Counting Backwards !!

See now I'm 49 today.  Birthdays are the best!  and I share mine with my twin brother Jim!!!  I can say Two is better than one!!!  So here's where you gush !!  My mom special lady that she is had a total of 6 kids and believe it or not 2 sets of twins in that sum!!! CutekidsJenandjimkidLastpage
  My twin sisters are on the 11th of January so that's four birthdays in 5 days right after Christmas!! Also remember this is all without the advantages of fertility so it was like winning the lottery…I think anyway!!!  So there you go an interesting fact about Jennifer Byrne Paganelli that you could probably have lived without!!  Give a shout out to mom cause she would love all the attention!

    Happy Birthday! You’re just a year older than me and I’m hoping when the big 50 hits that my 50’s will be just as amazing as my 40’s

    Happy Birthday to you and your brother. The photos are great and I like your photo shop technique that you did on them.

    Oh, Jennifer, Happy Birthday! I should have remembered this date from last year. Here’s a note to Mom: I know you’re proud because you gave birth to a very beautiful daughter (inside and out)!
    Many Happy Returns!

    Yay, Happy Birthday, Jennifer! I just love birthdays! It’s your one day to feel more special than ever. I can’t believe you have TWO sets of twins in your sibling family! Have a wonderful wonderful day!

    As a mom of twins, I say that any woman who raised two sets of multiples in the midst of six deserves sainthood!
    Happy Birthday!!!!
    Enjoy this last year of forty-something.

    WOW, WOW, WOW, YOUR Mom should be “Sainted.” I am glad you are 49, I am too! I don’t feel bad, I worked really hard to get to be this old..except the wrinkles are starting to bother me! I AGREE 100% about the PINK. I LOVE PINK! Check out my blog and the post, All things Red and Pink! I hope it makes you smile!
    Happy Birthday!

    How sweet. I love childhood photos. I only wish my own mother took some of me. Oh well.
    Happy birthday to you AND your twin Jim.
    I honestly think twins are fascinating. I wish I could have had them but I guess it wasn’t in the genes.

  32. Happy (belated) Birthday Jennifer, to you and your brother! That is amazing that your mother had two sets of twins and with birthdays only 5 days apart!! Wow! And, I know firsthand how great it is to come from a large family. 🙂 I hope your day was special.
    ~ Jennifer

  38. Nanette says:

    Jennifer these pics are so darling. Happy Birthday. How fun. Your mom is a very blessed woman to have lived through 2 sets of twins! I had 1 set and it was difficulty enough. Not to say YOU and your brother were difficult but the process is somewhat difficult. I’d never change a thing though. Of course.

  39. Patrice says:

    Happy Birthday Jennifer! — a few days late. You are one amazing woman and it’s no wonder that you came from an amazing woman!
    I met you in Portland at market and you spent so much time with my sister and I encouraging and inspiring us to use our creative talents. You shared so much and we are so grateful, I’m sorry I haven’t written sooner to thank you. Really, thank you so much! –I’ll send you the photo we took sometime to jog your memory 🙂 . You’re the best! XO Lisa

  45. I loved these pictures so much. Thank you for sharing and HAPPY Birthday! I grew up with twin brothers. So I can relate with the run anc chaos! 🙂 Have a blessed week.

  46. Kim says:

    Happy Happy belated birthday! I never tire looking at that photo of you and your brother where you wrote in “BOSS” “Not the boss of me”

  47. Tanya Whelan says:

    Too cool to have all that twinning going on in your family and HUGE Happy Birthday to you and your brother!!!!
    I knew your mom was amazing but the fact that she coped with all those babies coming at the same time, well, my proverbial hat is off to her!!!

  48. Carolyn says:

    Wow! What a fun family situation. Best wishes and happy belated special day to you!

  49. Paula says:

    I’m late, I’m late for a very important date! Happy Belated birthday to you!!
    My dog is a regular vacuum. Tim thinks something is wrong with him..not enough fiber in his diet? So I just had to show him your dog and the glitter in his poop story.
    Will I see you in Pittsburgh?

  50. so good to hear from you..big fan!!! Yes I’ll be there look forward to seeing you. xoxo Jennifer

  51. Wow! Two sets of twins! And in JANUARY! Bless your moms heart! My mom had twins in the 50’s and didn’t know she was carrying twins! Not until delivery! She had a two yr old at home and then got two more for the price of one (as she used to say!) Happy Belated Birthday!

  52. Christine says:
