Scenes from Hanukkah

On Sunday it rained.  Yesterday more rain.  Today how about so more rain.  It feels more like spring time here in Southeastern Massachusetts.  I am hoping to see the sun sometime soon but it doesn't look promising.  The boys were hoping for snow but that isn't likely.  Here are some pics from around the house at Hanukkah. 
 
 
Flowers from my mom. 

Dreidel from my collection

Menorah ready for lighting

Danforth pewter dreidel from my mother-in-law

Table set and ready for guests

Donuts that my son, Avery made. Yummy!!

My favorite menorh!  I love the primitive feel.
I hope you enjoyed the photo tour and a peek at our decorations.  The are minimal and simple, like the holiday but we always have a good time.  I am headed to my stitching chair today with a couple of goals in mind.  I am finishing Read Between the Lines by Blue Ribbon Designs, it is LONG overdue and I am in the home stretch.  My second goal is to work on an exchange project.  Iam about halfway finished and I am enjoying it so much I can't put it down.  LOVE it.  I equate it to a good book.  When you read that first page and can't put it down until you turn the last.  I haven't had a book like that in a long time but this stitching projects feels just like that.  Hope you all have a wonderful day and Happy Stitching!

Great view into your family Hanukkah celebrations! No sooner did we finish with our Hanukkah celebrations then we were off on vacation to a sunny tropical island! May 2013 hold plenty of quality stitching time and if I can ever get my act together perhaps some model stitching for you!!!
