He Ain't Heavy......He's my Brother

32 years ago today...........my mom gave birth to my very first friend. My brother Chris.
We are two years apart and I love him so much. "Chrissy", as we used to call him growing up, is both the smartest and the funniest person I have ever met. I was glad I was older so I didn't have to grow up in his shadow. He was one of those people that everyone loved and was good at everything (except maybe basketball). ha!
I can't wait for this summer to go to his wedding and see him marry this pretty girl! I'm so glad our family is growing! (FINALLY!)
I love you Chris - Happy Birthday!!!!!
March 12th is obviously a popular day (something about Summer loving I guess (ha!)) - today is also my Aunt Kathy's birthday, my childhood friend Micaela's birthday and my Sunday School teacher Jason's birthday! So here is a shout out to everyone I know who has a birthday today! You are all very special to me! :-)

Chris is the most creative and interesting person I have ever met. He was always so much fun to be around.

Chris is so cute and his bride-to-be is beautiful. It's so sweet that you called him your "first friend." We have lots of Horton March birthdays...four! I never thought about that summer lovin' thing, but I think it's true!!! :)

I hope Anna and David will consider the other their "first friend" that is SO sweet. I am laughing because I so remember that when you are trying to have a baby you are always calculating things like "summer lovin"! :)

What a sweet post. It made me want to call my brother. We're 2.5 years apart. I hope he finds a pretty girl soon. =)
