My new twin Great grandsons - Sam & Max

This is Victoria in Uniform.  She is a Lance Corporal in the Marine Corps. She is the mother of my new
great grandsons.

This is my Grandson Dustin who is a Corporal in the Marine Corps.  He is the father of my new great grandsons and has been in Iraq.  So Victoria went through her whole pregnancy by herself.  The twins decided to come on August 25, 2009.  They weren't due till Oct. 14, 2009.  So they were premies and very tiny.  Samuel Scott weighed in at 4 lbs 1.6 oz. and 16 " long and Max Michael weighed in at 3 lbs. 5 oz. and 16" long.  They were born in San Diego Marine Hospital by C section.  They were then moved to San Diego Children's hospital as they were better equiped to take care of them.  They've been home about a week now and are doing great.  Dustin got to take the next plane home and arrived just a few days after the birth. 

Above are the crosses that my church, 1st United Methodist, in Hutchinson, KS. gave to the boys.  I brought the two red roses home and stuck them in the microwave and dried them and put them in a box to send to the kids in California.  The crosses are to hang in their room so they start life recognizing the image. The next picture is of the inside of the certificates that came with the crosses. 

Dustin's little family. 

We now have 4 sets of twins in our family and 2 of them are my grandsons. The 3rd set belong to my brother's oldest daughter and the 4th to my Sister's son.  The last 3 sets came into our life in less than a year.  One set in Omaha, Ne., one in Kearney, Ne. and the other in San Diego, CA. so I guess the water isn't safe anywhere. I thought it was a miracle when we got twin grandsons 19 years ago and now their big brother has given us another set.  We are all so blessed with these little wonders & our other grandkids also.  Donny has 6, Andrea's Ben, William and new twins Gavin and Dawson, & Katie's Hannah and Noah.  Gay has 3, Mike's Olivia & twin girls Josslyn and Leah & her new step grandson, Ben.  I have Dustin, (new wife Victoria), Casey & Cody & new greats Sam & Max and from Rod's second wife Becky, I have stepgrandkids, Dawn & son Bryton, Amber & husband Joey & her daughter Reannah and his sons, Christopher & Tyler, and Kyle.  So from one son I have quite a crew.  Love them all.
