Abby and Brittany

I first saw Abby and Brittany in the grocery store in Waconia when I lived there.  I couldn't believe my eyes as they walked down the isle toward me.  They are conjoined twins. They smiled and said hi as I stared at them wide eyed.
Several years later they babysat my grandkids for 2 summers. I got to meet them and am amazed at what these girls can do.  It was fun to watch them work together and use the computer.  Many times they would give the same answer at the same time to a question.

They are staring in a reality show starting tonight on TLC at either 8 or 9 pm.  If you want to be amazed at what these conjoined twins can do, watch the show.  Let me know what you think.  You can read a little about them and see a video  here.  http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/08/11/conjoined-twins-abby-and-brittany-hensel_n_1760552.html

I have watched specials about them in the past and they have such a great attitude. How grand that you and your family know them. I'll do my best to watch the special! Thx.

Amazing. I'm beyond speechless. And we think that we have to have a stiff upper lip sometimes. Just wow.

I am currently watching their show on TLC. What poise and determination they have. They and their friends remind me very much of my college days - lots of giggles and friendships made to last a lifetime. Thx for telling us about the show.
