Crazy Nights: #2

Oh our second day of Hanukkah.

Well, first we went downtown to the Menorah lighting last night, ate latkes, cookies, heard music and shivered. It was a chilly night, but it was a nice crowd & there was more huddling than usual amongst strangers. & there was cider…

We came home to and lit our own menorahs (we have 4, one for each of us). Due to the chill the girls opened their gifts a little early (note cloves/hats in the outside pictures above).

The girls shuffled off to bed excited about a week more of fun.

Today we ran some errands and made shortbread cookies. I worked on a simple project that got me frustrated with our new printer. Maybe I’ll try again later…Naomi colored the first part of this adorable coloring book I found on etsy. (not the cause of my frustration).
The cookies are delicious and I’m sharing the recipe. If anyone has a good recipe for icing, I’d love to try it. Ours didn’t work so great, but Naomi LOVES decorating things–most of her works were devoured upon completion, Leviah’s too.

3/4 Cup Butter
1/4 Cup sugar
2 Cups Flour
Cream sugar with butter, add flour & mix well. Roll about 1/3″ thick and cut shapes. Bake on ungreased cookie sheet for about 18minutes. (check regularly, under cooking is better than overcooking–nothing raw to worry about). Decorate as you choose & enjoy!
More on how we finished tonight later!
