Happy 27th Birthday Dan!


We thank God for you Dan! You are a delight to us. May God bless you with His mercy and grace all the days of your life. Sorry we aren’t with you this year to celebrate your day. Here are a few photos from some earlier years…


Your first Christmas just before you turned 1 with your big brother Josh at Gommy and PawPaw’s in Corona.


Your first birthday with all your cousins and friends, eating your birthday cake, in Huntington Beach.


Easter 1982 at Baba and Deda’s in La Mirada.


Ventura in 1985


Your 9th birthday in 1990 in Washington. The famous choo choo train cake. Jamie D., Gommy, Josh, Dad, Bridget, Dan , Katie, Jamie S. and Ryan.

We’re so thankful that the two of you brothers are such good friends. Two years apart, both born in January, both born on Friday. Praying that you always look out for each other and for your little sister!
Photobucket is holding all my photos I stored with them from 2007-2015 hostage. They have blacked out all those photos on my blog posts. OH BOTHER! I’m slowly cleaning up my posts.

  1. HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAN!!!! Great pictures Ellen, the Ventura one’s a classic. It’s been a joy to watch both your boys grow into such wonderful young men.

  2. Happy Birthday to Dan. Ellen, that first photo is great. If you put your hair on Dan and his facial hair on you, you would look like twins.
    This is a sweet tribute to him.

  3. Happy birthday to your son and blessings to your family. May God guide hima nd protect him and all of you.
    Your sons’ photos make Ralph Lauren ads look pale in comparison. And you too look so close together. Oh what am I saying (making the sign of the cross and spitting(!) three times in the air, as an odd Greek habit has it, to keep the evil eye away).
    Time flies by…Thank God. Our eldest daughter turns fourteen tomorrow. All three of our children and myself have our birthdays in December and January!
    Good day to you.

  4. Ellen what neat pictures! Happy Birthday to Dan! It’s been days since I’ve been able to visit all my favorite haunts….I am glad I had a few extra minutes today to scroll around and visit you!
    Have a great “rest of the week”!

  5. Yes Happy Birthday Dan. I do not know why you are on the homepage of WordPress as a featured blog, but whatever, it’s your freakin’ big day right? So HAPPY BIRTHDAY

  6. Happy Birthday to Dan! We have sweet memories of b-day parties with the Bayles boyz. What a handsome man he has become!

  7. Happy Birthday to your son! (same age as my son, this Saturday!) It looks like you have a great family.

    Willow, Our first-born Josh’s birthday is this Saturday, the nineteenth! He will be 29… Blessings on your son.

  8. Hi Ellen, Wishing a big “happy birthday” to Dan….I have a son-in-son name Dan…. I saw that you had called someone in your post Baba, this is what my grands call me.. It is the Japanese name for grandma… Thanks for your visit to my place…
