Happy Birthday, Daniel!

My little brother (who towers over me, he's so tall) is 23 years old today! Happy birthday from the three of us here!

I have a bunch of family photos that I borrowed and scanned, with the hopes of being able to order prints and make some scrapbook albums with pictures from when we were growing up.

This was one of my favorite photos of my brother Daniel. I don't know why I liked this so much. Maybe it was the fact that he looks happy. Uncomplicated, simple happiness. No other family members to associate this photo with. No special event with other memories competing for the spotlight.

Just a simple photo of a boy sitting on dirt outside looking content.

Happy Birthday Daniel, wish we were there to celebrate with you.

Love, Dawn and the boys

I know how I love my birthday so I hope that Daniel has as good a birthday as I did. I am sure he felt the love you and your family! What a wonderful sister.

It was me the one deleted, I mess up with my two blog identities sometimes. I just wanted to say that I agree, it's a lovely photo and do congratulate your brother from me!

Thanks Vickie and Ilva! The blog is a nice place to put up a greeting since my brother and I live in different states. That might change soon tho!

Awww... adorable photo and such a nice tribute to your brother. My sister lives all the way accross the country in Seattle, so I know how hard it is to be separated from a sibling. I bet he appreciated this post!
