Happy Birthday Jeff and John!




I've done a lot of gushing over the love of my life, so I thought I'd keep his birthday post a little more light-hearted. Plus, he shares his day with his twin brother, so it wouldn't be fair if I spent too much time just focussing on John. As you'll notice from the photos, Jeff and John didn't exactly look like twins - nor did they necessarily act like twins. You could count on John to be the one getting into trouble and causing mischief... and Jeff was the more responsible of the two and more disciplined - as evidenced by his accolades in academics and sports. If you've ever heard John's testimony, that shouldn't surprise you. Look carefully and you might just see a little bit of Brayden passed on from his daddy....

Sorry for the picture quality - believe it or not, they were snapped from my camera from the tv - based on the DVD John made for us of our wedding and growing up years. (I'm watching it right now as I type - man, do I love this guy!!!!)

Happy Birthday, Jeff and John - Laura and I are so proud of you - as is everyone you know. We love you!

Happy, happy birthday Johnny! We love you so much! Spoil yourself rotten - enjoy a brownie or two - you deserve it! :)
I still remember so vividly the moment I had the privilege of leading you into the sanctuary on your wedding day to your waiting bride - being the only one to witness that split second moment of your anticipation in seeing Stephanie for the first time before pictures and the ceremony. I recall thinking that this man could not possibly love and cherish my best friend and sister more - many tears were shed following that event in recognition of how very blessed we are to have you in our family. Since then, I have recognized how very much fun it has been to have a brother - a very dear male best friend in my life - and an excellent scrabble player to boot. :)
We love you John Riley! Happy Birthday!
Oh - and Happy Birthday Jeff too!
