I hope you've enjoyed this little round-up of recipes, I know I'm sure ready to have some fun with these sometime this week—we've still got four more nights of Hanukkah left! The really good news is that my kids tonight were talking about which holidays were their favorites, and Hanukkah was definitely on the list, which means, phew, I'm doing a good job of making this holiday festive and fun for the kids! I"m sure the chocolate has something to do with it, but then again so does all the crafting, the decorations mommy worked so hard on, and the small gifts.
Give it your all, and if your kids love the holiday, it was all worth it! Even the sleep deprivation. And now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go get re-aquainted with my pillow! Have a wonderful holiday, may the light of Hanukkah illuminate all the darkness in the world— globally, locally and personally!
