The Tooth Fairy found this last night and he took a picture. What’s intriguing about Ryan (9) is that he’s probably been told many times by now by classmates, or even his brother, that the tooth fairy isn’t real, but he still chooses to believe. Either that, or he is the one having the last […]

There is nothing like school vacation to put these boys in a good mood. I snapped this picture of the bros bonding over the iPad. James was feeling creative in the kitchen and made breakfast for Ryan and himself. He’s got quite a variety from French toast to the pieces of bacon surrounded by mandarin […]
