My 16th Birthday!
I had so many pictures I wanted to use I couldn't actually show them all, so if a word is underlined , click on it for a picture. I had a wonderful birthday! The first thing that happened was that when I came into the kitchen, there was a surprise for me on the table! My dad had done it. Nothing really happened until lunch, when we went to IHOP. That's where we always go for my birthday. They bring you a big ice cream sundae, and usually they sing, but we went at 2, so there weren't enough people. That was fine by me! We had a really nice lunch. After we ate, we ran by PetSmart, because we needed to replace a few of our fish. We named the new ones Hoobie (LONG story!) and Tiger. After we got home, I got ready for youth group. (at church) Youth group was great! I had a good time with everyone. The lesson was about Christmas, which was perfect for me! I love Christmas. Once I got home, I opened my presents. I got some money from my grandparents on one side, and my aunts and uncles. I'd already decided I'm going to use my birthday money for my next hobby, quilting. I can't wait to get started! The first thing I opened was a video we had had years ago, when I was in preschool. We had given it away, and I really wanted it back! Mom had found it at a thrift store! I knew it was a video from the shape of the box, but that was the last thing I was expecting! I watched it this morning, and it sure brought back memories. The next thing I opened was the first season of The Waltons. I've never seen it, but I think I'll like it! Then I got some beads (the new ones are surrounded by bright blue rectangles) from my grandparents. They are all so pretty! Then I opened the one mom told me to open next to last. It was a memory card! Sure enough, the next thing I opened was a digital camera! I had really wanted one, but I never actually thought I'd get one! I love it! I can't wait to use it. I told my mom, "Well, it's not a car, but I guess it'll do. (Of course, I was just kidding, I don't have a clue how to drive!) :o) Kirby enjoyed my birthday almost as much as I did! He loves nothing more than shredding paper. Well, after all is said and done, I'd have to say that yesterday was one of the best birthdays I've ever had.
