Deck the Halls with Loaves of Challah

Last night was my 5th annual holiday party. I had a wonderful time with friends and it seemed a good time was had by all. The last of the partygoers left around 3am and boy was I tired! Food, drink and yummy desserts made for a great night with special thanks for all my holiday gifts. Here's to another round next year and a wonderful 2007 for everyone.

The Tale of the Secret Pal and Eight Crazy Nights

Well my Secret Pal, struck again! I was completely in awe when I opened my package to find eight Hanukkah gifts wrapped so beautifully with a card and a note telling me how she researched the holiday. I was so touched and I wanted to wait until Hanukkah and open one gift each night but like a child I couldn't wait. As always, Fortune Cookie got some wonderful gifts and somehow I am never forgotten. I got a great Frog Prince clock which I am taking to work with me as a daily reminder of how lucky I am to have such a thoughtful person in my life whom I don't even know. I truly hope one day I can meet this special person and thank her from the bottom of my heart.

Princesses on Ice

Last Sunday was Brianna's 6th birthday and since I had promised her a "girl's" day I thought she might want to go ice skating. Mind you it's been 15 or so years since I've been on the ice but I was looking foeward to the day. We went to the children's session to avoid some of the wildness at the rink but the rental kid wasn't the sharpest crayon in the box and after he gave me 12 pair of the wrong size, including men's hockey skates I had enough! I got my money back, went to the pro shop and bought myself a pair of comfort figure skates. I must say they are surely COMFORTABLE. I skated better than I did 20 years ago and BOY was I sore the next day. All in all it was a lovely day. Bri had so much fun we stayed for the next session before heading to lunch and Macy's to pick her out a birthday outfit. She chose an adorable winter sweater for herself and we found a matching one for her baby sister Tori. They were so excited to try them on, they insisted I take a picture.

Baking with Sophia

What better way than to spend a Sunday afternoon hanging out with my gal pal Carrie and her daughter Sophia baking cupcakes. We had a lot of fun and Sophia was defintely a HUGE help in the kitchen and decorator extraordinaire. Next time, I think we'll have to make cookies!
