They're here!

They're here.  Our beautiful new twins. 

Kaylee--3 lbs 15/12 oz.  15" long

Brandon--4 lbs 61/2 oz.  17" long

Both are doing quite well.  We are so happy to welcome them to the family and pray they continue to grow and improve even more.

Took Danielle to the airport in Milwaukee yesterday to go visit a friend in Idaho.  Boy what a mess.  They have the road all under construction, both in an out.  I must say though, it was still quite easy (just slow going) to get in an out.  Then the poor girls flight was delayed 2 hours.  Her girl friend does not wait patiently, lol.  

Tomorrow we're all off to the Zoo.  Have to take the same road in but turn in the other direction and Jared assures me there is no contructin that way.  Hope he's right.  There is a bunch of us.  Sherry, her kids and grandkids, Jodi and her son and future d-i-l and grandkids. Jared and his kids, Us and Nicole and one of my grandsons is riding with one of Sherrys kids.  I think that's all, but with us you can never be sure. Rhonda would like to go but with the new babies that is not possible.  Guess we'll just have to plan another trip next year, :).  Making sure camera's are all charged up.  Want so much to get a good picture of the Polar Bear.  Just love watching him swim around in that pool.  Carson is teasing her dad about not going into the reptile house.  He has this thing about snakes.  We also have to keep Nicole clear of the giraffe's.  For some reason those things terrify her.  But, all in all it will be a fun day.  Expensive I think, but fun.  Guess we should take our jar of coins in and see what we have extra to take along.  Hope it's not too hot. 

Well I guess I had better get the laundry finished and the camera's charged. 
You all have a good weekend.

    (¸.•´ (¸.•` ¤ A double blessing indeed!
    You know what they say
    Two heads are better than one.
    And with twins in the family
    You'll have double the fun.
    Two precious bundles to cuddle and kiss.
    Life just doesn't get any better than this.

    Sounds like here... we actually have two types of seasons... winter and road construction! Uuugh! Here's hoping that all you two legged animals have tons of fun at the zoo.

    (¸.•´ (¸.•` ¤ We all have our own reasons to celebrate... so let's do just that, and celebrate all we have because of where we live, in either of the two greatest countries there are!

    If you celebrate the Fourth of July - Happy Independence Day. If you celebrate July 1st - Happy CANADA Day!
    The love of one's country is a splendid thing.

  10. Kaylee and Brandon are absolutely wonderful, Terry; you and your family have such good reason to he happy and proud. Me? I'm tickled for all of you and promise I'll keep on doing what I can to work toward a better future for those beautiful babies.

    I hope your tests turn out okay.

    Mucho huggos!
