Here is my brother Scott holding Princess A. She is laughing because Uncle Scott is so nervous and holding her like a newborn baby.My brother lives in Kansas so we don’t get to see him much but every day I am reminded of him because Princess A has the exact same chin as him! I love my brother and he is the best brother in the world. I am not saying that because he is my only brother. I have always been bad at giving him gifts though because we are exact opposites. He loves to hunt and would rather be up at 6am sitting in a duck blind than walking around the fabulous streets of New York. I remember when he was about 5 years old, I bought him a toy that seemed cool but didn’t work and he pretended to like it. I kept telling him we could return it but he said he loved it. I know he was lying because I never saw him play with the toy again!The one thing we have in common is our love of dogs. Last month when I was taking Freckles for his annual check-up I walked by the Beretta store. I had heard my brother talk about this company but thought they only sold guns. I went in anyway to check it out.It is a beautiful store that has clothes, wonderful gifts for dog lovers, and home furnishings that I would even purchase for my apartment.Freckles loved the store because they had tons of books about  and paintings of Spaniels!So I found his birthday gift and they wrapped it up so nice!Now that it is his birthday I can reveal what was in the box. Black Lab cufflinks made of glass from Milan. They are so pretty and I wish they had some Cavalier King Charles cufflinks for The Husband! My brother has 2 Black Labs named Bullet and Dixie so I knew he would love this gift! I can’t wait to see pictures of him all dressed up and sporting them!

Happy Birthday Scott! We love you!


Shannon, Aaron, Princess A, and Freckles

      Thanks he appreciates it… he went to Australia as a baby and wants to go back because he doesn’t remember it!

    I think I may have had something to do with Amelia’s chin! 🙂 If I lose the rest of my weight overage (30 pounds so far), my true chin may show up.
