Not sure exactly how much snow we had this weekend but thanks to the wonderful snow plows it did not put a damper on the family Hanukkah party tonight (Sunday).
I ended up making snowman cake pops with Alli yesterday. I had high hopes for these and was a bit disappointed with the final product. I could not find the right sprinkles for buttons and my edible markers were giving us some trouble but life goes on and at least they tasted yummy.
I got the cutest key chain tonight from Justin’s aunt. Everyone knows that when the cold weather rolls around you can find me in one of my many pairs of uggs so… this was a perfect gift for me.
Surviving in a giant snow globe is bearable because of a great puffy coat, warm gloves, and a cashmere scarf!
How was your weekend?
Leo loves his dreidel!
No matter what holiday you celebrate December 1 starts a craving inside everyone for traditional holiday food! When I came back from Alabama I was pretty lucky that Justin had saved me some of his mom’s latkes (latkes- are potato pancakes for all my blog readers who do not know) They are delish and I really enjoyed them and they are all gone now which is a bummer because tonight is the first night of Hanukkah. (now I don’t want to go off on a tangent but look what I found as I was writing the way that I spell Hanukkah… hmm who knew?)

Anyways I am going to be honest with y’all… I have never made a latka in my life and I don’t think my mom has either so… I wait for the parties when I can eat them… I know sad but maybe I will eventually start peeling some potatoes and making some.
Here is my other problem what kind of food do you serve on Hanukkah? ( It’s 8 days and I have yet to make anything to celebrate the holiday)
