I finally found this picture of the twins I had been looking for. The twins are of course the two sons of our daughter Monika. And I found another lovely picture of the boys. At least I think it is lovely! I believe it is also taken in 1981

I like to publish some photos too as well as a little bit of a diary from the present time. Occasionally I publish a story with a bit of fiction in it.

Truly lovely pics – what beautiful cherubic faces, but with a mischievous little twinkle. Gorgeous!
I am glad I found these photos, Cat. I just love to look at them. Thanks for your lovely comment. 🙂
Beautiful pictures Auntyuta, and to think they were taken all those years ago, you really are proud, I can tell and rightly so.
Thank you, Ian, for this comment. Looking at the pictures brings back good memories. The twins were born some six months after our daughter Caroline. It was such fun to see the three of them together. The twins and ‘Aunty’ Caroline saw each other quite often when they were little. When we went on an excursion with Caroline we often would take the twins along too which was good company for Caroline. The twins were always very good kids. Their parents had every reason to be proud of them too. Now Ryan is the proud father of one year old Lucas. Troy hasn’t settled down yet. He’s still looking for the right woman. I think he has certain expectations what she should be like.
Peter and I are very lucky to have a large extended family here in Australia. Our son has three lovely kids and two sweet granddaughters. Besides the twins daughter Monika has three lovely girls who have grown up a lot but still live at home. Monika’s new partner is a widower with a daughter close to the age of Monika’s girls. They all live together in a five bedroom house!
Our son has three lovely kids and two sweet granddaughters. There was a lot of turbulence with the marriages of Monika and son Martin, as well as different partners over the years. Still they are all happy now and the grandchildren and great-grandchildren are all o.k. We can only be thankful for this. 🙂
Oh my goodness! They used to be more identical than they are now 🙂 Glad you finally found it Aunty Uta!
You are right, Munira, it was sometimes difficult to tell them apart. Yes, I was very happy when I did find the pictures for I had been looking for them everywhere for quite a while. 🙂 Cheers, Auntyuta.

Liebe Gislinde, Sonne haben wir z.Z. ‘ne ganze Menge, aber es ist trotzdem sehr kalt, vor allem wenn dann auch noch so’n schrecklich kalter Wind aufkommt. Ja, geniess die Hitze denn nicht mehr lange, dann wird es bei euch wieder kalt! Ihr habt 16 Jahre alte ‘Märchen’ Zwillinge? Ja. das ist doch toll! Unsere Zwillinge sind ja jetzt schon 34 Jahre alt, sehen aber immer noch recht gut aus. 🙂
Recht liebe Grüsse,, Uta.
Wonderful photos! Thanks for sharing!
Thank you, Robert
I sincerely agree that they are lovely! I love twins!!
Thank you, Yor.
They would be the same age as my eldest son. You are so lucky to have such beautifuk greand-children.
Yes, Elizabeth, we are very lucky. We have eight grand-children and thre great-grandchildren and they are all special to us! 🙂
Lovely pictures. Grandparents are so lucky. They often enjoy children even more and at least have more time.
I don’t know about having more time, Gerard. Maybe it is because we are already GREAT grandparents! We always seem to be running out of time! Yes, we are very lucky to have GREAT grandchildren. 🙂
How time flies my friend. Beautiful pictures.
I agree, I always liked these particular pictures of the twins a real lot. 🙂
Could they be any cuter?
Oh, Karen, as a proud grandma I say these pictures are just great! 🙂
Oh wow :). It just blows me a way – STILL – that that moment then on the bed in their bed robes was as real as is this moment now…. but gone. Time is bizarre.
Great photos, Aunty Uta.
Thirty-two years — This is really quite a long time ago. I, the grandma, was 46 at the time. The last 32 years went very quickly for me.
Thanks for commenting, Noeleen. 🙂

I love to look at these pictures of my twin-grandsons. 🙂
Their heritage is half German and half Ukrainien! 🙂
