Little Brother Turns 22

This would be my little brother Chris.  Today he turned 22 and I am pretty sure when your little brother turns 22 that makes you kind of old.

Now lets see what all can I say about him?

Well for starters he is currently working on an intern ship in Germany for BMW and going to school taking class in all Germana.

He can play just about any musical instrument you put in front of him just after a short time.

He loves to run and be outside and active.

He use to be shy when he was younger but he is now one of the most outgoing people I know.

He loves Miniature Dachshunds.  Here he is holding the fake one my friend Chelsey and I got him a few years ago at a flea market and painted.

He is a huge part of our family and without him we wouldn't be the same.  These past few months without him the house has been too quite, there has been just a little less laughter, and things just are not the same. 

Before Chris's high school graduation.

My brother and I as young kids use to love to fight, never agreeing on anything but as we get older he is quickly becoming not just my brother but also my friend. 

Chris and I at Oktoberfest in Ohio last fall.
If I had to say just one thing to Chris it would be that "I am so proud of the man you are becoming and I am thankful to have you as a brother"

I maybe the big sister but I look up to my little brother.

Happy Birthday Chris! You are 22 now and that means all the "cute birthday years" are over.  You know like how you couldn't wait to turn 13 because you are finally a teenager, or 16 to get a drivers license, or 18 because you are now an adult, and 21 because you can drink.

  Welcome to 22 where it is just another birthday!
