My Birthday Party!

Hello Friends!
It has been ages!
I know my birthday was three weeks ago but I still feel like it was yesterday. I think it is because it was the last thing that I did before I became so sick and time has just stopped for me. I still get so happy looking through these photos! It was a wonderful day.
I thought it was just going to be Mom, Dad, Haley and Mike (Haley's boyfriend) at my little party but my entire family and a couple of friends came! What a surprise! I had no idea it was going to be a full house!
My Mom and sister did a beautiful job decorating.
It was a very special day.

The Drink Station
We had delicious punch. I love punch! My Mom has started making a sangria punch (minus the alcohol) and it is fantastic! She cut up fruit and had it floating in the top of the punch jar. It was very pretty.



All of the flowers that she used were from our front yard.


Party Food! 
Everything is homemade except for the cupcakes. We love party foods! My Mom went above and beyond. Truly!
 


The food quickly disappeared!
This is one of my favorite photos from the day. I was trying to be "artsy" with my camera. I like how all the dishes are empty and the cupcakes catch your eye in the background. :)


My cupcakes. They were quite delicious!


Here I am in my new birthday outfit. I love my new polka-dot Gap scarf! I had these shoes too but they hated my feet and I couldn't walk in them! Fortunately, I just wore them in the house so I returned them ASAP!


My entire family!


And I always make everyone take a silly photo too! Because they are just fun! This is one has my two friends that came as well. Darrah (next to Patrick) and Beth (next to Haley).


It was a wonderful day! I can't say that enough!!
I can't wait to make a scrapbook page with all these great photos! I am really pleased with our family photo. I think it turned out really well.

I am glad that I could finally share these with you all!

Those shoes look cute. Too bad they bothered you. Birthday parties are nice. I'm glad you had a nice time.

I can't believe I am just now commenting on your birthday party! I've looked at this post several times, but for some reason never commented! :)
