So, I posted a video of my brother on the day before his birthday.
Did I acknowledge that it was going to be his birthday the next day? No.
Did I say how awesome it is that, not only does he have an amazing voice, but he can also transform it to sound just like Neil Diamond? No.
Did I mention how cool it is that he brought a microphone to the beach simply so that he could plug it into a cd player and sing?? No.
And last, but not least, did I even call him on his birthday?? No!!

(fyi - I'm the worst at remembering and acknowledging birthdays. I totally forgot Max's first birthday. luckily, he won't remember)

Anyways, I felt bad that I posted that video and mentioned everyone in the video BESIDES the awesome singer on the day before his birthday. Bad form.
So I'm going to attempt to make up for it by posting a video of a video - yes, that is my living room you can see in the reflection (ew, and me for a couple of seconds. creepy).
This is 8 years ago at the "after party" of mine and Zach's wedding reception. We brought out the karaoke machine just for the close family and friends.
I don't know for sure, but I think this is where Ben's karaoke kick began. He sang a few songs that night, but my favorite is when he and I collaborated on a little Coolio.
Don't be jealous. Our lyrics are bottomless....

Happy birthday brother. Taya - Let Ben know I didn't forget him entirely. I assume he's not a reader of my blog since I don't write about submarines.

Ashlynn came up while I was watching this and she says, "Is she pretty? She is huh? She is beauty." :)

That's right ladies, that is my husband and he rocks. I don't think I have seen this since your reception. Can't you see why I married him? He is awesome. And maybe you should write about submarines, then he would for sure become a follower :)

I remember this!! Y'all did good. I also remember being MORTIFIED when Chris made me get up there with him and do "Welcome to Miami". I am TERRIBLE at karaoke!! I always think of Ben when I hear "Nights in White Satin". Find that video where he played a missionary (?) who was singing about missing his girlfriend. "and I love you...YES I LOVE YOU!!" That was awesome.
