This evening we went over to the home of our neighbors Mindy and Dan to celebrate the fifth night of Hanukkah. They had a good-sized gathering, with friends and neighbors of ours enjoying an evening together.
One of the nicest parts were all the kids, ranging in age from Dawn and Tom's 1-year-old daughter all the way up to both of our college age children, enjoying the fun together. Mindy made delicious potato latkes, we lit the traditional Hanukkah candles (it was the first year for their son Jake to take on that responsibility), and we had an all-around very enjoyable dinner.
I love the holiday season - and it is nice to have such wonderful neighbors.
