This is Ben and Claire Tesene, Connie’s grandkids who live in Des Moines. I don’t get to see them much so I always appreciate a picture or two or three. This was taken on Thanksgiving Day at Grandma Connie’s house. Aren’t they just the cutest? I put “twins” in quotes because even though they certainly look like they could be twins, they are actually ages 3 and 5. Doesn’t Claire look absolutely angelic as she gazes upwards with her hands in her lap? And doesn’t Ben have a sly grin?
