Sweet Little Men!
There are two things in life for which we are never truly prepared: Twins.

Today you are SIX!
You have to know, sweet boys, every year on your birthday, I comically breathe an inward sign of relief that we've somehow kept you alive for another year.
You daily test the limits of your safety
by fearlessly climbing trees,
energetically running down the cracked, uneven sidewalks,
furiously riding your scooters and bailing into the grass to stop,
rapidly riding your bikes down the sloped driveway toward the street--turning only at the last second,
intensely (yet somehow lovingly) beating each other with anything remotely shaped like a sword,
sprightly hanging from the swing set with jump ropes turned lassos,
nimbly jumping and diving at every possible opportunity.
You both, as they say, are ALL BOY.
And I love it!
McClain, you are absolutely as sweet as they come. You love to plant surprise kisses on my cheek and still unashamedly hold on to my hand anytime we're out and about. You have a tender heart and care deeply for your whole family. We pray you will continue to grow in confidence and be unafraid of what others think of you. Your approval is found in Christ alone. We're so thankful you asked Jesus to be your Savior just last week and claimed His forgiveness for your sins. God has good plans for your life, McClain. We are humbled God has chosen us to be your parents. We love you!
Carson, you are so energetic and completely full of wittiness. We are always guaranteed a good laugh when you're around. You are a natural protector and always stand your ground. You have a fierce love for your family and show it well with tight, quick hugs. We pray you will guard yourself from pride in your own strength and abilities and place your confidence totally in Christ. You already have an understanding of salvation and those wheels are continuously turning as you soak up God's Word. God has good plans for you, Carson! We are humbled that God chose us to be your parents, too! We love you!
