THREE SISTERS

The Granddaughters in their kimono
for shichi-go-san in November last year.
That's Kaya (now 6) in the middle,
Mitsuki with the formally positioned hands on the left
and Miasa, the younger twin (both now 4), on the right.

They are so beautiful like three little dolls all dressed up.

Oh my gosh!! These young ladies are stunning; to say the least. You must be swelled with grandpapa pride for them.

OHMIGAWSH! They are PRECIOUS!! Kaya is such a grown up big sister. And it is hard to believe they are 4 already!! WOW!! Now that should be your screensaver!! Now you need to post one of echo and your daughter in their kimonos!

Beautiful! And what colours! Does the choice of colour carry any significance in the kimono? Kaya seems very wise too, somehow already a bit grown up.

Just curiosity: is it possible to run with that footwear? Or do the twins shed them to distract any followers like they used to do with their boots?

The younger the wearer, the brighter the kimono, more or less. And the footwear doesn't matter; you can't run in a kimono anyway (not the way kids run!), it's so snug around the ankles; and besides, it would be SO un-ladylike...
