Tis the Season

Hello, friends.  I haven’t been here for a few days, and I can’t stay long now.  ‘Tis the season for many wonderful things, but also for colds, and my baby’s had a doozy.  We’ve spent many hours in recent days (and nights) snuggling and rocking, a rare treat at this age when she’s usually so on the go.  And when one sister is cuddling in my lap, the others usually like to come and pile in too.  So we’ve been cozy.  And I’ve had my lap (and hands) full.  There’s no better gift, really. MenorahI hope you’re enjoying this month, and whatever light-filled holiday it brings to your family.  If you have room for one more cookie in your jar, I recommend these sugar cookies.  The recipe was passed down to me through a good friend’s family as “A Child’s Cookie,” and indeed the dough is just sturdy enough for little people to enjoy working with on their own.Hanukkah Cookies

    Chag sameach! I hope the colds work themselves out quickly. In the meantime, having quality time with family really can’t be all bad. And now you’ve reminded me to bake a batch of cookies!

    I was missing you! So sorry to hear your little one’s been ill, but you’re right … sometimes this gives us the opportunity to slow down and do really important things, like cuddling and comforting. Happy Hanukkah!

    Happy Chanukah, Emmy! I’m sorry to hear about the winter bug in your house, but very warmed to see the lights of the season and to hear about the cuddles happening under your roof. Gotta love all that warmth and light in the midst of the cold and dark!
