Happy Birthday!

After a busy day with my parents in town I wanted to jump on here before the day is over to wish my mother-in-law and her twin sister a happy birthday.

Dear Betty and Viviane,
It was a beautiful day here with just enough snow to be pretty. I hope it was a nice day there as well for your birthday. The boys and I have been sick, but the boys at least are getting better. Caleb is excited to have his first loose tooth, while I am a little sad to see him growing up! They will start playing baseball for our church team soon. Last year Caleb was the youngest kid on the team. He got to start at only 4 yrs old since his daddy coached, and so now that Malachi is 4 he wants to play too. I'm sure the two of them together on a team will be lots of fun. Yesterday someone asked me (in all seriousness, not jokingly) if they were twins. If I hadn't been so sick I might would have burst out laughing! They attract a lot of attention everywhere we go, and when Christina is with us (not as often since she's in school) people really stare. I can only imagine the looks we will get after we get our next two children home. Ernie is looking forward to having a teenage son, and he thinks Micaelyn will be irresistible. We feel blessed beyond measure and are ever grateful to God for His many blessings. We wish the same for both of you. Happy Birthday!

In celebration of your life as twins, here are some pictures of our own "twins."

They may play together...

cruise together...

bathe together...

sneak ice cream and watch tv together...

sleep together...

plan mischief together...

have the same facial expressions...

and the same gestures...

they may be brothers...

but the next time somebody asks me if this child...

and this child are twins...

I may just say, "Yes, they are. The doctors were so amazed they have become subjects of an international research project on genetics!"

Why does this make me cry happy tears?!? God's goodness is incomprehensible!

HA! I LOVE this. I'll always think of you when people ask if my girls are twins!
