Lights on.... 

My life is lit up by two very special  boys.  One is my baby brother Dane-he is going to be 12 this year.  The other little guy is Owen, my son, he will be 2 this year.  I made this scrapbook layout "You Are My Sunshine" for the two of them.

They are such special boys and they love each other so much.  Dane is a wonderful and fun uncle to Owen!  Owen just lights up every time he is around.  When we go to Grandma's house, Owen runs down the hall to Dane's bedroom looking for him.  I am glad they aren't so far apart in age  that they won't ever be close.  I can't wait to see how their relationship continues to grow!

Here is the whole blog line up in case you get lost!
