Oh Dreidel, Dreidel, Dreidel, I Made A Lot of Pay!

Girls just wanna have pun

Today we had our annual family Hannukah party -- aka Dreidel for Dollars. Yes, I know Hannukah is over but we Goldmans have always been a little behind. Before getting into it, we posed for a pic with all the girls. Apparently stripes are in with the under 25 crowd!

I call it Suyap (reverse payus)

Then it was time for one with the boys +1. Looks like Uncle D is trying to grow on his head what Uncle Joshie has under his chin.


I decided to go in for a closer look. Yep, Uncle D's got some something growing under there. He always did like his fuzzies.

Something in your kiss just told me, my sometime is now... So good(uh, uh) so good (uh, uh) I got you!

Mash-ups all the rage these days thanks to Glee, so Grandpa, Mommy and I rocked out to James Brown and Dean Martin -- I Feel Good/Everybody Loves Somebody.

Domo Arigato Mr. Roboto

Uncle Joshie, Uncle Noah (or just Unkie as I call him), Uncle D, and Cousin Ryan got into the act and a dance-off ensued. I busted out my best robot.

And if, by patient, you mean maniacally, then, yes, I was patient.

Soon it was time for presents. I waited patiently for my turn.

He's not the dogg, he's the katt!

And then I laid into them. Cousin Sara helped me unwrap. And Daddy helped me rap.

And why do these bills smell like perfume??

Finally, it was time for dreidel. We all broke out our singles. Not sure why Uncle D had so many on him.

The house always takes 10%

Elmo and I surveyed the action to make sure there were no false gimels.

Daddy needs to check in to Dreidels Anonymous

The stakes were too rich for my blood (and Aunt Karen was cleaning up) so I decided to quit while I was ahead. If only Daddy had taken my lead before getting suckered into the high-stakes spin-off with Cousin Rob.

Plug and Play

After dreidel, it was time for surgery. Great-Grandpa Irv started by extracting an outlet plug from my stomach. It was an electrifying experience.

Would you trust a doctor with a purple hat?!?

Then Dr. Ryan gave me my shots. I was not so patient this time.

This isn't what I thought you meant when you asked if I was ready for my solo!

I was left to recover on my own in the waiting room. Where's health care reform when you need it?!?
