The final week of the year has arrived. I have completed this 52 week project and I have a lot of photos of my kids that I will print and put in their scrapbook which I know we will all cherish. This week was also Hanukkah so I have been busy documenting each of the nights of fun. Here are the highlights from the rest of the week. It’s been the most fun to end the year with a nightly celebration.

I wish everyone a very Happy New Year. Here’s to a wonderful 2017!
Hanukkah is upon us and we are having a great time lighting the candles, eating latkies and getting gifts. So for this week I thought I would play with some macro shots with the theme of Hanukkah.
I started with a few abstracts with my Lensbaby Velvet56.
Then my macro lens for a shot of the headband my 9 year old made. 🙂
The kids’ menorah glasses.
Some pretty Hanukkah candles.
My most favorite decoration that stays out all year, a crystal dreidel.
And lastly, the dreidel my youngest actually made out of clay.
And now please head over to the wonderful Iris Nelson to see her Macro Monday shots this week.
Happy Hanukkah and Happy Christmas Eve. I tried an in-camera double exposure this week for fun.
I can’t believe the final week of this project is upon us starting tomorrow and it will be the most fun yet as it is the week of Hanukkah. I know I will have a lot to share in the final blog post of the year to finish off with a bang. Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!
We are down to one more week before Hanukkah arrives. It does feel a little strange with it being quite so late this year. But this week the kids are starting to get excited about picking their menorahs and candles that they plan to light. Plus we tested the lights in our decorations and played with some beautiful morning sun, inside. Something to keep us busy during this very cold week.
Tonight I had some fun with my Lensbaby and Sweet35. It was also Shabbat so we had a nice dinner with Matzoh Ball soup (because I am nursing a cold), challah and corned beef. The girls also wanted to light the Shabbat candles. Who am I to say no to to that request?
Each year we would pick out a menorah and the kids would take turns lighting the candles each night. Well this year I decided to break tradition and let each one of them pick their own menorah to light. Tonight was also our family Hanukkah party filled with latkes, brisket, rugula and lots of presents. It was the perfect start to the beginning of the festival of lights.
