Jacob and Clive

This is Jacob (8) and Clive (7) and Ox (5). Snow is snow is snow to kids. A dusting is just as exciting as a foot to them. Jacob and Clive have a pretty good relationship as brothers. They are 17mths, 1/4 inch, and 1/2 lb apart. Ox has a good 50 pounds on them.

Jacob is my social butterfly. He's a romantic at heart. Matt and I think he'll be the first to marry straight out of highschool and end up living upstairs with his bride since neither one of them will be able to afford an apartment. In fact, we think we'll have to kick him out of the house at some point. In the land of Winnie the Pooh, Jacob is Christopher Robin. For Jacob, where 2 or more are gathered, then it's a Party. His aspirations are to grow up and work at Blockbuster. We're so proud.

Clive, on the other hand, would have no friends if it weren't for his big brother, Jacob. Clive is Eeyore. He's very literal and has a dry sense of humor that can make me pee my pants, he's so funny. We think he will grow up to draw pictures for mechanical engineering books. He's all about Bionicles and Legos. He might never get married. People kinda wear him out. I will say, however, that he's come a long way from his early years. I think he can at least tolerate people now, although he thinks most of them are useless. He's a very sweet, tender-hearted boy, which would surprise most people.....especially since he can be a little blunt at times. ie. "Choir stinks."
