Do twins have different personalities?

"Now, the world don't move to the beat of just one drum,
What might be right for you, may not be right for some." - Different Strokes Theme

Recently, we went to a friends house for a birthday party.  One of the attractions was that they had someone there who was giving henna tattoos to those that wanted one. (Henna is a traditional middle-eastern temporary body-art.) It is often done to the fingers and hands and is mostly worn by women.  Yvonne got a floral design on her hand.  Abigail got to choose what she wanted.  I think it came down to a floral design or a butterfly.... this is what she ended up asking for:

Next, it was Saylor's turn to decide what she wanted.  I think her first response was... a dragon!  After some contemplation, she decided that instead of a dragon, she wanted a BIG BAD WOLF.  I'm guessing that henna artists don't do a lot of those, but here it is:

They are starting to wear off now, but for the last few days, the girl's hands have become more like pets.  We were in the swimming pool and "my wolf" or "my butterfly" were "swimming too".  Or, some food has to be shared with them at mealtimes.  Anyway, sometimes people ask us if our twins have different personalities this young.  You tell me.


  1. You only have to spend a couple minutes with those girls to know that they are extremely different- and the best of friends because of it!
    We hope to see you this summer, hopefully in a week or so? haha.

  2. We loved reading your blog and we are super excited we are going to see you tomorrow. Our prayers were answered. What a blessing it will be to be in the temple all together as a family. We love you for making the sacrifice to come. Our summer will be glorious!! Thank you. We love you like crazy.

  3. I'll just say I'm not surprised! I love every bit of those girls...the parts that are the same and the parts that are different. Good luck on your trip, I can only imagine...

  4. I love this! I'm so glad I found this so I can keep up with you guys now that you are literally on the other side of the world!
