My Baby Bro...

... is getting MARRIED!! I just can't believe it. It seems like just yesterday that he was 2 years old and my sister I were picking on him!

Adam is 6 years younger then me. We have always been close. We have always respected each other and when we were younger we rarely (if ever) fought. Some of that, I am sure had to do with the age difference. But I think even more had to do with the amount of love that I felt for my baby Brother.

He is a kind soul. He never has anything negative to say. About anyone. Even people that should have negative things said about them!!
When I found out that I had cancer I couldn't even call him. It was too difficult. I regret that he had to find out by email. I am sorry for that Adam. I just couldn't tell you. Just writing about telling him is bringing tears to my eyes! Sorry Bubba.

In order to celebrate their marriage, we had his fiance's bachelorette party this weekend. I am happy to report it was VERY calm. We had a few drinks, ate some pizza, and watched a movie. Yes, I said watched a movie. This is what Cherie chose and I was happy to oblige. It was actually nice to hang out with my family and just talk.
Congratulations Uncle Adam. You are marrying a very sweet young lady. I am a little upset about my little brother getting married though. What if you don't need me now that you have a wife? Please promise me that you will always need me, k?!

My sister, Jacki, my future sister in law, Cherie, and me.

Aunt Cherie, Ella, and Uncle Adam

PS My next post is my 200th post!

What ever should I blog about? I am thinking, since I skipped this on my 100th post, blogging about 100 things about me. What do you guys think? Does anyone really want to know 100 random things about me?

I did a ten lists of ten for my 1ooth--you could do a 10 of 20 ;)

Congrats to your bro.....I never had a brother but always wished I did. I see my older daughters with their younger brothers and I see the bond you described growing--I LOVE it!

Aren't baby brothers amazing? Congrats to him and his bride to be!

Wendi said...

Yay for little brothers, and weddings, and still needing us.
I would love to hear more random things about you.
Congratulations on your upcoming 200th post!
Geesh...I am just making it to 100!

Kelli said...

Go for it! Maybe even 200 things...now that would be impressive. haha!

Sounds like you guys had a nice girls' night. I agree it is a little weird when your younger siblings start marrying off...my brother and sister both got married within a month of each other. It was a little crazy around here to say the least! :)

Susan said...

Seeing as how you have a lot of new readers lately, I think 100 random things would be perfect!
I hope my son and daughter have the close relationship that you have with your brother..and his future wife.

Christy said...

You know, I have written almost 400 posts, and I have never celebrated any of the big numbers - like 100 or 200. Maybe I'll post 400 things about myself? Do you think that is too much?

Anyways, I would love to read 100 random things about you! Do it!

My baby brother (who happens to be six years younger than me as well) is getting married next summer. It does seem like he's still such a baby.....but he really is a grown-up man now. Hard to let go, I know!
