Today is my brother-in-law Lowell's birthday.

Let me just say this about Lowell: Nobody could ask for a better big brother. He and Anna started dating when I was practically a baby, so I really don't remember life without Lowell. He's taken me to ball games, bought me fried shrimp when we went out to eat, (because it was my favorite thing to order when I was little,) made me laugh, made me cry, made me mad, and been generally great. (Except when he's not. But that's a true brother for you.)

What's Lowell like? Oh, well, he loves holding hands at the table, hugs are his favorite things ever, he loves someone taking pictures of him, and he could watch "Anne of Green Gables" for hours and hours on end, as long as it's followed by a long session of "Pride and Prejudice." (The six hour version, of course.)

Just kidding. He's the opposite of all that.

But he loves Disney World, which means he goes whenever he can convince Anna, and they take me along. So I'm not complaining that he would rather watch "Iron Man" than "Anne of Green Gables."

Basically, I love him bushels.

And I'm going to give you a birthday hug the next time I see you, Lowell. Okay? Get prepared.

p.s. Oh, look! It's Lowell experiencing two of his favorite things - hugs and pictures! If he wasn't so difficult about having his picture taken, I'd have a decent picture to post of him, but he is, so I don't.

Your relationship with yoru brother-in-law sounds a lot like my relationship with my brother-in-law :)
Been part of the family(basically) since I was born... when I was little he would put me in a big bucket and swing me around while he sang circus songs :D
