Oh my, STUNNING photos! Happy Birthday to the Hobbit!
My oldest turning thirteen has been the hardest one for me so far. It's been a few months now, and I think I am just starting to cope.

ya' know, he's a bit tall to be a hobbit now =) time to come up with a new moniker?

kat said...

thank you, everyone!

rube~ nope. he will always be thehobbit to me. besides, the name was given due to the amount of food he consumed, not to him being teeny :)
