Awww that is so sweet! I loved your photos of your boys!!! I can't imagine mine being all grown up as I'm caught up still with sleepless nights, and a noisy crazy house where I have to have eyes in the back of my head. I'm sure they'll grow big quick enough and I'll wonder where the time went.....what a great pumpkin!! It looks like your son is artistic too!!!
Happy birthday Derek!!!
