Happy Day!

Ira Gershwin! To that I say strike up the band.

Happy birthday, Collin.

Collin, Happy Birthday!!

Did you have a slice of pie, as I instructed?

I had a slice of cheesecake. Does that count? They're both round...

Happy birthday! I'm right behind you on the 8th...

Happy 29th birthday, Collin. May you stay forever young.


Happy birthday, and here's to many more!

Happy Belated Birthday!

Well. We are all glad you were born, Collin -- and you are supposed to continue celebrating for a week, so my wishes for good times are still plenty fresh.

Happy belated bday.
