Woogie's birthday

Today is my baby brother's birthday. Ok, so he's not really a baby anymore. He's 21. Holy crap! 21??? Where did the time go? Walker (aka "Woogie") has been serving a mission for our church since October 2005. I was pregnant with Livie when he left, so he hasn't met his cute little niece yet. But he will in October & he'll fall in love with her!! Anyway- I wrote huge post about his 20th bday last year complete with pics. He's a total cutie, so check out that post.

One of my favorite things about Walker is he's very animated. I used to catch him "playing" in his room. Like once he was playing poker or something with imaginary people and he rolled on the floor and drew his "gun." It was funny and even more entertaining because he was like 13 at the time!! I remember our sister, Nicole, & I dressed him up the best we could as an amish guy made him lip sync "Amish Paradise" by Weird Al. He did it soooo good!! We lip sync a song every Christmas and one year he picked "I Want It That Way" by The Backstreet Boys. We fought over who did Nick's part. I decided since he was like 14 and I was 24 I should probably let him do it. He taught me all the moves and stuff, but I'm just not a natural at performing like he is.

Anyway... that's my brother. He's awesome and could talk the paint off a wall, but ya know, that's ok. Happy Birthday Woogs!! I love you!!!

I could totally sense how much you love your bro from your post. My brothers are great huggers. Yay for your brother's birthday! Double yay for him coming home soon. That will be really great for your family to hug him again!

Oh, and P.S.- of course he will totally love Liv. She is so cute he won't really have a choice- she have him wrapped around her finger in no time at all.

My sister just turned 20. We should totally hook them up. :-) Then we'd be family!

I hope he had a fantastic birthday!

Happy birthday to your brother. Sounds like you he is a fun brother.

Too bad he didn't serve a mission in Pennsylvania where I served. There were lots of Amish there! :)
