Meet the “Twins”

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?

    They remind me of my brother Richard and I. But we were a year apart. Ben’s hair is even the same blond color as Richard. Think they might be cousins to us on the England side of Connie’s family.

    They are adorable. Grandkids are the best. I love my two to pieces,but they just live too far away.

    What a great photo–they do look like twins. Thanks for sharing.
    Here in SW Minnesota, we are keeping an eye on the weather. I hope the prediction of ten inches is wrong.

    I don’t know how you do it. We had just 2 grand dogs for 3 days plus our Ziva. Max is cross with Sadie and Ziva so he has to be by himself . The girls get along fine. They share food and the couch.
    If they did not go home,already, I hope the twins are planing on staying,for a few days, because it is raining here now and only going to get worse about an hour and a half from you. I am planning a couple of days of sewing. Got plenty of food and no plans to travel.
    I love all your plants. Mine are in the greenhouse. I would very much like them in the screen porch but it is not warm.

    Claire looks like she should pose for “vintage” cards! Christmas cards…the angel!
    He does look like he has a plan brewing behind those eyes!
