MADISON, Wis. — A set of twins from Madison, Wis., have big plans for Friday: They will be celebrating their 11th birthday on the 11th day of the 11th month of 2011.

Bouncing and squirming on their grandmother's couch, Betsy and Katie Overman are making plans: Maybe they'll go to school and stay for just 11 minutes. Perhaps they'll mark 11 minutes after 11 o'clock with a countdown.

The State Journal reports that an aunt has already given them 11 bags, each containing 11 little presents.

Katie is hoping to be given guinea pigs — but just two. Betsy wants a Kindle. They plan to go shopping at the Mall of America in Minnesota.
