Casper’s Fourth Birthday

Sunday, June 7th, 2020

Who lives in a pineapple under the sea? We all do now. We tried to ask him what kind of party he wanted, all he would say is “pool party”. Spongebob is pretty easy to do too, there’s plenty of decorations for it out there already, and there’s a food tie in with Krabby Patties (or Chum Buckets). It’s much easier than if he would have said Troll Hunters, which he was obsessed with for about a month.

What has Casper been like lately, on the lead up to the big 4? Well, he’s full of farts, and doesn’t realize how nasty they are, so he just lets them out and keeps going on his day like it’s normal, like a sneeze. But he also likes to fart on people, so there’s that side of it.

He talks all the time, non-stop, please stop, dear god make it stop. We think it’s from Grammy keeping him when he was a baby, imprinting herself on him, she always had something to say.

He’s been practicing tricks on his scooter. Out of nowhere he busted out some sweet moves on us the other day. One legged, one legged superman, cross your leg and squat, no eyes, cross legged. Some serious stuff for a beginner.

There’s also the “why”. Anything you say to him gets a “why” in response. To the point where I don’t think it means what he thinks it means. He said “why” when I asked if he wanted candy. Good grief.

Happy Birthday Grandpa

Same place next year? It’s like a habit. But a good one. A very delicious, tasty, yummy, Casper actually eats, habit. It’s the habit no one wants to break because it’s so good. Casper calls it the fireman restaurant and wants to go there all the time. We make it at home and he gets disappointed that we don’t have a big fire and make a volcano out of onions. Which he’ll heat in fried rice by the way, onions and eggs, but at no other time. He will spit out onion or egg if you try to sneak it into any other kind of food.

I ask my dad where he wants to go or what he wants to do for his birthday, and so very often he says Nakato. Like a lot, it’s our go to spot in Atlanta for celebrating anything. And none of us care, it never gets old. We went there for Adam’s birthday too last year.

It’s Japanese steak house, but better because they give you noodles too. And they have tofu which most other ones don’t do for some reason. I don’t get why they are the only ones we’ve found doing noodles, it’s so easy and delicious.

Casper’s First Birthday

Saturday, June 3rd, 2017

Our little dude is a year old. He’s not talking yet, so we had to decide what kind of party to have for him. Dinosaurs! It’s one of those generic boy things, but it’s more than that because when he was born he would make Pterodactyl sounds, so it’s fitting.

I don’t think we’ve ever had so many people in this house at once before. It’s crazy, people like babies. I mean we like him too.

He still can’t talk in sentences, but he can say “bubbles”. He’s not potty trained yet, sadly. And he doesn’t know how to do any cool magic tricks yet. I mean he’s only one, but being the optomistic parent I am, I thought he might have some slick slight of hand moves by now. The fact that I don’t have any either may be a contributing factor.

Birthday Time – Number 25

Monday, April 12th, 2010


Friday was my 25th birthday and Lori planned an awesome party for me.  We went to Manuel’s for dinner, I didn’t know who was coming until they showed up, so I got really excited every time someone I knew walked by the window.   There was Adam, Wesley, Becky, Jessica, Ashton, Jessica, Marvin, Mike, Jenny, Catherine, Dustin, CB, Kristin, and Joy!  I didn’t think that many people would come for my birthday.


Then after dinner we went back to our place for drinks and cake and pin the tail on the donkey and a pinata!  I hope our neighbors don’t hate us already.  We did try to keep it down outside after midnight though, so they can’t hate too hard on a Friday night.  I fell asleep early as usual (right after they started playing Balderdash), probably 1oclock, but the last person didn’t leave until 230AM.  I consider that a pretty good bash.

Here are more pictures.  And Lori has plenty on her Facebook too.

Daniel’s Birthday

Friday, April 10th, 2009


It was my birthday on Thursday and Lori took me out after work.  It was awesome!  We went to Cafe Sunflower, a vegetarian restaurant in Buckhead.  The food was delicious and the atmosphere is better than you’d expect for a place in a strip mall kind of setting.  Lori had the veggie loaf [picture left] and I had the almond crusted tofu [picture right].


From there we went to Startime Entertainment for some video games and comedy at the Funny Farm.  The comedy was a bit more miss than hit, but it was fun just being out.  Oh yeah, and because it was my birthday I didn’t have to do an after hours phone switch for work, and got my boss to do it for me.


This is a picture of us chasing down an imaginary plane that’s trying to take off without us.

My Birfday!

It’s my birthday! For about eleven minutes anyways. And it’s been fun, awesome even. Lori gave me a sand bucket and a tofu cookbook and Evil Dead. Quite a few people sang me happy birthday. I got to bowl. Breakfast for breakfast, breakfast for lunch, breakfast for dinner. How lucky am I. Here are some more pictures.

And our buddy from Waffle House, Cee Cee, gave me cake and played a song for me on the jukebox.

All this to be topped off on Saturday with roller skating. Does it get any better? Probably not.
