Two holidays merge into one

We had fun taking advantage of a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to celebrate Thanksgivukkah, the convergence of Thanksgiving and Hanukkah.

Turkey with cranberry sauce, plus latkes with apple sauce, actually went together well along with the traditional fixin's. For dessert, we gobbled up (sorry!) pies made by Katie (pumpkin) and Evelyn (apple). Afterwards, we lit the menorah and I gave out presents; just some little things.

It definitely is nice to be done shopping before the Christmas rush begins.

I have been slivering the pies all night. I'm just sorry that I'm not running the Talking Turkey race tomorrow.

Sounds like a lot of fun! We were too overwhelmed to make latkes on Thanksgiving so we're doing leftover turkey, etc. with latkes tonight. My kids ran a turkey trot on TG morning at 8 am , temp. in the 20's. Ah, youth.
