Happy Chanukah!

I’m not really back to blogging yet, but I wanted to quickly touch base in order to thank you for all the wonderful comments and emails about the bar mitzvah and to wish you a happy Chanukah!

B”H, the bar mitzvah weekend was beautiful; we all had a great time; and <maternal boasting> the bar mitzvah boy did an amazing job BA”H. </boasting>

As soon as things calm down a bit, I’ll B”N try and post a few details about the menu etc. and maybe even a recipe or two.

But in the meantime – and in order to combine this post’s two themes (i.e. the bar mitzvah and Chanukah) – here are a few pictures to show you what we used to decorate the tables on Motza”Sh (=Saturday night):IMG_6001IMG_6003

  1. Thanks for sharing! For someone who is not yet back to blogging, this is a beautiful post. And you are more than welcome to boast about your son's achievements (did I mention that my son's team won the debate on Sunday night?).

  2. Mazal tov, mazal tov - it looks beautiful and I'm sure it was! Just lean back and bask a little, we completely understand :)

  3. Leora - Mazal tov on your son's win! BTW, did you notice that the colors of the four draidels in my third picture match the colors of the draidels in your lovely Chanukah drawing? Happy Chanukah!

    Toby - Thank you and happy Chanukah!

  4. Hag Sameach to you and your family!

  5. You know the Diet Coke offsets all the extra calories of sufganiyot. It's one of the Chanukah miracles. I just had to comment because it was featured in your photo next to the dreidels.

    Chanukah sameach to you and the whole family!

  6. Ilana-Davita - Happy Chanukah to you too!

    Ariella - LOL! And in fact, we DID serve sufganiyot at the melaveh malkah... :-)

  7. Mazel tov!! I'm so glad everything went so well. I look forward to hearing more details. I love the picture with the draidels.

    Chag Urim Sameach.

  8. As one who was lucky enough to be at the REAL affair, not just virtually, I can attest that it truly was a beautiful simcha!

  9. Laura - Thank you! Happy Chanukah and Shabbat Shalom!

    Malke - Thanks for being such an important part of the simcha (including TSBTS)!

  10. Bat Mitzvah Invitations - You're welcome!
