Happy Birthday to My Twins

My sweet twin girls turned 11 today. Eleven years ago, I was blessed with 2 precious baby girls who were born 8 weeks early. You can read more of their birth story here.


Today I looked at my daughters and saw 2 remarkable young ladies, each with their own unique personalities. Soccer Girl is independent and loves helping me around the house. Earlier this week, she had the chance to play in her first ever varsity soccer game with our homeschool girls' team. She had a great time and played really well.
Ballerina is sweet and caring. I would venture to say that she is the most loving person I have ever met. She's still quite a bookworm, which is definitely NOT a bad thing. We joke that one day we will all be working for her because she is so knowledgeable from all the reading she does.
The wonder twins are just like every other pre-teen girl - loving Frozen, so of course we had a Frozen themed birthday party. Blue and silver sparkly was perfect for decorations.


The girls played the Skittles game. Each girl was given a drinking straw and a small cup. Then one girl was given a large bowl of Skittles, and the girl next to her had number cube. The girl with the Skittles bowl had to use her straw to suck up as many Skittles and put them in her cup, while the girl with the number cube tried to roll a 6. As soon as a 6 was rolled, the girl with the number cube took the Skittles bowl and the girl next to her took the number cube. The girls had a great time!
