My Little Hanukkah House

Christmas Tour of Homes
I've been wanting to participate in boo mama's house tour since the last time she did one. Why? Oh, for the same reason that I like to bare my soul to the internet. Who knows. Anyway, we don't really get into Christmas decorations, but here is what you would have seen if you came to my house during Hanukkah last week.


Every night they would take turns to paint another candle flame until the whole menorah was lit.

These little stars were painstakingly cut out by my 6 year old, and the the Girl embossed them with a swirly pattern using the end of a wooden spoon. The silver ones are old foil plates. (I stole this straight from this months issue of family fun magazine.) They look much prettier than I can show in the photo.

And here is this year's home made menorah. Yes it looks like I just drilled holes in a 2 by four, but really it's white birch, and has such pretty colors in it. And I loved how this years was so sturdy and solid compared to the clay ones that we made last year.

And one more shot, here is the Baby who was born last year on the 3rd night of Hanukkah. Look how she's grown.

  8. Hi- you visited my blog and asked about the balls I had
    I didn't make them-- I bought them at Michael's! Then I bought some wired ribbon and hot glued it around the balls and tied to the chandelier.
    Hope this helps! Enjoyed visiting your blog!

  16. I am not very knowledgeable about Hannukah traditions, but is it traditional to make a new menorah every year? I noticed you said it was sturdier than last year's, so my curiosity is peaked.

    Lovely star cut outs :)
