Happy Chanukah!

Tonight we threw a little party to celebrate the first night of Chanukah. We were joined by some great friends, who brought their Chanukah (and goyim!) traditions with them. We had soooooo much food....latkes, challah, salad, brisket and veggies, and Honey Mann's amazingly delicious kugel.

Steven said the blessing over the challah.......

Rick showed Sean how to recite the proper blessings over the Chanukah candles. When they were through, Sean asked "When are we going to say the blessing that Kim always says?" Ummmmm.....we just did that one. Except that Rick's flawless Hebrew sounds mighty different than mine :)

Once dinner was over, we indulged in Rick and Jason's home-made jelly donuts....unbelievably, ridiculously delicious!

Jason shows us how to "do the dip" into the powdered sugar!

Jason, Rick, Honey, Steven, Mike, and Bill.....thank you for sharing such a wonderful "First Night" with us!
