Happy 21st Birthday

Today is the day 21 years ago that I gave birth to my sons, who had been termed Twin A and Twin B by my doctor on my first ultrasound when my husband and I first learned our family would double in a few months!  It was Partriots Day here is Massachusetts and Michael came into the world at 5:50 p.m. and Jeffrey at 5:52 p.m.   Our lives were forever changed for the better!

I am constantly shown how quickly time flies!  Just to look back at how small they were when they were born to now being much taller than we are.  They have grown up so fast and into fine young men.   We get to celebrate with them and their friends and that is nice.

The Technique Junkies Banded Color Technique is so much fun and so easy!  Stay tuned for a posting on how to do this technique!
