Jersey Girl is the January Schnibble of the month.  You can find it here.  Have any of you started it yet??  Well, if you have not…DO!!!  It is an awesome little quilt.  Not bragging, but my version is done.  lol  Oh yes, you read that correctly!  Almost, just need to apply the binding.  I will give you a peek, but I will reveal all the details before the parade on Sherri and Sinta’s blogs.

My post title is Lucky #13 because my girls are officially teenagers!  Happy Birthday to my sweet babies!  Of course, they are sweet young ladies, but to us they will always be our babies.  It has been 13 wonderful years since the moment they came into our lives.  Each and every day has been a blessing.

Seems like yesterday… their first time playing in the leaves.

Our annual Christmas photos.  My favorite night of the year!  Over the years, the girls as well as the animals have learned to pose and sit still.  Oh gosh, there have been some funny photos that never make the Christmas Card!  I laugh as I write this.  Tears shed…Sarge getting up just as the photo is being taken.  Good times.  Good memories!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!  Love you to the moon and back.

    Kids grow up so fast… I hope the day is special for them! I think you saw on IG that I finished my Schnibble yesterday. I considered doing the blue/cream/tan think like you only using Indigo Crossing. I really like yours! It is so appropriate, too for the weather.

    The quilt looks beautiful. Happy 13th birthday to your gorgeous twins. I can't get over how quickly the time flies when you have kids. My eldest was 10 in August but it doesn't feel like ten years ago she was my chubby, cuddly baby.
