Our Twins are 12 and were Ordained Today.



Wow, 12 years ago I was falling in love the second time in my life, obviously the first was Dennis, but when I held my 2  and 3  pound twins for the first time I fell in love a second and third time.  I knew when I held them the 1st time that Heavenly Father had blessed me with 2 very special little boys.  It is often hard to remember all of those feelings.  When I first held them so little and sweet and so vulnerable to this new life.  I was so overwhelmed and overjoyed at the responsibility that was before me and today was no exception, what a special day.  It was definitely emotional for me.  Brendan and Jordan turned 12 on Tuesday, but they received the Preisthood today.  I think that today I realized how old Dennis and I are.  Our boys have grown up so fast right before our eyes.  Seeing the boys in their suits brought tears to my eyes.  They were so cute and so excited to start this new time in their life.  Their dad and I are so proud of them and love them so much.  I am sure that this is the beginning of many days to come when I reflect on how quickly the years have gone by and in 7 years I will be kissing them good bye for 2 years.  It is all moving by so fast.  I am so grateful that Heavenly Father has entrusted me to be their mother and my only hope is that I can teach them all they need to know as they continue on in the next few years.  I was blessed to be the mother of twins and there truly is two to love.

You are doing such a great job as a Mother. What a wonderful family you are raising. Wow 12 years old, they were so little when I first met them I can't believe that was 9 years ago already. Tell the boys congrats on their big milestone! Merry Christmas

I still remember when your boys were born and when you were finally able to bring them home from the hospital. They were so tiny! I can't believe how fast time has gone by, how much they've grown and how handsome they are! Congratulations! 12. the priesthood. wow.
