Happy Hanukkah

Hanukkah began last Tuesday evening and last night was the fourth candle. Since Hanukkah began we have had quite a bit of fun. Tommy and I played dreydle and Aunt A came over and gave us presents the very very bestest nip pillows and nip mice to play with and a quilt that mom hasn't let us play with yet cause she's afraid Tommy with slobber all over it. I don't have pictures of everything yet. Tonight mom says we have to stay in the bedroom because she is having a latke fest and she doesn't want us getting fur all over the latkes.

This is my mom's favorite Hanukkah Card.

This is Tommy taking a turn at dreydle. I'm better at winning.

What is dreydle? Is it kind of like paw the playthings?

You're right Patches, Dreydle is kind of like paw the playthings. A dreydle is a four sided top that has a letter on each side. Dreydle games are played mostly by children and they use pennies or chocolate gelt but Tommy and I play for Temptations treats. The Hebrew letters are nun gimmel hey and shin. If you get gimmel you win all the Temptations in the pot, if you get nun you don't get any, if you get shin you have to put one in the pot and if you get hey you get half of the Temptations pot.

Dreydle looks like a lot of fun! Do you whap it really hard and send it flying or make it spin?

We hope you all have a Happy Hanukkah!
