Happy Birthday, Scott!

Today is my brother Scott's birthday - Happy Birthday!  I made this card in his honor - it's not exactly a birthday card, but it is a card that a sister might give to her brother.  The sentiment says, "We may be brother and sister but our hearts say we are friends."  We weren't friends growing up - we fought a lot, probably because we are only 15 months apart.  Scott actually wrote a poem about brothers and sisters when he was in elementary that went something like this (this is completely from memory!):

Cats and dogs hate each other
They are like sister and brother
All day long they kick and fight
But sometimes they just snuggle up tight

Sweet, right?!  Well, now we are adults, and while we aren't close, we are friends.  :-)
