Photo challenge

I have been challenged by Fiona over on Magick Diva to take your 6th folder on your computer and choose the 6th photograh and tell us a bit about it. And I can tell you, I was a bit scared - I have some weird photos on here I can tell you ;). Anyway phew! it was an ok one. This picture is of Holly and Ivy our twins, Holly is the light ginger one and Ivy is jet black. You can just about see their mammy in the background. They are both very funny to watch jumping around the place and just next to them is Baby Doughnut. He's getting very big and strong and full of mischief! I have 6 other people to challenge ....... (I'll sort that out in the morning)
