Hanukkah Sameach!! (Happy Hanukkah) We had an awesome first night, our annual church Hanukkah party! Brother Shelley read the children the story of Hanukkah and we lit the first candle on the menorah. Oh...and of course there were latkes and donuts! I spent all day making Challa bread.....It's not totally traditional for Hanukkah, but we eat it every chance we get. It's become a great tradition in our house for me to make it every year. It takes 5 hours but boy is it worth it. We actually had a little left over this morning, so we are having challa toast with butter and honey! Mmmmmm!!

Of course when we got home we opened gifts and lit our candles. I got the coolest candles this year. They are rainbow colored, hand rolled beeswax! They even smell sweet when they burn! Can you tell I love this season?

Just in case you don't know what Hanukkah is about I'll post a link to a small version of the story.... It's a season of miracles! Blessings to you all!

Oh Launa, this reminds me of my parents' bakery they used to own when I was little. We had the best Challah bread there! It is seriously one of my favorites. I miss it! :) Looks like yours turned out amazing. Happy Hanukkah!
