This is a one of those memories you just have, that somehow never goes away. In sharing this one, I hope someone gets a smile. Autumn and I sure always had a lot to say…It started young and has never gone away.
Our Dad and Mom, so blessed to start out with us twinnies and have four more darling daughters after us. Very brave, our Dad and Mom! If nothing else we got them geared up to deal with anything. Always full of questions, opinions and what if’s…That was Autumn and I.
This memory concerns the Angel Tree Topper that graced our family’s Christmas tree for years. It was quite lovely, as angels go…Our only problem with it? Well, the angel had blond hair! It was fine, until both Autumn and I at almost 6 years old insisted the angel should have dark hair, like us! Asking all kind of questions…Weren’t there dark haired angels? After all all not everyone was blond and what about the red haired angels…Were there any of those around? Did God only make blond haired angels, if so why…It didn’t seem right!
One good thing for our parents sake, little sister was only a bit under 2 years old. Too young to get her on the bandwagon with us twinnies.So, on our non stop questions went … Our Dad was quite helpful, trying to humor us nosy , relentless twinnies.He came up with what he thought would perhaps stop the questions. Yes, he told us…Angels came with all colors of hair, but our Angel happened to arrive with blond hair. She was a special tree topper angel just for our family…She had her own magic. Wow, she was magic…Autumn and I bought into that for a couple weeks. We twinnies were chatting among ourselves, still wishing the angel had dark brown hair, after all that might bring her a bit more magic to our thinking.
We were just so bugged by the whole hair color thing, I know we were some wacky young twinnies, weren’t we? Dad and Mom overheard that little conversation…Well, what do you think we saw by the time Christmas morning dawned? Yes, you may have guessed… Tree Topper Angel had turned into a brunnette! Now that was some heavy duty magic! Autumn and I danced around in delight, clapping our hands and all smiles. All was right in our little world…It was a happy day.
The things parents do for their kids sometimes is touching, giving and the the loving things that make some beautiful memories. Most especially appreciated by this set of twins! 🙂
This one made me remember and laugh 🙂 OMG, we were so funny, a brunette angel! Mom and Dad sure were something, to keep us happy 😉 TF ❤ = Twins Forever
I will never forget this one twinnie, so distraught over wanting a brunette angel we were! 🙂 Dad and Mom were just so loving and wonderful to fulfill our wish, we were very blessed. 🙂 TF <3=Twins Forever

Thanks Lauren! I have so many, many family memories to share and hope everyone doesn’t get sick of them. I agree, cheers to brunette angels! 🙂
What a wonderfully kind gesture by your parents. 🙂
Sounds like you guys had a happy childhood.
We did have a wonderful and very happy childhood. So very blessed to have the best Dad and Mom. 🙂
I loved reading this story. How sweet. The angel was magic after all. 🙂 Thanks for sharing this. Sincerely, Connie Webb
Thanks so much Connie, I am happy you enjoyed it. 🙂 That angel certainly was magic it seems. Take care, Gabby
It’s the redheaded angels that you really need to watch out for.
I do believe there’s a story behind this one! 🙂 Does MDW have red hair by chance?
Loved the story. It reminds me of some of the stories my sisters told. Two are twins and sometimes spoke a language known only to them.
Thanks for stopping by Dan. 🙂 I am so glad you liked the story, too. You have sisters who are twins, then you know what twins are like. It’s amazing the language that only twins can share, it’s true because we had one of our very own. It really is quite the blessing being a twin! 🙂
