Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah!
Last night was the first night of Hanukkah, in addition to being Christmas Eve. It was so nice to celebrate both holidays at the same time! We gave my dad a new menorah, because our old one had broken. He had been looking and looking for a new one, but there's barely any Jewish stuff sold in the stores down here! It's insane! So it was quite the surprise for him when we gave him the menorah that my mom had purchased online. It was even Disney themed, which was the perfect fit for our family!
After my dad passed out Hanukkah gifts to all of us, my mom passed out the traditional new Christmas Eve pajamas. When my siblings and I stood together to take a photo in the new PJs, my brother was thrilled to see that he was, in fact, finally taller than me (as if that's some big accomplishment... I'm only 5' tall!), which made him really proud.
Unfortunately, my brother was too tired to stay up and help with the Elf work last night, so my mom and I took care of everything as usual. It was well worth the hard work when the kids all woke up this morning and saw everything out by the tree. The squeals of delight made us all smile.
I hope that everyone had a good Christmas and/or enjoys the rest of Hanukkah, depending on what you celebrate... Happy holidays!

My family has been doing foster care since I was three years old. I'm the only biological child in my family, though I now have five permanent siblings. Having nineteen siblings over the course of my lifetime has been an incredible experience, and I'm hoping that by sharing some of the ups and downs of being the only bio kid in a foster family, other foster families or people looking into doing foster care will be able to learn a bit of what life can be like. I also like to share what life is like on my journey to becoming a published author, as well as where my schooling and career choice are taking me.
