When I was a wee one I used to talk about Chanukah Claus which scandalized all the nice Jewish ladies in the neighborhood but Nana thought it was funny and that's all that mattered to me.
Nana would have loved cooking all sorts of Russian delights along with a turkey.
I am thankful for Hope and Athena.
Hope loves 'Sophia The First' and enjoys dressing like her. The Christmas Elf made her appearance that morning.
When Hope was an infant my favorite thing was her crooked smile. With Athena it is her endless look of surprise. Sometimes her mouth forms a perfect O and sometimes her eyes get really big. Sometimes, if you're lucky, you get both.
We call this photo 'Jeffrey in a Tutu' - she looks so much like her Dad.
Happy Chanukah my friends. Happy Thanksgiving too.
You all hold a special place in my heart.
I posted my favorite colors of Fall over at The Photo Blog The rain and wind have pretty much cleared the trees now.
