A Birthday Blog for my little brother

Happy Birthday, you! I can't believe you're 36. It's making me feel all warm and fuzzy and sentimental. I'm getting a little tear in my eye just thinking about it.

It's absolutely amazing how you keep getting older while I just stay my same youthful self. Don't feel bad, though. At least you lost the cheeks. I still have mine.

I hope you have a wonderful birthday full of all the things you love like family, friends, love, laughter and good food. And beer. Lots of beer.

I just know this birthday is going to be even better than the time you got the Smurf shirt

AND the Empire Strikes Back play set!

And just know that the birthday gods must really be smiling upon you....because as hard as I tried....I just couldn't find the photo of you sporting a mullet in your leopard print shirt. You were bad to the bone!

I love you and miss you and can't wait to see you all in December!

With much love,
your big sis Kristabel

P.S. Give you-know-who and you-know-who a big kiss for me.
P.P.S. You look like a monkey.
P.P.P.S. And you smell like one too.

Ah, that nifty era-esq hairstyle.
Like the boys on Eight is Enough.

I wish I had that head of hair now....

Well, the love shines through all the insults.

Don't you think "insults" is a bit strong anonymous? It's just a little good natured sibling teasing.

Anon 11:07 If you think that was "insults"
obviously does not read many blogs.
Happy Birthday

Your nephew looks just like his Dad and Grandad!

A very nice tribute Kristabel. I am only glad my mother gave me all of my childhood pics, because God knows what Esteban and Fredo would be cooking up right now.

Fredo is only sorry no pictures, or footage of my infamous tantrum I threw in a Supermarket at the age of two were uncovered. It was over Crave Cat Food. I can hear Fredo telling the story again!!! Some things you can never live down I guess.

Nice Tribute, all the same.

Thanks, boy. I like your new avatar!
When are you inviting the brothers up so I can hear the stories???

Carol...funny, isn't it? When the adorable genius nephew was born, we compared his picture to pics. of Dad and Grandpa - they could've been triplets!
