    Happy Birthday Boy’s!

    What a great post. Love that pic also!

  3. You really did have them close together. I keep forgetting that.

  4. Jen, they sound like great kids, and it’s good that they have so many varied interests. I swear my nieces and nephews seem to spend all their time playing Play Station.

  5. That proves that you can have two kids with totally different personalities but that’s okay, you love them for their uniqueness.

  6. Happy Birthdays to your boys! And congrats to you for raising them up! I’m pretty sure it hasn’t all been easy. Hugs!

  7. What an interesting balance! They sound like great kids, and a handful all at once *grin*

    Happy Birthday to both of them 🙂

    Happy T13,

    13 Wishes

  8. What a delightful pair to know a bit about. They sound like a real blessing. Thanks for sharing and Happy TT!
