Buon Compleanno al Gemelli

Gemelli is a type of pasta and is also the Italian word for "twins."

to the whole Pasta Family and most especially to Sammy and Chris, the tiny Texan twins born June 12, 2008. (both pictures are of Sammy but hey - they are twins; Chris looks just like his brother).

While it appears Sammy is giving a nurse the malocchio, sources at the scene say he was just winking. We'll see. (click the pictures for a larger version).

For those who like numbers they are both 3 lbs 12 ounces and 16 inches long. Both are Texans by the odd coincidence that mom and dad were with one of the twins' older sisters in Texas having surgery at the time they decided to greet this new world. Having Texans for children was not the original plan for Mama and Papa Pasta but they'll adjust and begin the re-education process in their much larger home state soon enough.

For praying types, you might include the twins in those prayers since they are so small but reports are that they're going to be a-okay after a little TLC in the NICU for the next 4 to 6 weeks.

To the entire Pasta family:

Congratulations and come home soon!
You have an adoring public who wish to shower you with gifts and love (but not in a creepy way).
