Chanukah 2014 Day 1. Safeway only had birthday candles. We soldiered on. Noah got marshmallows, Caleb got toothpicks... so they could make sculptures. Caleb got a Twilight Sparkle and Noah got a brand new fuzzy Dugga. Gold coins too.
This new explosion of literacy has been hilarious. The boys wrote each other sweet notes: Caleb to Noah: "I love you even though you smell like poo" Noah to Caleb: "Why you smell like butt cracks Caleb?"
Caleb got to take home the superkindy bear named "Honey Bear"
Caleb made a journal of all of the things they did together: sharing cookies, taking turns reading books, sitting on the couch and going to sleep.
The kids all made their own food. There were stations for pie, cornucopia, flatbread, fruit salad and cinnamon apples. Dad helped each kid cut spiral apples. Caleb visited dad's station twice. He got to do two apples. Shhh.
