Knitting, spinning, pets, food and other thoughts

Happy, happy birthday …


babies! Shortly before midnight 44 years ago yesterday, life got much more hectic than we anticipated. Instead of the expected large single baby, we had twin girls.

Everything seemed peaceful when H left for work (60+ miles away) that afternoon, but a little while later the action started. I called H and my mom, dropped our son at the baby sitter, then drove myself to town (about 10 miles) and sat at the hospital and waited … and waited … finally at 11:32pm, a baby girl; no wait, we’re not done yet … another baby girl at 11:46pm! Life’s never been dull. Now we’re watching them with their kids πŸ˜‰

  5. Very fun photos! Happy birthday to your two and what a surprise!

  6. Ok Mom, which one is me in the photo where one of us is sort of upside down? You didn’t label the photo. I can’t tell. Same with the baby photos. It’s fun to see these photos. I’ll have to show my kids.

  7. If the photos aren’t labeled, it’s because I don’t know which is which πŸ˜‰
