Friday Night Blessings of the Children

We do a "trickle down" Blessing of the Children, starting with the Great Grandmother:

She blesses the Grandparents;
they bless us, the Parents;
we bless our Children. 

We're lucky to have four generations.  We always introduce the blessing by saying:

"And now Great Grandmother, who has known God the longest, will begin the 'trickle down' blessings!" 

We use the traditional Hebrew language of blessing girls in the names of the four foremothers and boys in the names of the three forefathers.
