Ruby Tuesday-Christmas and Hanukkah



Told you I like red!!! This was our tree a few years ago.

Our grandsons celebrate both Christmas and Hanukkah. Here are Noah and Mima (in 2006) lighting the Hanukkah candles with Grandpa holding Ethan, Mommy holding Luka, and Papa looking on.

OK, I know you are all busy checking out everyone's Ruby Tuesday but take the time to bookmark me and drop back to check out my blog. I am a retired Special Ed teacher who now spends most of her time on Sanibel Island, Florida which is a Sanctuary Island for wildlife. I volunteer for a wildlife hospital. I am also the proud grandma of 5 wonderful grandkids and brag about them often!! I also have a blog called Branches and Roots where I talk about genealogy and my ancestors. OK, enough about me. So if you really want to see red go to Work of the Poet

You do indeed like red. But hey, part of your holiday decorating is forever done!

What a festive Christmas tree, especially surrounded by that bright warm red wallpaper. Wonderful photo of the lighting of the candles too.

My tree is red themed this year as well. :) Yours is beautiful.
My first Ruby Tuesday.

that tree set-up is beautiful

and how lovely that both holidays are celebrated

I celebrated both as a child, I loved watching my Grandmother light the candles

I think it is beautiful that two sets of grandparents can share the grandchildren under the same roof!!! Wonder if that will go well for us when we move to SD!
