Lub Lub The Great

My youngest brother is 19 years old today.
Dude, you're so old dude!
I remember when you were little,
and your buddah belly hung over your diaper.
I remember when you would smile and melt us all.
You would dance and sing to Newsies like it was your
own broadway musical.
Dude, remember that one time when you stepped
on our neighbors duckling?
So not cool.
Remember that time when you wrecked the car,
or that time you chopped off half your finger
in the planer?
So not cool.
But dude, remember that time when you bought me candy,
or that time you laughed at my nerdy jokes?
Or remember that time you stayed home to hang,
instead of being with your friends?
So cool.
You stand for loyalty, goodness, and strength.
I'm so proud of the man you've become.
I'm tearing up just thinking about it,
for reals.
Caleb-
you'll never know how cool I think YOU are.
What a buddy to me, and Chris, and the kids, you've become.
You are the king of studs....
after all,
it is Calebs house,
not Grandma and Grandpas!

Dude, you rock,
and I love you!
Happy Birthday!!
