It was a '12' kind of day for Irondequoit twins Emma and Nathan Halloran | News
We've been waiting for this moment ever since we could talk," said Emma Halloran excitedly.
That "moment," in the form of a day, happened Wednesday.
Emma and her twin brother, Nathan, were born Dec. 12, 2000. That's right, the twins turned 12 today, on 12-12-12.
Dad Tom Halloran said he and his wife Adriana figured out pretty quickly after the twins were born that they'd have a rare "quadruple 12" birthday in 2012.
"It (being 12 on 12-12-12) is pretty cool," Emma said, and Nathan agreed.
Their mom presented each of the twins with a sweatshirt emblazoned with their last name and the No. 12 before they headed to class today.
The twins are in sixth-grade at West Irondequoit's Iroquois Middle School.
Principal Chuck Miller even got in on the celebration. He not only made an announcement — at exactly 12:12, of course — wishing the twins a Happy Birthday today, but also helped their parents pull off a surprise this afternoon by sternly calling them down to his office.
Tom and Adriana Halloran were hiding in the office with 12 pink roses for Emma and 12 balloons for Nathan.
The celebration would continue this evening with a birthday party and both chocolate and vanilla cake, since Nathan prefers chocolate and Emma, vanilla.
The coolest party of the day, however?
"Sharing it," the twins agreed.
