Happy Birthday Paul!!!

Along with today being St. Patty's day...it's also the birthday of my little baby brother, Paul. I know he reads this blog, but I would have never guessed because he's the ultimate stalker. He's only once left a comment and I think I almost fell over in shock because of it. Although when I see him in person, he has plenty to say about my blog so... I thought i'd share some photos of him with you all...


Here he is channeling early years Jacques Cousteau when we were in Hawaii this past year. He's blind without his glasses so I was glad he made it back to the boat after our snorkle trip. Twice. And here's another one...we like to tease him about his pink phone.


I am wearing his sunglasses which I think are very Kayne West gangsta. I know, I, know...don't ask what I was doing. It's a long story. And when he's around, I ALWAYS find strange photos on my camera when I download them. Like these!!!




He's very creative, musically talented, and bakes a mean fruit pie and rocks the homeade donuts. He plays pictionary with my kids, is a free-spirit and is single-handedly bringing back the skinny jeans look. We love you, Uncle Paul!!!

Here is a layout I did on myscrap retreat of Paul and my daughter. They love hanging out together and just talking, talking, talking!!!

I made this using goodies from the March Crazy Daisy Kit. Check out that bling!!! YUMMO!!


So...Paul...have a fantastic birthday today!!! And thanks for stopping by today...maybe a comment for me...huh Paul? Huh??? Do I have to beg?????

Happy birthday to Paul! Too funny about the snorkling...I'm the same way, blind without my glasses and my husband had to chase after me once while snorkling cause apparently I was too far away and didn't see the people leading the tour waving me back! heehee! Those pics of your kids are too cool!

Paul rocks!!!! best little brother ever!!!! Love the LO with him & Kayla :)

Paul said...

NOTE: I lost those white sunglasses and that pink phone broke. Which means we'll never again be able to create that photo. This blog entry stands in testament to both of those items.

Sarah: update your blog.

PPS: I hope Kayla and Kevin are honing their Pictionary skills in anticipation of the inevitable rematch of the "no parents no rules Pictionary game night Maui 2009."
