Happy happy happy birthday to a wonderful loveable little brother.
He's twelve today?!?! That's insane, where did the last few years go?
So yeah, this is one of those B-day posts that I always mean to do but never get them up in time. And... mine are always lame. -_- But since it is my brother.....I'm gonna try again.
Since he might not see this post anytime soon, I don't have to worry about him trying to strangle me for posting a few of these pictures. ;)
*Warning to my Parents and Grandparents*
I may or may not make you cry in this post, terribly sorry if I do. You have been warned.
So as far as brothers go, they are a pretty common thing to have, but I think I might have gotten the best one. Here's a few reasons why...
Veritas Press Warrior!
I mean, come on. That's terrifyingly beautiful.
He looks like Captain America. I mean seriously,
He keeps up with my doll craziness, even helps me out with a lot of my photo-stories.
Not to mention, you put up with us sisters. You might get a lot of sympathy about being the only boy, but honestly, they can't touch on it. But you know what, you're awesome. And if we're ever too mean or hard on you, just let me know, I'll sort it out. ;)
Thanks for dancing with us--even if you didn't or don't want to. You're as good as Mr Tilney (just keep working on that smirk.)
You were a very squirmy baby, just so you know.
Because you're cute, and you always have been.
And because you make a silly but awesome cousin to those crazy cute cousins of ours'.
They'll do anything you do, watch whatever you watch.
Because you're awesome and they love you, just like the rest of us do.
And I may not understand half of what you say when you talk about your video games, but I'm trying to learn. Honest. :D
And also, keep building. Because when you build, you open a small portal to your mind for the rest of us to see into, and it's wonderful. And besides. what's the point of being an amazing ISTP, if you don't build?
(Sorry, Leo wanted in this post somewhere. ;P )
Even though it might be challenging, or discouraging, you're still going to try.
But that's another good thing about you, even though you might think of giving up, you'll come back and give it another try when no one's looking. Destroying a few of the sets I rebuilt for you behind my back for example... *clears throat loudly.*
And sometimes when you build, you win. And when you win, that usually means more Legos. Which is always a good thing, right?
^Lego store in Chicago earlier this year.
Have I mentioned the dogs? I think I should mention the dogs.
The talking dogs, but also real, breathing dogs love you too.
We have, what 14 talking dogs now? If you don't know what I'm talking about...
This ^^ is what I'm talking about. That fluffy blond dog.
So Happy Birthday twelve year old!
You're awesome, and we all know it.
Fight hard and don't give up when the road looks tough ahead. because, you'll find a way. We are Hufflepuffs after all, we always find a way.
So whether you're reading this in the morning, or in ten years. I hope you know that I love you very much. Even if you weren't the little sister that I wanted when you were born. I am very thankful God has given me such a gift as having you as my little brother. And now that Mum is probably crying-- just two more things....
In Taytay's 'Best Day,' you know where she says, "I've got smiles from my little brother, inside and out he's better than I am."
Well...it's true for me too. You are better, that may because you're younger than me, or something else. But it's true.
And the other thing--I hope you like your present, you little stinker. How about, next year no guessing? You are too good at it! ;P
Keep up everything you do silly Bren.
Much love, and hugs, lots and lots of hugs.
