Christmas was finally here ...



I have been hearing about this whole Christmas thing and it finally came! I got up and my cookies were eaten by Santa and he left me a thank you note and then the tree was surrounded by gifts!!
I got so much wonderful things. Of course I needed a break mid gift opening to have breakfast. Then to bubbe and pops where there was even more stuff! What a great day!

I also finally got to meet my cousin Sam who was visiting from Australia! This weekend I get to see more of my cousins and can not wait.

Christmas Tree




Today we went to pick out my first Christmas tree. Now we just have to decorate it so I can take all the ornaments off.

Happy Hanukkah




Tuesday night started the first night of Hanukkah. Every night for 8 nights I light the menorah, say a pray and oh then I get a present. Tonight we made latkes and celebrated with cousin Joseph, Uncle Adam, Bubbe and Pop.

My 1st Halloween




I had a great 1st Halloween. I went parading around in my spider costume and gave out candy and spider rings to the kids in the neighborhood. I just wish I could have had some of that candy.
