Birthday Girls!

December is a month filled with fun events for us!  Kate isn’t the only one with a birthday this month; Isabella and Sophia turned 9 this year, just 3 days before Christmas.

They were thrilled to celebrate their birthday and sooo happy to open gifts right after breakfast.

A few gifts were for both of them to open together – like these “talky-walkies”, as Isabella called them.

And a few of the gifts are the same type of gift, but slightly different, depending on their taste and personality, or in the case of the ones they are opening here, different sizes!  They each received a pair of boots – but Sophia’s are one size bigger than Isabella’s.

It’s hard to believe it has been 9 years!  Here’s a lovely shot of me a short time before they arrived – trying to find a comfy spot on the couch!

(notice how I didn’t enlarge this picture quite so much as the others… there’s obviously just no need to do that….)

 

These pictures show how tiny they were at almost 6 weeks old!  Skinny little legs!

I’m holding Izzy (as she is spitting up!) … and Glenn is holding Sophia..  Any pictures from those days were few and far between – and usually very unprofessional…  who had time to take pictures!?

                        Here’s a shot of them together – in the very willing arms of Grandma!

Thought you might enjoy a look at how they’ve grown…
