Dear Jake and Trent,
Your Daddy and I rounded the corner into our Den the other night (a night when we let you stay up late and play when you should have been asleep) and this is what we saw. How it warmed our hearts to see you two sitting next to each other (Trent in full baseball attire, of course) watching a game together. God has given you a gift in each other. Our prayer is that you will grow up knowing that you always have someone there who is on your side, backing you up, someone to go fishing with, to go to the game with, to confide in and to cheer on. Oh, we know you're gonna fight, you already do...and we know you are as different as night and day...but you are brothers. You share the same name, love the same Lord and we pray that God will bond your hearts together-differences and all- and do mighty things in His name and for His glory through you both.
We love you and it is so much fun being your Mommy and Daddy!

What a sweet picture. It warms my heart to know that they have each other. And don't won't be long until Ellie tattles on EVERYTHING they do and tells you "WHO DID IT" how did I know that????? ~mom
