Happy Birthday Patrick!

Happy Birthday Patrick!
Christi, Patrick, Aimee: Just the 3 of us with that special brother sister bond
( and no Christi never has her eyes open in pictires)
Not many pictures for our recent celebration but just a few of the three of us.  Last Friday August the 13th, was my brother's 24th birthday.  We celebrated Sunday with a family get together for dinner and cake.  It was all so yummy.  It is hard to believe Patrick is grown up.  He has always been my baby brother and I have always tried to take care of him.  I sometimes forget he has already entered the adult world and then he will call me and we will have one of those conversations full of worry, advice or problems that you only encounter once you get to the "grown up" world. And that is when reality hits... Patrick isn't a baby anymore.  I am very proud of the man he has become with that go get um attitude based on strong beliefs in God that always pick him up and get him through that next trial of life.  It is funny to me how much we are a like.  I know that when something so small is important to me and doesn't seem to be to anyone in the rest of the world I can always count  on Patrick to find that same importance in what is so important to me.  He is my very best friend somone I can always count on, to share a good cry with or a good laugh.  Worry with or share a problem with someone I always count on.  It's hard to believe that he is getting married in just 2 short months, but I guess that's what happens when you grow up.  So for my baby brother who totally gets this next statement even if no one else does:
Happy Birthday day, Happy Birthday week, AND Happy Birthday Month!

Caroline and her Uncle P!
