a Birthday Baby



So happy to celebrate At's 23rd! He'd celebrated yesterday with friends, and today was our turn.

I woke up a 4 am, landed in MI around noon, napped in the car after Big A picked me up, cooked till 4 pm (biriyani and sides)  while Big A made the cupcakes (red velvet) and Nu made a birthday card (My Little Pony) and wrapped presents, and then... At was here!

No big presents this year, but we got him some pre-revolution short story collections (Chekov, Gorky, Gogol, and Tolstoy) and a small bookshelf Big A and I found for his growing library. 

Scout and Huck were delirious with happiness (and so were we).

Happy b-day to At. Noah turned 21 yesterday, their birthdays are very close. He'll be home in a week and a half so I have to wait a bit to see him and I'm a bit jealous.

Wow! Happy Birthday to Noah, StephLove!! 21 is huge, I'm glad you'll see him soon-ish. At turned 21 in 2020 and it actually felt a bit sad he had to spend it with just us. I'm glad Noah gets to be with friends.
