I so love watching the kids grow ....
This little guy has looks and personality that don't quit. He has brought joy and comfort to his parents and grandparents during a tragic time in their lives. He carried this gift around all night and showed it to every person there!
All those pretty girls .... Check out these dimples!
And the boys just grow like weeds. Their rite of passage: passing up their tall uncle.
I wrote before about my favorite tradition: sharing the oplatek. "Some traditions we observed as children haven’t carried forward, but this one – the exchanging of the oplatek – is still observed at our annual family Christmas party. There’s so many of us that we sometimes lose track: “did I get you yet?” “you already hit me, girl!” “help, I ran out of oplatek!” There’s lots of tears and laughter and kissing and hugging – I love it."
