Hey, today is a special day... today is the 42nd anniversary of the birth of my identical twin daughters in Anchorage, Alaska! Wow it's been 42 years already- woe is me, I'M OLD!
Here are a few pic's of them - then and more recent...
The funny thing is that we their family don't think they look all that much alike anymore - but they are constantly being mistaken for the other when one visits the other at Church... this happened just this past Sunday! They thought they were talking to Cristie when actually they were talking to Cindie and she didn't have a clue as to what they were talking about. She finally said that they needed to talk to Cristie about that... funny.
As babies we had to keep name tags on them so that even we would know which was which... We even got them special gold anklets to wear with an "A" and "B" on them since that's what they were known as in the hospital until we came up with names for two girls we weren't expecting at all! Cristie weighed in at 4 pounds and Cindie weighed 3 pounds 6 & 3/4 ounces.
They are very much alike even though they aren't so identical in looks. One year when we lived in Oregon we were having a family reunion... Cristie lived in Arizona and Cindie lived in Michigan. When we picked them up at the airport we got Cristie then ran to the other terminal to get Cindie and when she stepped through the gates she had on the exact same shoes and similar purse and her twin!
Well, I've got to go get ready... I'm going shopping & movie with them and their other two sisters for their birthday... fun times!
