Happy Birthday Lance

Me and Lance about 23 years ago.

Well as much as I was hoping I was going to have a new brother or sister born on Halloween, it didn't happen.  But I did get my wish on a new brother.  When Lance was born, I looked so forward to sharing all of life's little adventures.  As I've said in some old entries, I prayed for a little brother from the time I found out my mom was having a baby.  He came into this world and was so loved by us all.  I think we all loved having his attention.  I wanted him by my side, I wanted to show him things.  I still remember his first smiles.  He always had a light in his eyes burning.  Always with love.  I can't remember anything other than that, it shines naturally in him.  Autumn, Eli, and Ethan are the same way.  There are many treasured memories I hold dear and so much laughter.  Hope this is a wonderful birthday for you Bro.  Seems the world we live in is so busy.   Seems time is just going by quicker and quicker, even though you still seem really young to me.  Man twenty six.  Your the best bro anyone could have.  I've really enjoyed you having  journal too, I love to hear what's going on in your world and you.  Just know I'm grateful and appreciate you and most of all want you to know how much I love you!  We all do.  Happy Birthday!  Man we had a lot of hair in that first picture!

Aw! Happy Birthday to your bro! It's so awesome that you two have a great relationship. I think my brother secretly wished I was a boy. Too bad I wasn't and I was born before him. Hehe

Okay, obviously the dude in the lower pic on the right is your brother? He's also the same guy in the pic in the top entry... But I'm really confused about all these faces:(
Help me out here Derek?
Beautiful pictures! It's wonderful when brothers are close.
