Happy Birthday Big Brover

Today is my OLDer brother's 38th birthday!!
Happy Birthday Billy! 
Let's take a journey back in time, shall we?
What a good big brother... playing with his little sis on the beach. Check out my '90s sunglasses
Whew, long day... I love this picture. The Newton kids love their sleep.

Not exactly sure when this picture was taken, maybe 12 years ago?
L to R: Steph, Billy, Me, Kristen, and Joe

I love this pic of Billy and my Missy girl. This was right after Missy joined the family. I miss her so much!!

Papas flew out to LA last night to spend the big day with Billy... they are going to play golf today, and I have to go to work :( boo. Billy introduced us to Guitar Hero last night and it was SO much fun. Billy is really, really, really good. As for me, I'm determined to get better by the time I leave LA :) I'll just have to practice, practice, practice... darn, LOL

Some of my most memorable memories involve this dude. 
Like the time, oh who am I kidding, the times he would make me smell his shoes or hang them off my ears. 
Or when he told me my name was Michael Jordan. I would actually tell people that was my name when they would ask. 
Gullible little sister? I think so. 
Oh, and this is the one where I actually remember being a typical little sister and running to my dad to tattle: One morning I got dressed in my orange shirt and gray shorts from the Hard Rock Cafe, and I skipped downstairs. Billy was sitting in the living room about to watch the UGA vs. Clemson game. Oh, did I mention that Billy is a DEDICATED Georgia graduate and fan? So, to continue the story... Billy told me that I needed to go upstairs and change; it was not okay for me to wear orange that day. Well, being the stubborn girl that I am, I refused. He then told me that if I didn't change clothes, he wouldn't talk to me the rest of the day. I don't really remember what happened after that, but I do remember that I did not change my orange ensemble :)
Because of my brother (and his family), I have a wonderful place to live for the summer in LA. It is because of their generosity that I had the opportunity to take an unpaid internship and volunteer at HOBY for the summer. :) So grateful!

Happy Birthday Billy!
