DISCLAIMER: PAY NO ATTENTION TO THE GIRL IN THE EXCESSIVELY RUFFLED GRANDMOTHER DRESS. FOR MY SAKE. PLEASE.
Ok, I know you saw it. It was bad, I know. Let's move past it. Please put all of your attention on the little guy in the middle. That is my baby brother, Stephen. I hate to say it, but I still think of him as being not much older than he was in the picture. But, this is apparently not the case as my BABY brother graduated from high school Saturday!
That's crazy talk! To me at least. But then again apparently he's also cemented in his mind the image of me in the grandmother dress as he thinks I'm ancient. And so not cool. Ahem. Well, back in the day mister...ok, let's not kid ourselves, this has term has never really applied. Reference point: the excessively ruffled grandmother dress.
Anyway, I'm so proud of him! He graduated #8 in his class, the highest of all of us kids. Congrats, Stephen! A whole passel of my cousins graduated alongside him this weekend as well. Congrats to Bryan, Derek and Jonathan!
So from the Girl in the Excessively Ruffled Grandmother Dress to her bab...excuse me, to her college bound little (couldn't help it) brother:
Congratulations! I am so proud of you! And I love you!
Okay, okay---teared up on this one! Great pics, too. Stephen looks so handsome and ready for the world. BTW -I think you looked super in that grandmother dress, and yes, I can attest it was the fashion then!ReplyDelete
I was actually going to ask where you found that dress...I'd like one in every color! ;) HAHA So funny...the things parents do to us kids!! Oh well...it will be our turn to humiliate ours within the next few years! Congrats to your brother! My little brother is bigger than me too...::tear::...they're not so little anymore!ReplyDelete
Thanks for affirmation, Lisa! And you know what? I think my mom might have actually MADE that dress so I may have gotten myself into trouble here. OOPS. Steph - I'll ask Mom if she can make you one!ReplyDelete
Hey! Yes I did make that dress...Along with an equally overly-ruffled grandmother dress for myself! Take heart - at least we weren't matching.ReplyDelete
