I have to wish my twins a happy birthday. Can you believe I forgot to get their cards in the mail on time? I thought about it all last week...but as time got nearer,I forgot. Karen is the blonde and Liz is the brunette. When they were born, it was a handful for me. I had a five year old and a two and half year old . Angie was 5 and Kathy was 2 1/2. they were my little helpers. Angie would sit next to me and hold one of the babies while we feed them bottles. and Kathy would go get the diapers. That might be why we are close.:):)
The twins are good girls and hard working moms. They live near each other. They still are very close.
I won't tell you how old they are , but they are catching up with me. LOL. Liz is two minutes older than Karen...but now Liz is saying she's the younger one. LOL
Are there any twins in your families? Wishing all a great day. XO
No twins in my family, but I do love to see twins! Happy birthday to your sweet girls.ReplyDelete
Jackie, I have known a few sets of twins.I do think they have a bond. Thank you for the b-day wishes for my girls. Blessings to you, love, SusieDelete
Bless your heart...TWINS! Wishing them a beautiful birthday!ReplyDelete
You know I consider all my daughters my greatest gifts. Thank you for the b-day wishes for the twins.,Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
Happy Birthday to your lovely twins!! My best friend has triplets....I don't know how she survived when they were infants!ReplyDelete
I feel blessed to have all my girls. The first two weeks after the twins were born, my mother in law would come over during the day and let me rest. It probably saved my life. LOL. I could not imagine having more than two at once. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
We had a couple sets of twins in the 1700s and 1800s but none lately. My husband, Joe, is a twin though and he's the father of twins. Does that count? He and his brother were very close, but his brother died of cancer 23 years ago. Twins always seem to have a special bond.ReplyDelete
Kathy, I am so sad about Joe losing his twin brother....I too believe there's a bond with twins. Give Joe a mommy hug from me. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
You had your hands full for sure..I can't imagine caring for all those little ones..Guess you did OKReplyDelete
Missy, There were times when I thought I would lose my mind. LOL. I count my daughters as the best gifts I ever will have. Blessings to you, xoxo,SusieDelete
wow Susie, you really had your hands full with all those kids being close in age. Happy Birthday to your twins! What a sweet picture. Yes, there are just one set of twins in my family, my aunt and uncle. They are very close too.ReplyDelete
Have a happy week, dear Susie.
Thank you Sheri, for the wishes for my girls. It was a busy time in our lives when the twins were babies...but we made it and they are all wonderful daughters. I think twins do have a special bond for life. Blessings to you, stay warm. Love you, SusieDelete
How awesome! With my daughter doing IVF again, she may do more than one embryeo. I'm sure it was challenging at times with 4 under 4 but what a blessing.ReplyDelete
Your twins are cuties! How wonderful that they are still close. Sounds like a team effort when they were small...good times like that are remembered fondly. Yes, my husband has twin granddaughters, one of whom is serving on a ship in the Persian Gulf.ReplyDelete
Twins, oh my, you did have your hands full. No twins in my family, my sister and I are 16 months apart and our daughter is an only child.ReplyDelete
Janet, you have a small family. I had six brothers and four sisters. With my four daughters, I was busy as a young mother , but it was well worth it. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
Such a precious photo. Wow, you had your hands full, indeed, but I can only imagine how meaningful those memories of all your little ones are to you now. My aunts were twins. No twins since. xo ~ NancyReplyDelete
Nancy, I dress the twins alike a lot till they we in 1st grade..I let them be different. One was a tom boy and one was prissy. LOL. I remember seeing a sets of twins that were 80 years old and they still dressed alike. They were so cute too. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
Happy Birthday to the Twins. I bet they grew up to be gorgeous girls. Also congratulations on going through and completing the task of being a young mom of four kids not too far apart in age.ReplyDelete
We do not have any twins on either my husband's or my side of the family. It must be fun.
Thank you Munir...it was not always easy . But the struggles paid off ...I have four really wonderful daughters who grew up to be my best friends. I am blessed. Some times when I would call the girls, I would just yell twins and they would know. LOL. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
My goodness...I never knew you had twins. I can see how they look alike in their eyes.ReplyDelete
I know you had a handful...all of my kids are three years apart--all four of them. I feel like I got one out of diapers and then I had another one!! Still, they are priceless!
Blondie, I knew I wasn't going anywhere for twenty years after the twins were born. LOL. MY oldest two actually were good helpers...I know that sounds funny but it was so true. Plus if one woke up at night, to eat or be changed, I just went ahead and woke the other one up....cause you know as soon as I would have tried to go back to sleep that would not have worked. LOL. My daughters are now my best friends. I am blessed. Hope you are doing well. I think we may not get the next snow...yippee. Blessings to you, xoxo,SusieDelete
How sweet and special. No twins, but some Irish twins. xoxo SuReplyDelete
Irish twins...I am thinking red hair..so cute. The twins are always going to be my babies. LOL. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
I can't imagine having four under the age of five! You must have been one tired mamma! -JennReplyDelete
Jenn, I think any mom ever gets enough rest or so it seems. My oldest two girls truly were my little helpers. We had hard times and we had beautiful times. Thank goodness the good out shines the bad. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
Whew! You sure had your hands full with 4 under the age of 5! Happy Birthday to your twins. You must have had lots of fun birthday parties especially when they were young! There were no twins in my family, but I remember wishing for a twin sister when I was young. With 2 brothers, I just wished for a sister! lol!ReplyDelete
Have a great day!
Cheryl, We had little parties, never anything too big. But it was fun when I dressed the girls alike. I can see why you wanted a sisters. I had 4 sisters and 6 brothers...I used to want to be an only child. LOL. Blessings to you, hope you are feeling great. xoxo,SusieDelete
Happy Belated Birthday to your girls. We don't have any twins in our family-my youngest daughter always wanted twins, but all her kiddos are like two bundles of energy. LOL.ReplyDelete
Noreen, Your comment makes me think of a time when I told my oldest daughter that her son should have been twins...she said, "Why would you wish that on me mommy?" LOL. Blessings and thanks for the wishes, xoxo,SusieDelete
I missed visiting yesterday as I had my grandquads!! My mother had twins in 1958. Sadly, the little boy baby died and the girl baby was given away so we didn't grow up together. I wanted desperately to have twins when I had Amber and Benjamin. God in his infinite wisdom knew better. Now I realize what an amazing but challenging life with multiples can be. I think this must have been very hard for you but I imagine you rolled with it. Still.....ReplyDelete
Glad to hear they are still very close to each other and to you as well!
