A Birthday shout out to my oldest brother...

My brother John's birthday was yesterday and I decided to dedicate this special post just for him. (My friend, Whitney, does this with her family and I thought it was a great idea, so yes, I am copying your idea). I also thought this was a good way to introduce my brother to my friends who have never met him before.
John William Johnson, born February 11th and no, I don't remember the year. And John is probably fine with me not announcing that. :-) He is my oldest brother and currently he resides in a small town in Oregon. He loves anything that allows him to be outdoors and he loves having a beard. Here he is sitting with my younger brother, Aaron at Christmas a couple years back.













He shaved his beard that night for our family picture the next day. He was surprising my Mom, but funny story, the first thing she noticed was how nice his new sweater looked on him. :-) The picture below is him clean-shaven with our nieces, Megan and Brooklyn, and our nephew, Brandon. Some of my fondest memories of John go back to when I was younger and John was still living at home. Some of his buddies would come over and they would play on the guitar and sing and I just loved listening to them. I also love his nickname for me...Amylou. So, Happy Birthday Johnnypooh (okay, not quite as cute...but when I was younger it was all I came up with). Love you brother! Hope you have a fabulous year.

I think he looks much better without the beard. Hope he had a great day! What a good sister you are.
