Christmas Day). It's been a very busy month for us as it is with everyone. My little ones are asleep as I am writing this after a long Christmas day. Asher iced & decorated his first cake which is going to be dedicated to Jesus' birthday. Taly just enjoyed eating all the candy off of the cake & surprising us Christmas Eve with her first steps.. We are so excited she is walking, but now I am going to really have to keep an eye on her :-) It was a great Christmas gift & we had a nice time as a family lighting the Menorah & teaching Asher & Taly about the shamash or "servant Candle" along with why we celebrate both Hanukkah & Christmas. They are both pretty young still, but you never know what the Lord is molding in their little minds. Right now we are all just enjoying the lights on the tree & the glow of the menorah which has been a treat to all of us. Anyways, enjoy the pictures of my two little ones..growing so big...and only about 4 weeks to go until our next little guy "Isaac Joseph" arrives..WOW time is going by fast. Most of the pictures are from Christmas Eve (and Day) along with the 2nd and 3rd night of Hanukkah (December 22 & 23rd but there are some like the one with Asher on the carousel with Keith that were from November. There are pics of the two of them playing with their new Christmas/Hanukkah toys. Also there are a couple of shots of Taly in there that were too cute to pass up posting. She's the most photogenic kid I have about ever seen....both her & her brother love to pose for the camera.
