We are officially kicking off the Chrismukkah season tonight with the first night of Hanukkah. On tap: PRESENTS, dreidel, and probably pizza for dinner. We were toying with making latkes or Cornish hens, but the real treat is not having to clean anything up right?
Having 3 kids and 8 nights of Hanukkah means I had to wrap 24 presents. And next year? 32. That’s a lot of presents, especially when you are a little impatient. Like I am. (Also, no good at the straight line cutting). And especially when you think about how these are just EXTRA presents, since we do Christmas, too. Lots of Scotch tape is what I'm saying.
My favorite holiday treat is a cheese ball (seriously—the kind with liquid smoke—I have not had one of those in YEARS and might need to make one today…). But before I have an actual cheese ball, here are some holiday pics of my own little cheese balls (see what I did there?)
