(these [Nine] Moments)

Another little bit of Thursday for Friday.

We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures.  ~Thornton Wilder

We've been enjoying the kindling the Hanukkah candles since the first night. Avi loves it!

 Avi cooking in his new kitchen he got for Hanukkah from Grandma and Grandpa!! I'm not sure if you remember how good of a cook Avi is?

Avi's first trip to the ballet. We saw the nutcracker (during nap time, mind you) and he was a dream. 
He loved it! (sorry for the quality of this photo - but I had to include this).
 Here Avi is peeking into to a present from his other Grandpa (my dad). 

 And he loves what's inside (as do i)... this vintage block set and some books. Super Cute!!

 Avi fell asleep before his cousins and auntie and grandma arrived for fourth night dinner. 

 Spending more time at the habitat. I love how much it changes with the seasons.

 A little bit of swinging and a little bit of kisses! Avi and I were cracking each other up as we made up silly songs about roosters and the sky while he was swinging. What a day!! 

Avi's collected treasures from our walk to the habitat today.
