Hanukkah Exploration

We leave Friday afternoon to meet the Lizard King in Disney World! I can hardly believe that the time is so close. We will spend 5 fun-filled, much needed, days together. (Have I mentioned this already?) We fly back to Portland on the 10th and Hanukkah starts on the 11th.

I have spent a good part of the weekend searching for Hanukkah activities to entertain us this week and during the week of Hanukkah. I found a site were you can design your own BINGO cards! They even have a Hanukkah theme! I found a Hanukkah lapbook here along with links to other sites with even more stuff! The one thing I couldn't find was a picture (easy) crossword puzzle, so I made one myself. :)

Today Princess chose the crossword puzzle and Hanukkah Bingo.

We made cornstarch clay, using this recipe. We used the clay to make Hanukkah decorations and a couple snowmen. Princess and I are wondering if we'll be able to paint the clay. We'll find out once everything is dry.

A little jealous of your Disney trip here.

I still can't believe we're going twice in one year! Although the one in January doesn't count because we went with my parents who totally sucked the life out of the trip.

Tell you what, Kelly. I'll bring you with us in my thoughts. Not the same, huh? ;)

I'm jealous too.

Shady Lady said...

Okay, fine. Do you all want to come with us? You just have to promise not to suck the life out of the vacation.

Awesome! You're so crafty and creative! And can I come on the trip, too? What if I promise to babysit Princess so you and LK can have some alone time? ;)

Have a safe trip and a fabulous time, Shady Lady!

Shady Lady said...

Sure, Rachel! Come on along. We've had lots of offers from people to watch Princess so that LK and I can have time alone. We have been saying, thanks but no thanks. We don't want to take any Daddy time away from her.

Woo Hoo! Seeing the hubby and going to Disney World! I am so excited for you ladies!

Love the header and was surprised to see you without the shades on your face. Why have you been hiding pretty lady???


Shady Lady said...

Thank you so much, Lisa! We're pretty excited, too...okay, we're jump up and down screaming excited!!!!!!!!!!

Glad you like the header. I shades hiding the face.
If you look though, they are firmly planted on top of my head! Thank you for the compliment as well. These days, I need to hear that.
