A few things

1. I mean, how does no one else comment on how much fudge and pt look alike except me?

2. It's nice to see that you and your wife actually look like you're in your twenties now instead of looking like a pair of twelve year olds at your wedding.

3. As uncle moishe says, "it's the greatest siddur party in the whole wide world"

4. Did the girsa of siddur change over the years or is it just me?

5. Is it me or do all the boys look ecstatically happy and the girls look kind of like "hurry up and get the picture over, I'm sick of smiling?"

6. Yasher Koach to you, for making the time to go to each of your kids' siddur party. I imagine there are a number of doctors (and nurses) that would just skip it.

Mazel Tov.
We have one scheduled for Wednesday with our drama queen.

SR: Thanks!

AM:

1. Everybody says it. But I don't see it.

2. Kids will age you.

3. Uncle Moishy was never at THIS party...

4. Somewhere in the middle they went from the standard learner's siddur to a regular art scroll, but then switched back to the one with the big type. Really depends on who is sponsoring for the year.

5. The boys don't seem to care if they look goofy. But The PT was definitely in one of her moods. If I could have, I would have pryed her lips open. You should see the picture with the Rabbi!

6. I actually had a gig this time on the other side of town. I had to race out the door after shabbos, drop my equipment off, race back to the west side, go to the siddur party, and then zoom back to the gig. Do you think she'll remember this when she has to go pick out a nursing home for me?

SD: Good luck to you! The PT was hopping across the room to get her siddur. I yelled out "You CAN walk! It was only your arm that broke!"

PT - check out the sizes of those specs from the 1980's! Wow, they are bigger than the PT's whole face!

It is not really right of me to make fun since you could use one of my lenses to serve a 10-course meal on.

PsychoToddler said...

Hey! Those specs were from the 90s!

I yelled out "You CAN walk! It was only your arm that broke!"

Hee hee. That is something that every parent can appreciate.

What a great series of shots!

The curriculum is so consistent - the siddur party usually falls out right around the time of create-a-silhouette-of-yourself.

I remember having the part of the letter "tzadi" at my siddur presentation. It's odd to think that it was over 20 years ago!

Love the pics! Mazel Tov!

Ezzie said...

Now THAT is cute. :) Mazel Tov!

When did they start having Siddur parties? I don't remember one... was I out sick that day? Or was this a tradition that somehow missed Silver Spring? Or is it just that I'm almost 50 years old and everything cool started long after I was already grown.

Sigh.

Anyway, what I really wanted to say was: This post demonstrates just how important famules are. Every other day.

Very exciting! Mazel Tov! Of course, with the siddur comes more homework!

Eeees said...

Loving the siddur party pics!
How come you and the Mrs. don't seem to have aged at all between kids??

(Oh, for the record, add me to the list of people who think that Fudge and The PT look alike.)

Shira Salamone said...

Yeah, you two haven't aged a day. The only thing that's changed is Mrs. Balabusta's sheitlach (wigs). :)

Mazal tov!

So so cute! Mazel Tov and thanks for sharing.

the apple said...

How sweet! Mazal tov to the PT.

Bonvallet said...

Such a beautiful family. I feel like you are old friends of ours.

PsychoToddler said...

Wick: I've kept in better touch with you over the last four years than with my actual relatives, so as far as I'm concerned, you're in.

mrs. balabusta has perfect hair on every siddur-party (as usual) :)
