Happy Birthday, Elijah!
My youngest brother turns 18 today! Here are 18 adjectives that describe him:
- THE BEST (don’t tell Sam 😉 )
So, it is that time of the year again…WHEN MY SISTER TURNS A YEAR OLDER!!!!!!!!!!
To be honest, though, this is a day that should be celebrated every day and not just on her birthday because my sister is AMAZING and I feel grateful every day for her.
But today I am EXTRA-grateful for my awesome, funny, fabulous, smart, hard-working, creative, inspiring little sister.
Happy Birthday to me!
I spent a wonderful day at the museum with (some) of family, including my adorable nephew!
Korean for dinner and my favorite movies to finish up!
Super grateful for all the birthday love and wishes!
Once upon a time, I tried sending my brother to his room. He refused. I probably yelled. It was in the early days when I was 8 or so and Mom first let us stay home alone for short periods of time.
I remember my Dad taking me aside afterwards and saying quite firmly, “Amy, as the oldest you are in charge. But Sam is your deputy. You don’t get to boss him around. You work with him.”
I honestly don’t think Sam and I have had a fight since.
Happy Birthday to the best deputy a sister could ask for! I hope you have another incredible year. (And also, thanks for giving me the best nephew on the planet. More pictures of him always welcome. 😉 )
9 (Out of a Million) Reasons I’m Thankful For My Mom: (in no particular order)
- She loves me regardless.
- She supports all my crazy adventures.
- She buys me food.
- She listens when I ramble.
- She almost always knows the answer – even if the answer means letting me sort it out on my own.
- She reads my blog and occasionally reminds me to share it with the rest of the world.
- She tells me what she’s thinking about.
- She rocks at her job!
- She rocks at being a Mom.
(I know she will read this, shake her head, and deny she rocks at her job, but really does. And she better not deny she rocks at being a Mom because she has 5 successful children that say otherwise.)
He’s turning 17 and eager to build his own computer! Happy Birthday to my youngest brother!
(I really need to take more updated photos with my siblings)
I know a girl/Whose full of grace/she’s got red hair/and a happy face
Her name is Anna/she loves bananas/someday we know/she’ll be in a drama!
She’s our lima bean/but as you can see/she is Anna Keen! Dunt dunt duh!
Y’all, I officially have the coolest 21-year-old sister on the planet. I can’t imagine life without her.
Anna, I hope you have a spectacular day and a wonderful year. Let’s drink responsibility when I get home!
