So Very Sad

I have some very sad news. My sister-in-law's (Shmuel's sister) husband passed away this morning in Israel. He just had his 43rd birthday a week or so ago, and it happened very suddenly. He wasn't sick, to my knowledge, so we are all shocked and devastated. It's such an incredible tragedy and my heart is breaking for Rebecca (my sister-in-law). She asked me today if I would please please please post photos of the twins for her to see, because it would make her feel better. So, these are pictures from Purim, which was yesterday, so Beh will have something to make her smile. I know that Jake ז"ל (her deceased husband) loved the twins very much and really enjoyed Skyping with them, so he would have also smiled seeing these.

What are you doing Mom?

Yum...crib rails are delicious!


Hey, opened the velcro on my costume. Oops!

I love stacking rings.

I love the stacker even better!

Hey, what's down there?




I'm really handsome.


That's all for now, and I hope that it put a smile on your face.

Am so very sorry to hear about it. I pray for his widow. I pray that she finds a way to bear the loss.

And yep, the twins should have been able to have Uncle Jake in their lives.

Do you know that the word verification I have is 'glumi'!!!

My heart goes out to your sister-in-law.

Your kiddos are precious - I know they will put a smile on Rebecca's face.
