Wow. . . your brother is a hottie! And an all around Renaissance man, and a sweetie pie??? Don't tell my husband that I said that. ;-)

On another note, after seeing a kid picture of you, I see that Cole really favors you! You are an angel as well, my dear and quite the Renaissance girl yourself.

Happy Birthday Ignatius!
