Weekend Open Thread

Happy weekend! This week around $4000 in books, classroom supplies, and gift cards were purchased for under-priveleged kids through the seventh annual DW book drive! Thank you so much to all who contributed in whatever way you were able to — your generosity is making a difference. There are still a few items left on the teachers’ registries if you want to get in on the good vibes. And if you weren’t able to participate this year, don’t worry – we’ll do it again next year.

What are you all up to this weekend? Drew ran in his first race this morning and the kids and I bundled up to go cheer him on. Hanukkah starts tomorrow, so maybe I’ll make some attempt at making latkes (mine never turn out) or maybe I’ll just buy some from the gourmet deli down the block. We do gifts on the first and last nights of Hanukkah and this year Jackson really, really wants “a diary with a lock” (spoiler: he’s going to get one), and Joanie doesn’t care what she gets because she pretty much likes everything (she’s getting a ballerina puzzle).

Have a great weekend, and happy Hanukkah to those who celebrate!

    I got my Hannukah cards out (technically, the last few went out on Saturday) so they should arrive before the holiday ends.

    Wendy – the key is the flour and eggs to bind and then very hot oil. Sometimes you have to let that mess sit just a little before frying up.

    Aww, I remember asking for a diary with a lock when I was 6, for Christmas. It’s fun to look back on now!
