Today I turned 17 years old.

Ok, so I don't officially turn 17 until 6:08 tonight, but still! ;)'s pretty crazy to me.  I can't believe another year has gone.

I was talking to my 3 year old cousin, Jace, a few days ago.

Me- "Guess what, Jace!  I'm going to be 17 in two days!  Do you think that's old?"
Jace- "Yeah."
Me- "Yeah, me too."
Jace- "How much is that?"
*holds up fingers*
Me- "It's all of your fingers plus 7 of mine.  See, one-two-three-four-five-six-seven-eight-nine-ten-eleven-twelve-thirteen-fourteen-fifteen-sixteen-seventeen."
Jace- "That's a long number."

Tehe ;-)  Love you, Jace Man! 

I said above I couldn't believe another year had gone.  But, you know what, a new year is here now.  16 was quite fabulous, if I do say so myself, and I hope and pray that 17 is just as great!


Now, I wanted share with you what I'm doing on my 17th day of birth (Ha!).  I woke up around 7:00 and went down stairs to a yummy birthday breakfast of fried eggs, hashbrowns, biscuits, and bacon that my mommy made for me.  We even had chocolate milk!  Yum!

I also received a few more pretty amazin' gifts:
  • New photo frames for my bed room.  Yay!
  • "Ramona & Beezus" movie.  I've already watched it this morning.  Hehe ;)
  • A new very pretty laundry hamper for my room.
  • Stationary for writing my pen pal with.
  • Some sweet scrapbooking paper.
Then, tonight I have Bible study with some of my totally wonderful girl friends.  I'm gonna bring some yummy cupcakes. ;)

After that, Kaela Jo, my BFFE is spending the night.  We have plans...we're gonna play apples-to-apples and kimps with my family.  Then stay up late(ish) watching "MegaMind" and "Ramona & Beezus" and making Polyvore sets.  Hehe!


Please bless me in this new year of life.
Thank you for choosing to love me and for working in my life.
Love you!

P.S. Sorry for the ridiculously long title.  Hehe ;)
P.P.S (Hehe, Emily Grace!) I can now post extra large photos!  Pretty sweet!

    Happy 17th Birthday! Now you can't sing the sixteen going on seventeen song...tear. But I'm sure 17 will be just as awesome--you could even make up your own song about 17 going on 18! =D

    Ramona & Beezus is hilarious!! We watched it on the long drive home from our grandparent's last Christmas. It kept us very entertained for an hour(or however long the movie is--I forget). =D

    Ohh, I look forward to seeing those polyvore sets that you two come up with. I'm sure they'll be awesome!


    P.S. Awesome! I noticed right away--about the large photos. Isn't it fun?! =D

  4. Happy, happy 17th birthday Katie!! I hope this next year is filled with many blessings from our LORD. =)
