Indys first Chanukah

Last year, Chanukah began on Dec 20, 2011 (when Keith and I were already on our honeymoon), so Indy has never had the chance to really celebrate Chanukah!  We are pleased to be celebrating it this year with a new toy/surprise every day.

Grandma Rosalie picked out many toys over Thanksgiving, and even saved up Toilet Paper rolls for him to play with!

The pyramid we created for Indy to play with.  Video of subsequent description should be coming soon. 
And the destruction.  He is very proud of himself!

For the 3rd night, Indy got a squeeky beer bottle toy.  He loves running around the house with this, which is a HILARIOUS sight.
We are using two Menorahs this year. One that I received for my Bat Mitzvah (16 years ago!) and another that I got for my birthday a few years ago.

As you can tell from his ears, Indy knows that he is not allowed to be up on the radiator.  He tends to avoid the area near the candles entirely.  

For the second night of Chanukah, I made latkes.  They were delicious, but unfortunately I burned her arm on the splatter screen.   (I am doing fine now, but was very unhappy this night!)

Indy is getting really good at his latest trick, STEADY.  We can put a treat or some small toys, on his nose and he will stay still until we give the release, OKAY.  He is getting better and better at holding still so that I can even capture a photo!

More Flat Jackson

When Flat Jackson was with us this Spring, he had a few more adventures than made it into our letter.

Flat Jackson was pleased that he finally tamed Indy:

Flat Jackson is still with us in my computer!

Flat Jackson and Keith and Rebecca's House

We sent Flat Jackson back to his school with some new flat friends... Flat Keith and Flat Rebecca!
