Candles and Tzitzes

The twins turned three today...well, it's their Hebrew birthday. So that means that Jewishly they are three. That's actually a REALLY big deal. It means that Dovid now gets to wear a kippa (aka yarmulke) and tzitzes, and Chana gets to light Shabbos candles every week. It also means that Chana only wears skirts/dresses now, just like her mommy! Here are some pictures from the big event.



We're going to take pictures of Chana lighting her Shabbos candles (before Shabbos actually starts, of course) so we'll post those later on, and the twins have a birthday parting on Sunday. At that birthday party, also called an upsherin for Dovid, Dovid will get his first haircut. Yikes!!! I love those curls and will miss them. :-(

When Burrito got his first haircut (at 16 months -- he seriously could not see through his bangs, like a sheepdog) my FIL, who was raised Orthodox but is no longer observant, jokingly chastised me that we didn't wait for an upsherin at age 3.

Burrito isn't even 2 1/2 yet and if he hadn't had the 4 haircuts he's had (and anyone else might have given him 10 at this point; sometimes I let his hair get shoulder length between haircuts) his hair would probably be to his waist already.
