Happy Birthday!

It was "Happy Birthday, Papa" as Dad Staude turned 54 this past Thursday. We celebrated by taking Mom and Dad out for dinner (marking Sydney's FIRST restaurant experience ~ which went exceedingly well) and then coming home to enjoy the bi-annual treat of Gret's German Chocolate Cake (which she only makes twice a year for her Dad's birthday and for Leon's birthday), watch a Disney flick (The Gameplan) and generallly just relax.

While it looks like Dad is about to eat the entire cake in one fell swoop; he is actually "phoofing" out his candles with Sydney's help (okay, so she is looking a little skeptical, but maybe the flames freaked her out! Although we didn't put NEARLY all of them on ~ only had 14 in the box, LOL!)
At any rate, "Happy Birthday, Dad!" We all love you!
