Some Things are Better in Pairs

For instance –


How about double waterfalls in Washington State

and in Hawaii

 How about cute little kittens

 Maybe two little girls fishing

 Maybe double flower baskets at Banff Springs Hotel

  How about a pair of adorable shih tzus

Even two identical Goofy alarm clocks

Two spires on a church in Montana

 Or in Quebec Canada

Or even two adorable boxer granddogs

Or….. how about the very best pair of all


I know it’s not too clear


and they are coming my way in September.

  26. Congratulations on your twins! I’m sure you’re thrilled beyond belief. We are going to have another grandchild – our eighth – in August. My sweetheart is hoping for twins but I don’t think he will get his wish. No sign of twins here!

  27. Congratulations on your little twin grandbabies to be! What a blessing. I wish the best for their safe delivery! Thanks so much for popping in to see me.
    be a sweetie,

  28. CONGRATULATIONS GREAT GRANDMA!!!! Ellen how WONDERFUL….but I think I need to get my eyes checked because I thought the title of your post said “Some things are better in Paris”!!!! I couldn’t figure what Paris had to do with all this until I hit the bottom picture…then I knew I better go back and read the title again…duh. Wow how exciting for you and your family…your family will be growing by leaps and bounds with the addition of these two sweet little one. Off the subject of babies…I see you’ve been to Canada…east and west. How did you like British Columbia? Did you see anything other than the Island or did you drive the Trans Canada over to Banff? I used to live in the mountains in southern BC for over 30 years. I hope you had a good time. Well…enjoy your day!
    Maura 🙂

  29. Oh my gosh!!!! Congratulations to you and the family. How exciting!
