Upcoming Nuptials

My little (big) brother, James is getting married this coming Sunday. This makes me sound so old, but I remember the day he was born--I cried. And not with happiness. I was pissed that he wasn't a girl (I was only 10). I already had one brother I didn't want another one! But I quickly got over that and when I wasn't tormenting him and my other brother, Jake, we had fun! I moved out of the house when I was 18 and my younger brothers were only 8 and 6 so I missed a lot of their growing up years at home, but I am happy we still have a good relationship. James is marrying a great girl and I think he knows it, so I see this marriage being a long and happy one. We are very much looking forward to welcoming Aimee into the family.

The quality of the first two pictures isn't hot. I had to take them out of my scrapbook and scan. This first picture is of new baby James and big sister, Shelly, who by that point was over her snit because he wasn't a girl!

James and our brother Jacob. I crack up every time I look at this picture. This was probably taken in 1979.

James a few years later with our nephew, Jaxon (his dad is the baby in the picture above).
James and his future bride. They will make pretty babies.

You're brothers are adorable! That picture of you is awesome too--you look the same (well, w/a modern hair style of course.) Congrats to your brother!
