|My first birthday|
When we were teenagers, it got awkward and we rarely talked.
|Awkward... Don't you love my knee socks?|
At his confirmation
|Awkward family photo|
at my confirmation
|Awkward...again... I won't even comment on my shirt...|
|Awkward photo at Christmas.... even our cats look awkward...|
|Smooches! With cooties!!!|
Sure, we still goof around like only siblings can. But, he's the only person who "knew me when", knows all of the childhood stories, gets all the inside family jokes, and, despite all of that, still wants to be my friend.
|Me, Mom, Dad and Jason|

Love you, Jason!
