Our very sweet baby sisters
You know, our mom had lots of babies.... (seven)
you would think two more girls would have been ho hum.
But it was not!
In 1966 twins were a big deal.
We were all so delighted to have these exact wonderful darling twins
belong to our family.
Janice who resembles our dad and Janet who resembles our mom.
I remember the morning they were born.
Grandma Hansen had come in the night and was in the kitchen.
It was very sunny Sunday morning.
I remember the phone call that they were both girls and running to tell the Irvings.
I remember exactly what their room looked like and the little bottle holders and their twin stroller.
But mostly I remember always being amused and delighted by their sweetness and happiness.
I was nine.
They have grown to have wonderful families of their own and I know they love their children just as they were loved.
That's the thing about love.
It stays with you.
I love you Janice. (A baby)
I love you Janet. (B baby)
Always and forever.
p.s. Janice is enjoying the book in the picture above and it is perfect because she LOVES books very much to this day. I guess that stays with a girl too.
