My Mom's Birthday

Tommorrow is my mom's birthday. She has been asking me for quite some time to get our picture taken. My parents remodeled their bedroom last year. We worked really had to get a more modern feel. A clean fresh simple feel. My mom would always say, "I like the way you house feels. How could we incorporate that into our house?" So that is exsactly what we did with their bedroom. It tured out so well. My mom absolutley loves it. I do too! There was only one thing that was not complete. The only picture frames in the whole room were one over my Dad's nightstand and one over my Mom's. She wanted to put a picture of Matt in one and Me in the other. So, sadly all of this time goes by and those to frames are hanging with the original things that came in them. Needless to say she will be very happy to finally have the pictures in them that she imagined. The room is chocolate brown and aqua. The "spa feeling" that she wanted. HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM! Hope she likes them.

Oh yea I almost forgot. This is my BIG brother. Yea, and emphasis on BIG. He is almost a foot taller than me, and for those of you that know, I am pretty tall for a girl. He measures in at a little over 6"7. I am 5"8, and do not want to be any taller. I was always scared when I was younger, thinking that I might not stop growing. It seemed like he never would. Matt is 18 months older than me, and he is my only sibling. He is also living with me right now until he graduates from college in May. We are so OPPOSITE....

He is kinda quiet, and obviously I am not.

He likes to stay at home, and I like to see people.

He is very good at math, and I was horrible at it.

He was a great basketball player (he played in college), I on the other hand fouled out in the first half (a little too agressive).

He is very compassionate, and I am not.(I'm working on it!)

I would walk into a room of strangers and be friends with them when I left. If you could even get him to go than, he would wait for someone to talk to him, and then answer with one word.

I like to take risks, he would always do it the sure way.

I would jump out of a plane (oh, acctually i DID!), he would wet his pants before he would get on a baby rollercoaster.

He is extremely sarcastic and humorous, all I can do is make myself laugh.

He can always make fun of me somehow, and i never have a comeback.

He always said I was the smartest by far, and he is the one going to graduate from college. YEA!

He is very musically talented, I cannot clap my hands and stay on beat.

He also would spend all day trying to teach me, and I could care less!

I am someone to make my mind up to do something and cannot rest till it's done, and he would wait till the very last minute.

He can watch a movie once and remember every funny line in it. I would stand up in front of everyone to tell them the funny line and realize i couldnt remember how it went at all. He would always finish it for me, and make me freel really dumb for opening my mouth after that. In a loving way! ;O)

I love to travel and see new things, he would just rather me bring home the pictures and he will edit them and make me something cool!

He is amazing at anything electronic or computer related, and I just get flustered and give up!

When we were young we would have coloring contests. He woul have it colored perfectly in the lines, and mine would we decorated on with multi color stripes and polka dots. Mom would never pick a winner she would always say, "Yall both win! I can't pick, the each of yours are so different!" We HATED that!
I like sweets, he does't. (maybe that is why we probably weight the same, and he is a foot taller!)
He loves milk, not only do I hate the taste of it, but I cannot drink it because I am lactose intolorant.
He could eat pizza every meal of everyday for his whole life. I never wanted it.
He likes chocolate, and I like sweettarts.
The list of how different we are could go on and on forever.

But what I really like about him is his quiet spirit. I wish I could be as good of listener as he is.
By the way, we do have a couple things in common....

We both have CURLY HAIR, and we LOVE eachother a lot!

Thank you for being a great brother! I love you Matty!
