Heckle and Jeckle

or maybe I should just call them Goober and Gomer. I was going through some pictures the other day and came across this: This was taken at Christmas 2006. Jacob and Kaleb were being their usual serious, studious selves when they spotted a giant spider. Well, geez, what could they do but jump into each other's arms, screaming like little girls?

Okay, so yeah, they were really just goofing off and doing everything in their power to act like fruitbaskets. The fact that I can't get them to pose nicely for longer than 2 seconds has long been a source of angst for me. Kinda cute though, aren't they? My boys...my very own set of Irish twins (they are exactly 11 months and 9 days apart in age). This will probably be one of my favorite Christmas pictures in the years to come. Oh heck, who am I kidding? It already is!


  1. Good morning Kari...I happen to love that photo!

    I was going through your book list and find we like some of the same authors.

    We're going to the Friends of the Library book fair Saturday. I'm looking for a few "pretty books" for the new secretary, among others. I always love digging through all the books at the fair and blogged about it last year.


  2. Your Irish twins are adorable! (They don't need to know that I said this.)

  3. Ha! Looks like they were having a great time!

  4. Hum,I remember being called that once a long time ago when Irv and I were kids.

    That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

  5. They look like they have fun together Kari! I bet they have alot of girls calling them.

  6. LOL..I love the picture too! If I saw a large spider I would be running far,far away!!!!!

  7. LOL do they know you posted it here for all to see? Fun memory!

  8. Yeah, they look like a couple of Irish setters to me, too...oh wait, you said Irish twins didn't you? Well they are sitting...or maying they're Irish pointers...they're a Christmas flower, a Poinsetter...lol...love the picture they look like babies and it's only been two years!
    love you and the twins lol
