Today is my brother James’ birthday! I wish I could find a picture where he's just being "himself". James has a library of funny faces and expressions and manages to ruin at least one group shot with his...face. Think Jim Carey kind of funny. Somehow those pictures become our favorites, as they always bring a smile, a laugh, and a, “he’s so weird.”
Mom says he used to hate the feeling of the sock seam touching his toes, so he would turn his socks inside-out. He’s also pretty chatty. He used to go out and talk my dad’s ear off while he was working in the garden (when he was about the age in the picture above). My dad would come in wide-eyed and sigh, “does he ever stop asking questions?” Now he’s all grown up and married to an awesome girl named Heather. He graduated this past May from George Mason. We were all very proud of him. He works for the FTC and they live in VA. Happy birthday, James!
