TEDDY BEAR COOKIES/ Twins

 

We knew it was just a matter of time … for three generations we have been waiting … for twins! In early spring fraternal male twins arrived. Not sure if the theory still exists that twins are born in every other generation. No matter what, my nephew and his lovely wife are surrounded by twins in their ancestry and current generation. She has a maternal aunt and uncle who are twins. His maternal grandmother is a twin and maternal male first cousins. Also, two of his paternal great-great grandmothers had twins; one even had two sets. In the end, it is double the joy and diapers and onesies and bottles, going from two children to four. The twin boys were born healthy and in perfect harmony, one resembles Mom and the other, Dad. No sharing was necessary as siblings each had their own new baby brother to hold when meeting them for the first time. Oh, and lest I forget, the tie score only held up for three months. Current score: Boys-4, Girls-2.

    1. Karen, Twins are fun and I'm lucky in that I see them often. At first I was unsure whether to add sanding sugar to these cookies. I agree that they give a fuzzy, stuffed look. Thanks for commenting.
