Jon was the cutest baby ever! He is a big fat rollie pollie and looked like a little old man!
Jon had BIG dreams as a kid. When he was a kid, his life long aspiration was to be the trashman when he grew up because he could "find neat stuff".
Jon was/is the skinniest kid you will ever meet. But, he can push is belly out to look like he is 7 months pregnant.
When Jon was about 5, I told him mom and dad weren't his real parents. At his next birthday his real parents were coming to pick him up. He cried for days about it.
Jon's underwear math is 1pair = 7 days. We spent a week with my Aunt one summer. At the end of the week, she was washing all of our clothes and Jon only have 1 pair of dirty underwear.
Jon's favorite song is "Mommy-busters". When we were older, we stayed home alone during the summers. We would usually fight and Jon would threaten to call Mom. (Calling Mom at work = big trouble, if it wasn't an emergency) So, I made up a song. "Who ya' gonna call??? MOMMY-BUSTERS!" It worked like a charm every time and kept
Jon loves the girls and they love him. He is one of their favorite people...(but, he has taken a backseat to Aunt Nicole)
Jon's favorite place to store things....under his bed. Can't find his shoes. Check under the bed. Missing his coat. Check under his bed. He even had a lunchbox with a stale sandwich under his bed once.
Jon still uses the tiger headcover that I bought him for Christmas about 10 years ago.
Jon shaved one long strip down his leg with my razor once.
Jon is a great golfer, awesome bagg-o player and generally good at everything he does. (It's pretty annoying.)
Jon had a dog named Gabby, with an extra toe (Du-Claw, as he called it).
Jon used to highlight his hair...actually, he let ME highlight his hair with a home kit from Walmart.
Jon threw every pair of shoes I owned off the deck in the dark.
Jon can quote/act out every line of Ace Ventura: Pet Detective
Jon refused to cut his hair when he was in the 9th grade. His hair never got long. It just got big...like a helmet.
Jon's favorite thing in the world was Ninja Turtles. He owned every action figure, a sleeping bag, all the movies and even ninja turtle under-roos.
Happy birthday, Jon! No matter how old you get, you will always be my little brother. You are such a good uncle and the girls love you so much! I can't wait to celebrate the big 2-6 with you this weekend. I love you!
