Happy Birthday to my Little Drummer Boy . . . who's not so little anymore! =(
Today is my little brothers 21st Birthday. He lives in Nashville and is in a band and on the road a lot. Originally I wanted to throw him a big party to celebrate, but then he moved to Nashville right after Christmas so my party plans were knocked out. I didn't think he was going to be able to come home, but yesterday morning he called me and said he was going to come home for the day. I was so glad and even though he wouldn't get to be here on his birthday for a party, I could still do a little something for him and celebrate a day early. I was also glad because since my parents are so far away and not able to be with him on his b-day, I knew they would be happy that he was able to come home with me and let me do something for him.
Since I found out so fast that he was coming home, I had to throw something together quick. Luckily I was working from home yesterday so during a break I made him some cupcakes and had them ready by the time he got home. I asked him what he wanted for dinner and he really didn't have a specific request, so I came up with a birthday dinner for him. I did steak, homemade mashed potatoes, shrimp sauteed in garlic and butter, creamed spinach and then garlic cheese bread. It was mm mm good too! I kept joking around about how thankful Mike was that Casey came home because that way I really cooked a meal, ha ha!

After Dinner I made Case blow out some candles - always a birthday must! Then after he opened a couple cards and gifts from us, we all sat down and watched The Hangover. We had the best time and just laughed! I love that movie!!
(A 21st Birthday would not be complete with out his very own set of "beverage" mugs. ha ha - He said he was going to put them to good use with some ice cold Dr. Pepper . We'll see - if not I 'll be going to his pad and using them, for real! LOL)
Casey had to leave today, and I hated he wasn't able to stay longer. But his band has a show in KS and had to hit the road tonight. Life of a musician of course.
I love my lil bro so much and wish I could have thrown him a BIG 21st birthday party, but was glad he was able to come home, even if it was just for a night. I was just glad that I was able to do a little something for him and his 21st Birthday.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY CASEY!!!!
Your Big Sis LOVES you!!!
