I’m not sure if I have ever mentioned this before but Oliver’s dad is Jewish. Even though neither of the kids are particularly religious it is important to both of them that Oliver is exposed to his history and we were thrilled that we would be here for his first Hanukkah celebration. Of course he needed the perfect outfit and Kyrston had him ready to go.
While Jeremy and Kyrston were setting up, Oliver was getting to know his Aunt Kay. It’s lovely to see my kids meet our grandson for the first time and he is getting lots of love and attention.
When the table was all ready we walked over to see. Jeremy, who went to Hebrew school three days a week until he was 15, recited and then he lit the candle on his parents Menorha. It was a really special moment.
Next was present time! Jeremy’s brother has sent a present especially for the first night and it was a ton of fun watching Oliver try to open it.
It was wonderful being a part of his first Hanukkah and I am super excited about his first Christmas. More about that next time!
