Day of Birth


Yesterday we celebrated Daniels day of birth. Daniel isnt one who likes a whole lot of attention, so a few of his coworkers thought it would be funny to make his birthday a big deal. They got a huge sombrero with a "its my birthday" button and made him wear it. Boy did he love that. Then they had a little potluck, fiesta style, for lunch. They decorated and had party favors and the works. It was so very thoughtful of them, and even though Daniel wasnt too thrilled with the sombrero, he/we appreciated them helping make part of his work day much more entertaining than it otherwise would have been.
I unfortunately was chasing my kids around his office, so i didnt get pictures, and then at home when we celebrated with the kids, Ben was outta control so I didnt get any of that celebration either. Thats life i guess.
SO my youngest brother and his wife have been expecting their first baby, and Daniel and I thought it would be pretty cool if they ended up having her on Daniels birthday. In our extended "Hall" family we have several shared birthdays, Its bound to happen when there are about a zillion of us, but when we hadnt heard anything when we headed up to bed we just figured it wasnt gonna happen. And it didnt, but she was born in the wee hours of the morning, so we were very very excited to hear their good news. And chances are pretty good that we will be remembering her birthday every year.

Olivia missed Daniel's birthday by just 30 minutes. We said the same thing when we went to bed, that she had missed it, but were shocked when she called at 11:00 and said she thought she was in labor. It went super fast and was at the hospital just 17 minutes before she was born. So, they will each have their own day. Happy Birthday to a great guy! Sure love you Daniel.

Tell Daniel I said HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! I am glad his work made his day special. I tried to throw this huge surprise party for my husband's 30th with his work (b/c my husband is the same as yours with the attention thing) and he found out... so I cancelled it! I was SO mad! Anywho, I LOVE that you were reading your journals! That made me laugh! I think we are all psycho if we read what we wrote when we were that young!

Happy Birthday Daniel! Free Mexican food in exchange for wearing a sombrero is a pretty good deal. ;)
