He was sick and missed the congregational Hanukkah dinner and you would not believe the amount of food they sent me home with! We could have fed an army!

Anyway, it's been easy for the most part. My MIL is very adamant that Sadie will be receiving Christmas gifts from their family and I'm not sure how I feel about that. However Christmas for them is very much a Hallmark holiday. They don't go to church...etc.

We are having a brit bat for Sadie this fall and I hope they'll be okay being apart of it.
this is exactly how our family is, except we do celebrate christmas with my inlaws.. they have never been to church though, and are starting hebrew school this fall
