Happy 16th Birthday!

Wow!! 16 years ago I was getting ready for the day to head to my sister-in-law's home.  I finally made it there traveling over bumpy roads, trying to drive with a pillow on my lower back, but, my stomach was to big! When I arrived at her house, got out and my father-in-law said, "you don't look so good!"  I never dreamed that I was in labor!! It was still 6 weeks until their due date!! Went into her home and played with the nephews, walked around, laid on her couch, went upstairs, all the while trying to stay cool in her non air-conditioned home!! Char finally came upstairs to check on me and then she got worried!! She called hubby and told him to come home quick!! He arrived 30 minutes later and off we went to Molly's house, the Amish lady.  We traveled 45 min. to get there and when we arrived she came out and said, "What are you doing here?"  I told her I thought it was just false labor, but she looked at the paper where the times where written down and said, "No, this is real labor!"  Oh no!! lol  We go into the room and she said I was 9cm and Bryan asked, "How far does she have to go?"  I wanted to laugh, but I was hurting!!! Breanna came into the world and 3:13 p.m. and then Brittany joined her sister at 3:27 p.m. and they have pretty much been inseparable since!!! 

I have so enjoyed having raised them so far!!! They are a joy, most of the time!!!
Happy 16th twins!!! I love you!!!
