Way Back When-esday - Cuties with Cakes


Dateline: September 2006
Twins' Age: Freshly 5 

Presidential placemats. Pointy birthday hats. Declarative ribbons. Cakes adorned with current fave characters. Is that a tell-tale bit of icing on He-Twin's upper lip? Who's the featuree on She-Twin's cake? 
Can you tell? 

Memories of birthday glee warm my heart this mid-week. 

So much love for them---and Double Daddy---then, and so much now.

Way Back When-esday - Foregrounds and Backgrounds

 Dateline: October 2007
Twins' Age:

Stumbled upon a e-folder long-unopened, a treasure trove of days-gone-by glimpses. 

In the foreground:
Sparkly-eyed siblings, sporting big grins with baby teeth.

In the background:
Darren's poster project prepared for his kindergarten class "Get to Know Me."
Sarah's pink and purple---and rarely used---pocketbook received for our review as "twinfluencers" (before the term was coined). 
Stadler and Waldorf, no doubt cracking wise, from their make-shift balcony, atop the sofa back.

Loving the breadth of memories spurred by this simple candid...and most of all, the kiddos therein. 

Happy Mid-Week, Wonderful Ones.

Way Back When-esday - Represent!

Dateline: November 9, 2016
Twins' Age: 15

Our duo decked-out in their unauthorized high school regalia.
This year, US News and World Report ranked their schools as #2 & #3 in the state of Virginia.
Imperfect to be sure, but Richmond Public Schools for the win! 

Who believes it's nearly been 7 years? 
This spring, new regalia...college diplomas.
So proud of them then. So proud of them now.
