Dan and Sarah's Birthday

CLICK HERE to watch this scene on You Tube.

Dan was born on May 9th. His girlfriend was born on May 10th. They celebrated their double birthday at Dan's favorite restaurant, Halligan's Pub. A very special thanks to Joe Halligan and the entire staff who treat my brother with love and respect on a weekly basis.

Below is a composite made from the three birthday cards Dan made Sarah from scratch.

I'd also like to point out that Dan has never liked being called "Danny". Since we were young he has reacted rather negatively to those who try to call him anything other than "Dan". I can't blame him. I am the same way when someone assumes they can call me "Bill". With a last name like ours, it's only natural we take names and labels to heart. Dan, however, takes exception to this when it comes to girls. If he's trying to be endearing, like in all three cards he made for Sarah, he will sign "Danny". In the scene above, when Sarah reads "Love, Danny" she pauses and exclaims "Cute!" I guess he knows what he's doing.

Happy Birthday, Dan and Sarah! I just love these glimpses into his life. Sarah steals my heart too and I just love her! :) (I hope my son grows up to love his sister who has Down syndrome as much as you love your brother, Will!)

Thanks so much for sharing. Because of my chance to get to see Dan's life like this, I have started putting occasional videos of my son on my blog. I hope he grows up to be a gentleman like you, Dan!

Dear Dan and Will, I was shown your blog by someone who blogged about it. My son, who's name is Daniel, (nick named PJ) is 8 and a half months old.
I just wanted you to know you have a new reader, and I'm so glad you are blogging.

Halligans looks like it has a huge amount of variety on the menu. It all sounds pretty good too. I would've went with the Grilled Cajun Swordfish myself. Looks like yall had fun. I was reminded of that part in Goodfellas where he takes his girl out and he knows everyone and gets the best table and everything is on the house. Dan had it like that in Halligans! Happy B-day Dan and Sarah!
