regardless, we are here tonight to talk about my middle brother B
here he is with our mom and dad
i'm very happy to report that now i wouldn't trade him for anything!! we have definitely come a LONG way in our relationship, which i'm very happy about!
ok - so just 3 things about B that you may or may not know!
1) the boy EXCELS at card games. it doesn't matter what we are playing: go fish, old maid, texas hold 'em or rook, he will beat you almost EVERY time ... he has the inane ability to read the entire situation, almost know every time what cards every other player is holding in their hands and what card they are going to play next. he's really difficult to beat and every time we have a family gathering where cards are involved, we all want B on our team!!

3) the thing I will love B the most for - is the fact that he gave me my very 1st niece. my shorty :) i met her for the 1st time when she was about 2 weeks old and she stole my heart from that very first meeting. she lives in a different state so B doesn't get to see her very often. but when he does, he makes sure he treasures the time he has with her and makes sure she is around the entire family as much as possible. i'm so grateful to him for giving me my first change to be an auntie :) a job you all must know by now that i cherish

so there you have it ... i'm thinking that you all wish you had a middle brother like mine :)
