I’m not lying when I tell you that my kids actually do think they are warming up their little hands on the TV ‘yule log’. We usually start off Christmas watching this while making pancakes, then we drove to Connecticut to have dinner with friends and lingered there to enjoy the snow for a few days ..
But I’m getting ahead of myself.
Anyhow here are some shots of our slow start to the day in Queens, and the festive scene in Cornwall.

This past weekend we visited cousins Paul and Sophia in Massachusetts. We celebrate Chanukah in our home – but can visit their house to see a little Christmas spirit if we need to. Their mom loves to decorate every corner with Christmas stuff and Zoe got her first real taste of living with a tree in the house! Ezra of course loved the electric train that circled underneath the tree, and all the relatives came by with more presents for the last days of Chanukah. Ezra got an electric scooter, Zoe got ballet slippers and a princess Play doh set. As much as the gifts were exciting, I honestly think Ezra and Zoe enjoyed seeing their cousins (and their dogs) more than anything. I do know they are happy to NOT have an ‘elf on a shelf‘ watching their every move this season – creepy!
