The Holidays: Family edition

Christmas and Hanukkah were wonderful as we got to spend it with all three of our parents. While we missed our siblings (who were all in Denver this year enjoying their own homes and making new traditions), it was great to have Diane and Caden with us. Diane and Caden celebrated their first Christmas ever with us and Santa must have known since they both got gelt in their stockings and Caden got a Hanukkah dreidle in his!
A stocking was hung by the window with care...

My mom made these awesome stockings from scratch!

Santa was good to everyone...no one got coal!
Caden and I playing with wax from the menorah...these are his initials

The dogs loved their stocking presents the most!
