3rd Night of Hanukkah Tonite! Kids Get Creative With Menorahs & Rock Band

Me at Homeschoolers Hanukkah Party Last Night

Can't believe how fast Hanukkah is going. It's already the 3rd night and we'll be lighting candles in a few minutes.  The kids are getting more wound-up with every day of this holiday so I can't even imagine how rambunctious they'll be by the time we get to the last candle 5 nights from now.

Last night, the whole family went to a really fun Chanukah celebration put on by the L.A. Jewish Homeschoolers group we belong to.  The food was delicious, but what made this event so special was that there was a menorah contest featuring some really creative handmade holiday candelabras made by both little and big kids.  

To top it all off some of the middle school and high school homeschoolers put on a Chanukah rock music concert for us featuring original arrangements of popular songs celebrating the Festival of Lights.
