Brin Brin



Brin Brin is my favorite cousin! Now, you all know that ALL of my cousins are my favorite in some way or other, so don't get your feelings hurt!! I am not being partial to one or the other! Brin was born when I was in 4th grade, and I remember making her a jewelry box before she was even born. I was so excited that Aunt Renee was going to have a baby, and I know she was too! I should have been jealous that she had a baby girl, because up until Brin was born I was pretty much Aunt Renee's baby girl! She spoiled me in every way that she would her own daughter (she didn't punish me too often so I enjoyed being at her house!!!). I can remember rocking Brin when she was tiny! She was always funny---and still is! I can always count on a good story and a good laugh from Brin. Even though she has been through some tough times in the past few years, she has always had something to smile about, and she has always kept her head held high. Now, she has graduated from college with a teaching degree, and is engaged to be married to a great guy! I can't believe how time has flown by!! Even though she is 9 years younger than I am, she always passed on her clothes to me!! She is a bit taller than I am! One of my favorite memories of Brin is when I went on vacation with them and we were at a drive-thru zoo. Uncle Rowland wanted Brin to look at one of the animals and she absolutely refused to look out the window. She kept telling Uncle Rowland she was reading her book. (She was only about 2 or 3 years old at the time and couldn't read!) Uncle Rowland got very irritated with her over that!! I was trying to coax her into looking out the window also. She was not going for it!! It is still funny to me! I know that Brin will be a GREAT teacher and a wonderful wife, and I can't wait until she has a beautiful baby of her own (I'm not rushing you on that though, Brin!) Windy and I (and whoever else wants to help!) are planning on having a wonderfully fun wedding shower for Brin when it gets closer to her wedding!!!

I'll have to agree with you...Brin Brin is sho'nuff special and lots of laughs. You have had some pretty powerful posts lately... I can't seem to think of anything exciting to write about. I'm sure something will come to me soon.

I love Brin too. She has always been the funniest one of the bunch. She always has a funny story to tell. I love to she her laugh. I hope she has a great marriage and lots of kids someday!!

Thanks ya'll. You really know how to make a girl feel good. I never knew I was so funny, but you seemed to forget the part about me being the prettiest cousin, too. Caci, you forgot to add the part (in the drive thru zoo story) where Dad beat my butt. You can hear that real good on the video tape Mom has. I enjoy reading everyone's blogs, and maybe mom can show me how to make one of my own.

"Funniest one of the bunch"? Crap, I thought I had that one hands down!

Caci said...

Yeah Brin, I was saving the part about your dad beating your butt so people wouldn't know things like that happened! But you are right, it is documented on the tape!

BrinBrin...I hope your mom finds the time to show you how to get into the blogging business. Of course, there is always your favorite aunt who would love to give you free "blogaholic" lessons. Windy, Melissa, and Caci would probably love to assist too. Michael has helpful hints to offer also.
