Triple Birthday Party

Yesterday night was my birthday party!  Along with my brother, Zach's, and my Uncle Aaron's.  So, technically, it was a triple birthday party.  Pretty sweet, huh?  ;)

We started out with cake.  Yum!  Mine was dark chocolate fudge with chocolate icing on top.  Yep.  Delicious!

Here's Zach blowing out his candles.  He did them one at a :P

My turn.  And, yes, I realize my hair is totally blocking my face.

That's why we took this photo!  Now you can see me.  Hehe ;)

So, then we decided, why not take a picture of all three of us with our cakes?
Such a show off. ;)

Aaron didn't want a cake.  (Party pooper, I know.)  So, my mom improvised and made him four little cupcakes.  We stuck all his candles in them.  Ha!

After that, we did presents.  And I must say, I got some pretty fabulous gifts you all.  They would include:
  • 4 new books that I've been wanting by 2 of my favorite authors.  :-D
  • money
  • clothes
  • a movie (The Christmas Hope)
  • Francesca Battistelli's new CD (Eep!)
  • some pretty hair clips
  • A photo collage that my ah-mazing sister made for me. :)
And then, when we were all done opening our presents, my daddy says he has a surprise for me.  So I shut my eyes, my brother treks out to the garage, and brings back this...

Isn't that lamp just totally gorgeous?  I'd been drooling over it through the shop window where my dad and brother work for months.  Then a few weeks ago I saw it was gone.  It had sold. :(  What I didn't realize was that it had sold to my parents! :D  Hehe! Awesome surprise!

We ended the night with a couple games of Taboo.

  {Not my photo.}
I heart this game!  It's so much fun!  Especially when you're playing it with my family. ;)  We laughed so hard!

Overall, I had a pretty amazing 17th birthday party.

My actual birthday is this coming Friday.  To celebrate here on my blog, I decided I'm gonna give it a make over.  Be looking out for a brand new design!  It should be up by Tuesday.  Can't wait to show you all!  My friend, Danielle, designed it and I love the way it turned out!

Good night, bloggy friends! :)
