Dear Abby

Meet Abby – the newest addition to our family. Don’t ask me how it happened. Let’s just say a flood of joy has swept over our family. Who would have thought such a little creature could bring such happiness.

The Five Amigos

The cousins love each other almost as much as they love a restaurant with a dozen TVs blaring, hot wings and fries and pop by the pitcher. Oh yeah, and a hand full of lollipops on the way out.

Hanukkah Party 2007

Lots of planning went into this year’s party, like any other. The latkes were tasty, the food was oily, and the company was chatty. But, can you tell me why the party always concentrates in the kitchen?

Leigh-Anne’s thoughtful party favours were a hit with the kids. But my favourite moment was the candle lighting.

The music was also hip this year. I made a few new music discoveries for the Hanukkah party season. First, there was the LeeVees “How do you spell Channukkah”.

I also came across Craig Taubman whose Hanukkah Lounge collection blew my mind. Check out a sample of his version of Maoz Tsur.
