The Twins


Here is a picture of my mom and Aunt Karin when they were 4 years old. My Gramma made the dresses they are wearing and my mom said that sometimes my Gramma would make a matching dress for herself and my Auntie Annie so all 4 of them would have the same dress.
One time when I was visiting my Aunt Karin I noticed she had the tiniest little ring on a chain around her neck. I asked her what it was and she said that my Gramma had put it on her finger after she and my mom were born so that she would be able to tell them apart. I have noticed that in a lot of pictures of my mom and aunt, when they were little, they had different color barrets in there hair whenever they wore a matching outfit. My mom sent this picture to everyone in the family and asked if they could figure out who was who. My Aunt Karin's husband (my Uncle Dave) wrote back and said, "I can't tell which is which, but I know I got the cute one." My mom is on the left. :)

I'll have to ask Gramma about those dresses. They could have been storebought. She made our dresses the majority of the time. I can remember pink gingham dresses that we all had alike. (She loved rick/rack.)

Annie, if your mom was a twin, and I'm a twin....well, twins run in both families. You may have more babies than you ever planned on having! Now, that should be fun....

What Bonita said was what I was thinking - it might get a bit crowded around your house. :) ec

Oh how cute! Such a cute idea with the ring. Twins run in my family on both sides; my grandmother was a twin but none are identical. Can not tell them apart!!
