My 17th Birthday

I turned 17 this past Wednesday, January 28th! I had a great birthday on Wednesday: Mom bought me breakfast, Dad took me to lunch, Lindsay had the entire cast of the play we're in {HSM2} sing to me, Mom made me a special dinner, Emily decorated the table for me, and I got a cake at youth group!! {Yes, I am extremely spoiled by my wonderful family and friends :) } Yesterday I had six friends over to eat and play games, it was so much fun! I can't believe I'm 17 already, I'll get my license soon {as in the next couple of weeks!!}, and next year I'll be an adult! How scary is that?? I am so thankful for my amazing family and friends who made my birthday extra-special!



On my actual birthday this is what the table looked like.









When I had my birthday party, mom made me my own little banana pudding, yummy!












The food at my party, makes me hungry just looking at it!











Friends eating on the floor in the den.














Lauren and Sloan











Jenna and Zac, the sweetest two people alive!

















My adopted brother, Daniel, and {part of} Zac.






I tried, with some success, to teach Daniel, Justin {my twin} , and Sloan, the cup game. {This is the only picture I have with Justin in it and it's blurry, uggh!}

Blowing out the candles, what a great party!
