It Gets Better...

This morning I had "Chanukah, Oh Chanukah" stuck in my head. This makes sense since Piglet sings it ALL THE TIME!

While I was making breakfast for the kids, I was singing, and Piglet was chiming in. When we finished the song, I asked him "What do you play with at Chanukah?"

He said, "You play a game and get candies."

I said, "What kind of game? How do you play?"

He said, "I don't know. I'm not Mexican."


And I promised a winner announced today. As much as I wanted to fix the election so that Dawn would win and I wouldn't have to ship anything everyone to win, we have only one winner.

The winner is

Heather, email me your snail mail address and I will get this ornament out to you on Monday!

(If Heather is otherwise unable to fulfill her duties as the winner of the ornament, the ornament will then go to Dawn Masi someone else in the Houston area another drawn name.)


  1. Does he know that Channukah lasts for 8 days and a lot of little boys and girls get a gift each night when the candles are lit?

  2. Damn, this is what I get for being out of the loop.

    I gotta get to Poland and hang out with you!

  3. Is Piglet simply a genius?! I think so.

  4. Heehee! Congrats Heather! And Kylie, I loved your post about those early Polish winter sunsets, the vodka etc. I remember winters in Ireland, where the sun would set by 4pm. Depressing. On the other hand, summer nights were bright till about 10pm or so...

  5. Congrats, Heather!! And I am not at all upset that I didn't win because I got a really cute Christmas card in the mail. Thanks a ton Kylie!1

  6. You have to blog about Pamela because I can't read Owl's facebook note.

  7. Also, mucho props to Pamela!! I expect a blog soon on her accomplishement, K.

  8. oh dreidel, dreidel, dreidel....we sing all damn day in kindergarten!!!

  9. hahahhaaa!!! mexican!!! ooohh!! that's great!!!!

  10. I loved the Mexican line - you can't beat kids to make you laugh out loud.
    Thanks for choosing me! Early Christmas pressie!

  11. Hmmm....maybe we Mexicans have tamales instead of latkes? Just a thought...

    And no, you didn't get my cookies because I didn't get the ornament. Promise. :)
