Kids: they dance before they learn there is anything that isn't music.

What is more beautiful than life through the eyes of a child?
Chanukah is the most fun Holiday in our life.
It's all about food, music, and gifts.
I wish I could be with my children on every Holiday.
Especially on Chanukah.
Instead I watch from far.
This year my DD made her daughter her very first Chanukah party.
So much excitement in the preparations.
Art project, nosh, friends and family.
Right before the party she went to buy a huge Chanukah balloon.
Don't you wish you could experience as an adult the unaffected joy of a child?
A child is happy by default.
Somewhere along the lines things change.
We grow older , become harder to please and we lose this childhood contentment.
If we can only remember...
Happiness is not somewhere out there; it rests within, in that part of us that is forever young and forever giving--our soul.

Once again I am using CJS Chanukah paper for this Chanukah layout.
So easy to put any layout together from their entire holiday kits collection.
If you want to start buying supplies this would be a safe bet.
We as a nation are all about Holidays.
We do them every year.
Isn't it time to put down some memories....

Speaking about your inner child, here's another way to learn from our children how to have play.
Have fun with them and you will surely have fun through them!

As you can see, the photos are not 'picture perfect'.
But making a memory last is...
