A few things to note:
1) My husband is Jewish and I am Christian and we are raising our children in both faiths. Thus, as of last night, we just finished celebrating Chanukah, plus we have a little bit of Christmas stuff going on.
2) This was not a typical Saturday for us!
3) My family consists of me (Natasha), my husband, Dave, our nine year old son, Sam, and our seven year old daughter, Rachel.
With those explanations, welcome aboard.
With everything going on with the holidays, and with Rachel having had the stomach flu on Friday, I was exhausted and didn't set an alarm. I woke up at about 8:20 and got right to work making supper for a family in our church. The husband just had surgery and I wanted to send a meal to help out. Dave dropped it off on his way to the synagogue with Sam while I stayed home with a still recuperating Rachel. And I drank my first cup of coffee-hot chocolate in my Chanukah mug.
Excuse my post-nap, still slightly fighting a headache, look :)
... we read our annual Chanukah story, The Latke Who Couldn't Stop Screaming, and the kids played driedel. This is the most intense driedel game and the kids love winning the chocolates.
It was a very full Saturday. I might try to do another Saturday Day in the Life in February when things are a little less holiday intense, and a lot more normal!
