They got us lovely gifts for chanukah. My mother surprised me with an additional gift of chanukah, the more traditional chanukah gift. This does not refer to a threadless gift certificate, but it is quite good.
Shabbos was quite lovely at my father's, though I ended up explaining some of the finer points of what melacha means. I accidentally had some dairy 5 hours after meat. Stinker.
in 16 or so hours, G-d willing, we will be back in Seattle. I have missed the flat.
Oh, and my father really liked Kal Ho Naa Ho. No tears but that's okay - not everyone cries when they see it.
