Happy Birthday to my little buddies

Aaron and Gregg are my July birthdays. It makes me sad to realize how fast time has gone and how grown up they are getting. From the beginning they have been the best of friends and love one another's company. They do everything together. Here are a few of their "ways" they have about them:
They do their school together everyday
If they have a special treat they do NOT eat it until they are together
If one is alone without the other and receives something special they always make sure they share it
They go jogging together
They lift weights together
Love motorcycles, camping, shooting, and anything outdoors
They pray at the same time and end their prayers at the same time
When it's their day for the kitchen they count the dishes and divide in half exactly so they are equal in loading the dishwasher (go figure)
For their birthday they got an xbox to share between them and NEVER do they argue over who's turn it is or how long each is taking.
I think I can count on one hand how many times in their whole life I have heard them quarrel. Truly they are the best of friends. They even say when they get married they want to live next door to each other!! I love these guys!
My thoughts on my boys are:
They are ever so polite. They open doors for women, (including their sisters and mom)
They give up their seats to women and girls.
They carry heavy items for their mom and sisters, and other girls.
Their sister Christie likes to go jogging and no matter what they are doing when she goes they jump on their bikes and go with her so she doesn't go alone.
They've never laid a hand on their sisters and treat them with kindness.
They are very protective of their sisters and their mom.
They both have great faith in the Lord.
Both love their daddy and the three are always together when possible. They show respect and honor to their parents and the best thing of all is that never do they go to bed at night without giving a hug and a kiss to their mom and dad. Did I say I love these guys! Happy Birthday Aaron and Gregg.
