Sabrina and Fiona are such special little girls. They are funny, smart, happy, forgiving, kind, and beautiful. And a million other things. It is so fun having them in our family. We love them so much.
Birthday dinner: Sausage rolls and oven chips with apple squash to drink. (Their favorite meal, also very British. Also in this instance, squash isn't a vegetable, it's a drink mix, although it confuses me still everytime someone says it. "I want some squash!" never fails to surprise me until I realize they are just talking about juice mix. Ha)
Birthday cake: Individual double-decker cakes. (Where we learned that substituting whipped cream for frosting is apparently not acceptable. Lesson learned.)
Birthday activity: Swimming at the pool down the street. The girls had been begging to go for quite some time, and they loved every second of it once they figured out how to use the floaties to help them swim.
Presents: Too many! These girls were spoiled. They got presents from Mom and Dad as well as two packages from their Grandma & Grandpa "Truck" and their Grandma & Grandpa "Whitecar" in America. They loved every single present though and said thank you and even wrote thank you cards for everything they got.
And now a little bit about each girl indivitually, because even though they are twins, they are each very much, their own person with her own likes and dislikes.
Sabrina (pictured below): The oldest. The boss. The girliest. Loves words like graceful and lovely. Favourite colors are pink, purple, and sparkles. Wants to be a princess or a doctor when she grows up. Her favourite part of being a twin is chasing Fiona. Thinks Fiona is good at gymnastics. She is beautiful and smart and I can't even begin to tell you how much I love her.
Fiona (pictured below): The younger. the peacemaker. The daring and adventurous. Loves slaying dragons but is afraid of the dark. Favourite color is purple. Wants to be a princess or a mechanic when she grows up. Her favourite part of being a twin is always having Sabrina to ride bikes with. Thinks Sabrina is good at doing tricks. Think's Dad's kisses are good but Mom's are yuck. Is gentle and funny and beautiful and adores Baby Deaun. I love her more than I can say.
