"Irish Twins" - "Irish triplets" - "Irish Quadruplets"

Happy Birthday Pat! For one month every year my sister Pat & I are the same age. We are what's know as "Irish Twins". We grew up being called this, in fact as you might guess by our age (53) it was a very common thing. What I didn't know was that we are actually considered "Irish Triplets" because my younger brother Steve, Pat & I were all born within 2 years - can you imagine!
EASTER 1963 Steve, Pat, Margaret
BELOW Summer 1963 Pat, Steve, Margaret & Tom
I feel bad leaving my older brother Tom out, he is 18 months older than me which eliminates him but 4 kids in 4 years we're making him an honorary "Irish Quadruplet"! They say that the "Irish Twins" "Triplets" etc tend to be very close because of the closeness in age and I think it is very true. They are 3 of my favorite people. We have 2 more sisters but they are much younger and spaced further apart.

I "HEART" what Joe made me for Valentines Day. It's made from 1/2" thick steel plate & weighs a ton. The 24 is our house # and also our anniversay day. I got him a big ice cream cake which made him happier than anything I could possibly make him!

I heard a reporter on the news yesterday say she was "Snow Over it" and I couldn't agree more. Virginia on the other hand loves it... until it got too deep for her to move!
