Our December in Pictures

On the first night of Hanukkah

Bad Dad made latkas.

By the sixth night of Hanukkah, he finally succeeded in installing the Airport Extreme so that Iris can use wifi at home on her iPod Touch*.  He's taking a well-deserved break.
On the sixth day of Hanukkah, I spotted camelia #1 in the backyard.

Camellia #2 unfurls.

* It was a birthday present from her aunt. Iris says it was the best present ever, but it was also an expensive one for her parents because it wasn't compatible with our existing wifi. ;-)

@SB Latkas differ from hash browns because the egg helps it hold together.   By the time we smother them in sour cream and apple sauce, no one can tell.


  1. I feel a little better about my latkes now (I made them to use up potatoes, not because of Hanukkah). I thought they looked a little too much like hash browns. But it looks like yours are pretty similar.

  2. What a pretty candelabra--could a gentile use that for non-Hanukkah dinners? My sister-in-law would LOVE that!
