happy birthday daddy boy!

i invited a few of marc’s friends over and had him cook them dinner.  it goes without saying that if i loved him more, i would learn how to cook indian food myself.

still, he’s pretty impressive when he starts cooking six things at once.  the menu was fried masala potatoes, basmati rice, fried tindoras, spiced vegetable salad, okra sambar, tamarind rasam, papads with mint and tamarind chutneys, mango lassis and frybread.  and that was some good eating.

quite a few of marc’s friends from high school have collected in boise.  it’s nice to have them around.  (plus, they all have cute and darling wives who make cute and darling babies.  which makes everybody happy all around.)

below is marc with brian and brady, “his brothers by another mother.”  all three were born on the same day, in the same hospital, just down the hall from each other.  *and* all three are red haired, tall,  giant headed and ornery.   (you can ask their mothers.)

for his birthday marc got an ipod touch.  so a big thank you to violet, grandma, sister sarah, doug, megan, uncle reuben and the ottoscroms for going in on it.  daddy boy is loved for sure.  and last night he didn’t have to keep me up reading with the light on since he repined in the glowing light of his freshly downloaded esv.  and this morning the new, needy and expensive pet woke us up at 6:00 to the lovely sound of church bells.  so i think we can be friends.  even though i will probably now be in second place when vying for boy’s affections.  fortunately, i know how to take hostages.

    This was such a fun day! If I ever find out that Indian food was cooked and we didn’t receive an invite, I will be soooo sad. It was REALLY good and I look forward to the next feast.
