Oh happy day...happy day!

Born on the same day, two gifts from above,
lives entwined, two babies to love.
~Author Unknown

Twice as much to love...
two blessings from above. 

God touched our hearts so deep inside...
our special blessing multiplied.  

Sisters are different flowers from the same garden.

All who would win joy, must share it; 
happiness was born a twin.  
~Lord Byron

So we grew together
Like to a double cherry, seeming parted,
But yet an union in partition,
Two lovely berries moulded on one stem...
~William Shakespeare

Life is two-riffic.

Not double trouble, but twice blessed. 

A sister is a forever friend.

It's been one year since these 'forever friends' shared a birthday cake.

Today they will be sharing one again.
We are missing out on the fun...
but send our love.

We'll be home soon!

Happy 10th birthday,
Emerson and Spencer!

With Love....


  1. Okay, this one is nearly giving me heart palpitations. Ten? They're almost as tall as their mama! Hope that they have a fantastic birthday and that they get to celebrate with you soon.

  2. What sweeties!! I'm sure they'll have a fantastic birthday celebration - and then do it all over again when Grammy gets home! :) (it was always a secret little wish of mine to have twins - maybe I'll be doubly blessed as a grammie :)

  3. They're so beautiful! I remember when my youngest turned ten. He woke up that morning and announced "now I'm in double digits!" haha What a milestone.

  4. Happy Birthday Spencer and Emerson..such beautiful girls! Have a wonderful day!

  5. Wow ..they can't imagine just how blessed they are. I just can't imagine how wonderful it must be to have a twin sister.
    I think they are so dear. . .and wish them a happy birthday!

  6. Oh how sweet it is! Happy Birthday girls!!

  7. Happy Birthday,Emerson and Spencer. !0 years - Wow!! I well remember the day when I heard TWO were on the way. Have a great day - wonder what Grammy and G-pa will be bringing you - Oh the suspense of waiting.
    Love you, Aunt Martha

  8. Ten? TEN? Oh for goodness sake, the little babes are nearly women fully grown. And beautifully so!

  9. Such precious girls... we love you SO much Spence and Emme :)

  10. Happy Birthday to two beautiful young ladies. I love the way you've documented their growth in this post.

  11. This is the sweetest post!! We are all rejoicing right along with you!

  12. Oh, I know how happy double birthdays are to celebrate. You sure did a special tribute to these two adorable granddaughters of yours. What fun for you all to watch them grow older, and to observe the love and friendship they have with each other. By you not being around to celebrate, just gives them something more to look forward to, when you come home.

  13. Sweet, sweet post! Your big girls really are getting big - and they are so lovely in every photo. A double blessing!

  14. Happy birthday to Emerson and Spencer! They were beautiful babies and are growing up to be even more beautiful young ladies!

  15. Those twins are beauties! How fun to have a twin. My Mom is a twin (sister) and she had twin brothers as well. Can you imagine....11 kids, two sets of twins !!!

    Enjoy your celebration when you return.
    Safe travels Judy....

  16. Wow! Ten years ago I'm sure life looked quite overwhelming to a certain new mommy! But now, to be on this end and see two beautiful girls who have brought so much life and joy to the family, must be very rewarding!
