Twelve Years Ago....

...our twins were born. They were tiny, each weighing in at about 3 1/2 pounds. They spent the first month or so of their life in the NICU. The nurses "bunked" them together, they seemed to function better that way.

We brought them home and spent a lot of time with them snuggled up on our chests.

Rob had a bit more hair then!

Today they are twelve years old. They still enjoy being together, and would rather play with each other than anyone else on the earth.

Playing house "Oklahoma Style".

She is your mirror, shining back at you with a world of possibilities. She is your witness, who sees you at your worst and best, and loves you anyway. She is your partner in crime, your midnight companion, someone who knows when you are smiling, even in the dark. She is your teacher, your defense attorney, your personal press agent, even your shrink. She is your twin, your sister. ~Barbara Alpert

Happy Birthday Payton and Paige!
