I had twin sisters

Yep, that's right. I did.

Let me start with saying, that I wanted to post this on Saturday, but never had time to.

In early 1978, my mom got pregnant. Later she found out she was having triplets. TRIPLETS! Can you imagine? Naturally.

At 4 months pregnant, one of them miscarried. They got her stabalized and were certain the other two were gonna be fine.
At 5 months pregnant, she went into labor, from what they believe was complications due to the first miscarrage.

She gave birth to two little girls. She named them Sara and Tara. Sara was born first. And then 3 minutes later Tara was born.

They were so tiny. Sara was 6 oz and Tara was 5 oz. Together they weighed less than a can of pepsi. They were so tiny. My dad says they were smaller than his hand.

Sara lived for 35 minutes. And Tara lived for 19 minutes.

It was less than 3 months later that she got pregnant with me. My dad said she called me her miracle girl. She was praying I'd be a girl.

Saturday, June 28, 2008 would've been their 30th birthday.

Happy birthday Sara and Tara! I wish I could've known you.

The new do!

OK, so we were gonna wait until December, AFTER her birthday party, to get her hair cut. But we got to thinking about that. If she wanted to have Hannah Montana hair for her Hannah Montana party, we'd have to cut her bangs. And I was NOT going there.
So I found her a Hannah Montana wig, and it's not a trashy wig. It looks like the real deal.
SO, she got her hair cut yesterday. 13 inches were taken off and donated to Locks Of Love! I am so proud of my little girl.

Long overdue update

I meant to post sooner, but as some of you already know, I got a promotion at work. Yeah! I am evening shift manager now! Got a 45 cent raise, guaranteed 40 hours per week and guaranteed mondays and tuesdays off every week.

Just had a birthday. I'm 29 now. The closer I get to 35, the more scared I get. I don't wanna discuss why right now, but I don't wanna be 35. If I could just skip it and go straight from 34 to 36, that would be perfectly fine by me.

Going to IL next weekend. Gonna visit my Grandpa, and a cousin on the other side of the family. Then heading to O'Fallon to visit some friends.

Not much else going on right now.

Morgan got her ears pierced!

Well, she did it! She actually got her ears pierced.
She sat perfectly still. Didn't even flinch...until it was done. She jumped. She let out a scream. And she cried for about 10 minutes. But then she was done.
She actually went through with it.

Next mission....she wants to get her hair cut and donate her pony tail to Locks of Love. { http://www.locksoflove.org/ }
I've convinced her to wait until she has her birthday party in December, because she's wanting to have a Hannah Montana party complete with the long blonde hair.
Right now, she's got a 13 inch pony tail, imagine what it will be in 6 months.

This was her idea...not mine.
