Eric's 21st Birthday


For months, years, perhaps, Eric has been talking about all the cool stuff he was going to do on his birthday. As it happened, Jane was in town and ill, and we spent most of the day with her. But my mother and I had consipired in advance enough to think to get him a cake.

We finally got all 21 candles on top.

Now to light them.

Wait, let's pet Willow first.

Ok, there we are.

Get ready to sing.

He's so excited.

Nala and the beloved shorts.


With hand painted wrapping paper! Clearly made by someone very skilled and thoughtful.

It's the Jem and the Holograms DVD! Too bad no one in this house has a (working) DVD player. Ok, so maybe not thoughtful.
