Sunday Snapshot {Best Friends}

 These girls are the very BEST of friends.....
 And cousins.....
 Which is kinda cool
 And sometimes very reminiscent of  my sister and I
 They are goofy
 And silly
Just like my sister and I

10 years ago, my twin sister and BEST friend Tara found out she was pregnant-her first.  Everyone was elated.  Thrilled.  All but me....sad but true.  I was happy for her of course, but sad for me because deep down inside I wanted it to be me!  We had been struggling with fertility issues for years with no success.  She was on her honeymoon and poof-pregnant.  Some divine intervention must have been in place, because 2 weeks to the day she sprung her news, something amazing happened....I too was pregnant!  We couldn't believe it.  My first reaction was fear.  Fear that I was going to somehow take away from this amazing time for her.  Instead-she and her husband embraced it, couldn't wait to share in this exciting journey-together!  Then we found out we were both having girls....GIRLS-together....oh the plans we started to make.  The same outfits they would wear, the bows in their hair, the gift of being able to conquer all the woes of parenting.   It was great...perfect.  Our only fear was....would they love the idea of it as much as we did?  The answer-YES YES YES.  They are the best of friends and the worse of enemies.  They are in fact-my sister and I.

What an awesome thing to be pregnant and sharing that wonderful journey with your own twin sister! Oh how lovely that would be. My kids are going to be so old by the time my twin sis finally has kids.

I think the holidays for the kids is the best part:
I know I have the best time watching my two kids open all there presents. Seeing the excitement and joy on their faces is the best gift I could get. Both already

have their lists ready but my six year old insists on reminding me about a certain toy she wants they are called
Zoobles and as far as she is concerned, they are the greatest thing out there. They would make a

great gift for any child so be sure to get some for the holidays for your little ones.
