Our Chanukah History

While taking out the Chanukah decorations, chanukiyot, dreidels, and books from the Chanukah box, we "found" all the things that the kids have made for Chanukah over the years.

Thus, a new tradition is born:

And then we found this one, which their Ima made a looong time ago.
So they insisted on taking my picture with it:

But I couldn't resist also taking a picture of the back.
Yep, I was a documenter of things even then.
How do you document your family traditions and memories?

I wondered where that went. I used it for years. I have been looking for it so I could use it again when you brought the family to our house for candle lighting.

My daughter started at Jewish preschool last year and we're already starting to see all the wonderful handmade menorahs and dreidels. It's so fun to look back to even a year ago and see how she's changed. I can't wait to see what time will bring.

My children are in their mid 20's and primarily out of the house. I love finding the objects they made in preschool. We still use the afikomen bag that my daughter made when she was 3 at our family seder! Someday we hope to share these treasures with grandchildren.

I love this! I have my son do this every few years, too. It's amazing how much they forget. And how much they remember. ;-)
