PSF - I get to play too

PhotoStory Friday
Hosted by Cecily and MamaGeek



This can be a tough time of year for those of us who do not celebrate Christmas. The lights, the songs, the santa its all much fun for the kids. My son is getting old enough to understand our heritage and the fun of Hanukkah. My daughter isn't there yet and is very into the Christmas this year. So we have been talking about getting Hanukkah gifts, lighting the Menorah and playing dreidel. I wrapped and put out each of the kids 8 gifts so they can see them much earlier than I normally do to get them excited. But I also wanted to do something else festive for the kids. I bought this Star of David light in a beautiful blue and hung it in my window above my electronic Menorah.

Hanuk-keh

Its so beautiful hanging in my window. Even the baby liked to play:

Hanukkah Glow


My daughter is getting excited to open her presents. But we still love driving around and spotting Santa and Reindeer and beautiful twinkle lights.

It's funny you say the santa part, because that's the one aspect of Christmas I don't do. And, I love your shots. Happy Hanukkah (well, on Sunday..) & I hope the kids love their 8 great nights.

Happy Hanukkah to you! The star is really pretty and the picture of your little one inside it is adorable! :)

Those pictures are terrific.
I would love to take part in a Hanukkah celebration some day. I know so little about it.
Have wonderful Hanukkah.

We too don't celebrate Christmas, but my daughters are in to decorating a Christmas tree. They enjoy it. Happy Hanukkah to you!

I am Christian and I do celebrate Christmas...but I can relate somewhat to your feelings this time of year since many of our practices are different the mainstream America. I grew up feeling "left out" and that's hard for a kid. It looks like you have done an awesome job sharing your faith with your children, while still incorprating the festive fun! The Star of David is beautiful - especially wrapped around your little one!

Visiting from Photo Story Friday...

The photos are really gorgeous and dramatic. The one with your littlest is just so striking! Enjoy the winter season and Happy Hanukkah.

Well Happy (soon to be) Hanukkah. I can imagine that all the hoopla could be confusing (not to mention too much at times)!

That last picture is award worthy.

HONESTLY. That is perfection (again).

Love the star! Happy Hanukkah!
