Happy Birthday Sky!

Happy 23rd Birthday Skyler!
Disclaimer: As it is quite obvious I had some ISSUES with the photos and my scanner. UGH! Sorry, I will try and fix it as soon as's brand new. But I just HAD to post it ON his birthday! Or you can just pretend they are supposed to look that way!!!

23 photos and 23 reasons why I'm glad you're my son!
