Arcanum News for the week of Feb. 1, 2022
By Vickie Rhodehamel
Twins are double the snuggles, double the cuddles, double the kisses, and double the love. A second set of twins to local grandparents Scott and Kim Morrison are one of the greatest blessings! Twins Lakynn Rose and Landen Joseph were born to Lindsey (Morrison) and Anthony Terrace of Englewood, Ohio on Nov. 16, 2021. Proud paternal grandparents are Ron and Verlaine Terrace and big brother, Aiden. Great-grandparents are Maxine Kingrey and John Morrison. Lakynn and Landen weighed 6 pounds 8 ounces and 6 pounds 20 ounces at birth. They also have very proud cousins Karmen and Krew Morrison (twins) and Tarrin Morrison, children of Aunt Kayla and Uncle Tyler Morrison. What a delight to have double the “trouble” and double the blessing! Congratulations to the Morrison and Terrace family!
