Category: Best Big Sister Ever



And the Award goes to.....drum roll......ME!! Yes, me, I win big sister of the year. You probably can't tell from these pictures because they are from my cell phone but they were taken at the Jonas Brothers concert. On Sunday night I took my 13 year old sister Daphna to Birmingham to see the Jo Bros. My parents bought the tickets for her birthday and I agreed to take her. Lucky me...ha ha. Actually, minus the screaming, and you can imagine in a civic center full of teenage girls how much screaming there was, it was a really good show. I don't mind the music they sing and I know some of their songs from Daphna, if you have been around her any in the last 2 years these boys are ALL she talks about (and that is not an exaggeration). She has even taught Mary Selwyn the chorus to "Burning Up." MSN dances and sings this song all the time. It is hilarious. It was a fun tirp, almost made me feel 13 again, but boy am I glad that I'm not. So I win big sister of the year and now I am super cool because I have seen the Jonas Brothers live in concert. I know you are all jealous.

I happen to still be in montgomery becasue in the midst of all this fun Shay's family suffered a very devastating loss. Shay's cousin Lee died Sunday morning at the very young age of 33. He left behind a precious wife, Caroline, and two sweet babies, Ann, 2, and Matt will be a year old next week. It has been a long, emotional and heartbreaking week. Please keep the family in your in prayers. The preacher used a verse during the service that has really stayed with me this week. John 16:33 "I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world."
