Happy Birthday!

That was THEN

It's hard for me to believe, but 11 years have gone by since this picture was taken. My twins, my middle children, will be 11 years old tomorrow. Where has the time gone? You blink, and they are half grown. My oldest, the one in the middle, just asked me today if she could start wearing mascara. Just yesterday, she was playing with dolls. Wasn't she? Before I know it, they will be driving and (gasp) dating. Then they will be gone. I know they need to spread their wings and fly, but I will miss them. I already do just thinking about it.

My children have always been homeschooled. They don't get on a bus in the wee morning hours, spend all day at school, and get home late in the afternoon. They are here with me, driving me nuts. Just kidding! Well, kind of. When you have 5 kids, they are bound to get on the nerves occasionally. But, I love them dearly and I am grateful for the time I have with them, watching them grown and learn. But, seriously....they will be 11?

At ages 6 1/2 & 8 1/2

Were they really that little and cute? 

I guess it wasn't exactly "yesterday". LOL But still, mascara?

Once you have twins, life is never "normal". These two are such hams. Well, when they aren't fighting, that is!

This is NOW:

La La

Happy Birthday to you both! I love you and I hope your day is as special as the both of you are!
