10 Things we LOVE about Chris Uda!

(aka Guy, Bro, Piggy)

From Naomi:

1. You are the BEST hot cocoa partner around. I love spending endless hours drinking hot chocolate out of a warm mug and just talking to you about any and everything! I suppose a lot of that is because you are an excellent conversationalist and an even better listener...but the chocolate isn't bad either.

2. You make me laugh...a LOT! You are so goofy, and even a little nerdy, now that you're an old man, and you remind me a lot of dad. Only, I think you might be a little more crazy and a tad more crass :) I love the way you can lighten the mood of ANY uncomfortable situation with your sense of humor. You are just a happy guy and I like it!

3. You are the ULTIMATE friend. No matter if it is to your siblings, your marine buddies, your fiance, or your coworkers, you are always there for people. You listen, you love unconditionally, you are accepting, you are loyal, you are dedicated, you are available, you go the extra mile to make people comfortable and happy, you understand people, you get along with all types of personalities, and you are just plain old fun to be around.

4. You showed me how to have Christlike love. When I was having a tough time making friends in high school, you taught me to recognize the fact that there is no way for me to know everything that is going on in people's lives or even to understand those things if I did. You taught me not to judge people for their lifestyles, choices, or personalities. You taught me how to be accepting and kind, to love unconditionally, and to get along with all types of people.

5. You are my big brother. No matter how far away you are, or what is going on in your life, I know you will always be there for me. You will protect me from the bad guys, you will give me the advice I need in the form that I need it, you will put me in my place, you will tease me to no end, and you will love me unconditionally. You will always be my big brother, and for that I am grateful. I love you Chris!

From Kevin:

6. Chris surprised Naomi on her birthday by calling her from across the world. She was in an exceptional mood and danced around the house for days!

7. He always makes funny comments on our blog that make me laugh.

8. He's a great example of working hard and sacrificing for something that you love.

9. It took 3 minutes after meeting Chris for the first time me to feel like we had been friends for ages.

10. Chris' girlish figure and perfectly unblemished visage gives me something to aspire to.

Smoke and mirrors...smoke and mirrors!

Hahaha, Nom and Kev, love you guys.

No matter how perfect or messed up things sometimes seem to be, no matter the challenges that life can throw our way, for the life achievements and milestones, there is always a lesson to learn and there is always someone who is in your corner, celebrating with you, from near or far, either telling you that you are right or that you are wrong. Being honest.

Someone saving a two packets of Swiss Miss with marshmallows, just in case life calls for hot cocoa time together.

Someone telling you that you'll get through it or that you're kicking butt, promising to be a shoulder or an ear, sharing their love and caring, or just sitting nearby secretly squeezing off moist packages of booty air, especially for you.

I hope that as my sister and brother you will always accept these things from me, especially that last one.

I may come off a little crass, I hope you know that I tone it down especially for you! hahaha!

I'm nowhere near perfect, but I know I'm your favorite brother, named Chris, who hasn't filed his federal taxes since 2008...**Does the IRS read Hanksville Headlines?

Love your brother!!
