337. Lighting the menorah
The girl has been so excited about celebrating Hanukkah this year. We make merry for Christmas, too, so she is loving all the celebratory events.
In her mind now, you light candles and that prepares you for a gift. She has been excited about all the little gifts she has gotten since Thanksgiving (the start of Hanukkah).
Tonight, she got the movie Matilda from my oldest step-daughter. She jumped up and down with excitement and then we watched it while we ate dinner. We don't usually watch movies while we eat but it just seemed right to make an exception tonight.
