Summer 1998
Rebekah and Madison have been buddies from the day he was born! They are 2 years and 2 days apart in age.

Winter 1999
From early on they stuck close and worked together in schemes of mischief.

Summer 2002
After a couple of years the only thing that separated Rebekah and Madison was age, because by the time he was 3 they were about the same size. So, from there on everyone thought that Rebekah and Madison were twins!

They have shared lots of birthday memories....

Cakes and Candles!!!

February 11th was Rebekah's birthday
February 13th
was Madison's birthday!!!

(Bekah's birthday this year 2011)

These 2 pick and joke like an old married couple, I'm so happy they are still so close. What a neat bond they share. Funny thing is now people don't think they are twins, often they think Madison is older than Rebekah. It could be because Rebekah is only 4 foot 10inches tall and can still wear kids shoes.....then there is Madison! He is 5 foot 8 inches tall and wears a size 12 shoe! Now he can be her protector :) What a blessing they are to our family!

What sweet and precious pictures. Happy birthday to the "twins" They remind me of Katie and Josiah when they were little. People would ask if they were twins because they were almost the same size. Now he is about to pass her up and is way past her in the shoe size. Love that picture with the cake. Looking forward to seeing you all soon.

That is so neat!!!! Her future spouse may have more than her daddy to contend with when he comes a courting ;)

What a very sweep post, Laura. Love seeing the friendship and love between siblings. Our little guy, Joshua is almost three and about 36 lbs. He's catching up to Ruby, who's nine, but is tiny!

Thank you for a very sweet start to my day!

How wonderful to have children who are so close to each other. We have a set like that as well. It is so interesting to see how they respond and interact with each other in such a togetherness. We hope that you have a blessed year as you share those close bonds. The Penners
