Welcome Home Twins

My twin nieces are home and that is a blessing indeed! Ella on the left weighs 5 lbs and Mattie on the right weighs 4 lbs! They are precious miracles from God and every one's prayers were answered, as they are coming home one month earlier than originally predicted. My day each week to care for them will be on Thursdays and I just can't wait. What an honor for me even if I have to drive 30 minutes to get there! God is good.

What precious little miracles :)
You'll have such fun caring them. It will give you great practice for the day when you're a Grammy!

Nancy, this is wonderful news. The twins are doing great. Not to take credit for anything, but I did predict that they would.

Enjoy your Thursdays with these precious little girls. Yes, God is good.

I was just going to use the word precious and see that susie already did, but it's the perfect word.

Hey, have you ever thought you left a comment and the discovered that you didn't publish it. a few days ago I left a comment about how hot it was up here, too. It was in the upper 80's this weekend. That's a record for Michigan in October. I also told about how it was so hot on our wedding day that the taper candles at our reception drooped over and lie flat on the table--still in their glass star bases--before we even lit them. I must have hit "preview" in stead of "publish." Sorry about that.

Anyway, the twins are precious!

Susie Q- You were right and bless you for your optimism. Your twin story ended positively also, and I was delighted... no need for tears. I plan to enjoy every minute on Thursdays. This will cut into my blogging time. I hope everyone will understand.

Tom- Precious is the perfect word, I agree!

I have noticed that about my comments before. I think it is the word verification thing (imagine that)- I will think it cleared when actually I need to go back and try the letters again... especially when I am in a hurry.

The wedding weather story was neat, thanks for rewriting.

I hope the Michigan weather cools down before the 18th... yes- I am headed your way to visit my sister. I doubt we will be in your neck of the woods... this trip will be to watch my nieces participate in their various activities (soccer, swim, etc..)

Nancy, they are gorgeous!! They are indeed a blessing. That's a good sign that they're coming home a month earlier than expected.

I deleted my previous blog, but I have a new one and you can connect to me through this comment. I am re-adding you to my blogroll.

Cheers,
Josie

Chris- You are right- GOD IS GOOD! Thanks for stopping by.

Josie- I hope you had a great Thanksgiving- that sounds so wierd for us Americans. Thanks for the heads up on the new blog and for adding me to your blogroll. I can't wait to head on over and check it out.

What wonderful news! The parents must be so relieved. They are so tiny - I wonder how big our twins will be!

Tammy- I am so excited about helping my nieces on Thursdays. Last year I volunteered at the Elementary School where I taught before reitrement,on Thursdays, so I figured I should put family first instead of helping there this year.

Dawn- I am already praying for your twins hoping they make it full term. Get lots of rest... you and Kristen are going to have your hands full.
