Tougher than it looks

Betty Davis once said, “Getting old ain’t for sissies” (found here).

Well, that is certainly true for one person who is having a very important birthday today. June 16th is my big brother’s 30th birthday!

He may be tough now, but I would like to offer evidence that proves that wasn’t always the case.

ages 7 and 9

Matching easter outfits with your sister = not tough


ages 7 and 9 - 2

Questionable outfit at Universal Studios = definitely not tough


cool in Solvang

Somehow pulling off looking tough and completely uninterested on the front of a surrey in Solvang only a few short years later!


And most recently:

Easter 2009


Oh, he may look tough now, but he still freaks out whines like a baby has some trouble when someone asks him to test his blood sugar for fun using one of my lancets!

Happy Birthday Big Brother! See you in a few weeks!

    Happy Birthday to your big brother! Continue to give him crap about anything and everything, cause that’s what little sisters do!

    And if he gives you any any lip, threaten to poke him with a lancet!

    For all of you who are worried my brother might kill me for this… I guess it’s a good thing he doesn’t read my blog then, huh?! 🙂
