For dinner I tried to give the boys a Hanukkah special-- mashed potatoes with applesauce instead of a latke and applesauce. Not a hit. Asher took a few mouthfuls, gagged, and then refused to open his mouth. So I got him a bowl of oatmeal and applesauce, which he was only too happy to eat, and began his singing and humming that he makes when he's eating something he really likes. Benjamin seemed to suffer through it, but even he wasn't thrilled.
I had picked up some Hanukkah gelt at Trader Joe's as their gift, although they don't eat chocolate. I just wanted their first gift to be something traditional! Here is Benjamin, chewing on the bag:
Today it seemed like the boys had little colds-- slightly snotty, more fussy, and Asher napped A LOT. We all slept in until 8 after waking up around 6 for the boys to eat, which was a nice surprise. We all are in need of a little extra rest until we feel better, which will hopefully be soon, since play group is scheduled to be at our house on Friday and I will have to send people elsewhere if my guys are sick.
