DIY Menorah


DIY Menorah, originally uploaded by botodesigns.

In the rush to get back to New Haven 2 weeks ago, we somehow managed to leave all three of the Menorot we had in storage in Philadelphia. So today we made a fabulously un-fabulous but functional menorah using scrap wood, wood glue and drill bits.

One of My Favorite Parts of Coming Home...

Looking through my new photos today I found this shot of Sam's mom and his parents adorable dogs greeting us at their doorway. This is the scene every time we come to visit and it warms my heart each time. These dogs are the sweetest girls you'll ever meet and I'm so thankful that they were rescued by such a loving family. Go Dean and Debby!
