Two blondies...

Colette and Carly... HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!!!

Unbelievable! Seventeen years ago yesterday these two tiny babies came into our lives. Having twins has its hard times but the GREAT times outweigh the bad. They are so close to each other and makes me so proud. I know you have heard me say it before, but I do believe I am so blessed and lucky to be their moms! This year is their Senior year and I know it will pass all too fast. In a blink of an eye we will be attending their high school graduation. Just remember girls we love you so much! I know everyone has heard the saying about twins being double trouble. Well I never once believed it, because ours were truly double blessings. I could not have had these two beautiful girls if it were not for the sacrifice that their birthparents made that very emotional day 17 years ago. I love them and thank them so much!

A very quick note to say that Annabel has had a good two days. She seems to have more energy and happy overall. She finish one antibiotic and the second will be done in about 2 more days. So maybe all this was tummy ache from the medicines. I am praying...

Happy birthday to your beautiful twin girls. And yes, you are right, this year will go by in the blink of an eye (will they have public exams to sit, as they would in this country, oh the stress?), and they'll be off and away before you know it. Here, people often take what's called a "gap year" before university, when they travel or go and work abroad or something like that (my own dear girl was an au pair in a Swiss family for 9 months, and then used her savings to travel in the USA for 3 weeks), but I believe that's not the norm in the USA?

Glad to hear young Annabel is feeling a little better - antibiotics can pull you down quite dreadfully. My poor husband was on them a few weeks ago, and oh, the fuss.....
