ALANNA FITZ-JENSEN'S 5th Birthday
September 2003


Alanna's parents, Amy & Jesper, invited everyone to celebrate one warm Sunday afternoon at their little hacienda in Santa Clara, California.


The lady in Pink is Alanna Fitz-Jensen, five years of age in 2003!

Meanwhile, Jesper (also known as Whisper) was busy preparing some vittles by the side of the house.

This is Whisper's new "toy," a double-barreled "barbecue."

Have a look inside:

Potatoes, naturally.  After all, Whisper is also known as 
Mister Potato-Head.
This is, apparently, a Danish condition.


And he had not just one, but TWO prime rib roasts on the rotisserie!  One for the crowd of guests, one for Amy (I'm guessing!).


Of course we had wine, but some of the guests preferred water.
Imagine that!


Amy's brother, Michael Fitzpatrick, Esquire and his Grandson!


Alanna and Julia, a neighbor from across the street.


Gaelen was thrilled upon learning there was a lot of food to be had!
And beer (for his Mom and Pop).


Alanna with her Sponge-Bob Birthday Hat.


Georgette is wondering "Where's my husband, for Pete's Sake?!?!"


Whisper's Grilled Garlic Bread...
They could probably smell this down in Gilroy!


A bunch of on-lookers all wonder if we're going to do the Hokey-Pokey.


We had a nice range of wines...La Gauphine Viognier was especially refreshing on such a warm day.  So was the La Canorgue Ros.  Blanco Nieva from Spain was a perfect aperitif in the summer heat.  We even cooled off a bottle of Vietti 1998 Barolo, a lighter vintage, but a lovely wine with the beef.


Keith & Petra's Little Guy.


A bunch of Birthday Cakes Suddenly Appeared!


Alanna got busy and blew out all the candles!


That's a Barbie Doll Cake in front of this young reveler!


We also sang "Happy Birthday" to Chelsea!


More Party Animals.


Whisper Got Busy and Cut the Cake.


Alanna's Little Brother Dane recently got a hair cut from his father, Whisper.  He seems to doubt the efficiency of his dad's abilities as a barber.


Meanwhile, speaking of haircuts, Alanna tried on a wig as her cousin Gaelen tried zapping some Martians who were attempting to crash the party.


Obviously, Alanna has a shoe fetish like her Mom, even at age 5.


Dane got a present from his Uncle Gerald, a musical top.

Well...I had to depart, but not before seeing The Fitz-Jensen's show off on a Harley!


"Eat your hearts out, Norbert & Gaby!" they said.
