16th Birthday Celebration

Since I'll be gone for my birthday on July 5th, we celebrated a week early. Miriam Hart got to come, which was a lot of fun! Lydia made my favorite food, pasties, and my favorite cake, chocolate oatmeal. Yum! I'm so blessed!

Enjoying the food. Pasties is a family favorite!

Singing Happy Birthday

Showing off Lydia's handiwork. She worked really hard on the cake!

Sharing the gummy worms from Lydia. I got lots of nice gifts from my family, I'm so blessed!

    It looks like you had fun! Wow, one more week until you are 16! I still can't believe I only have 7 more months. Time goes by fast! The cake your sister made looks really pretty!

    Happy Sweet Sixteen!!!!! I hope you had an extremely blessed day now, and that you will later! The cake looks nice. What is chocolate oatmeal? I have never heard of that.

    Chocolate Oatmeal is just our name for the cake that is made out of oatmeal and cocoa, among other things. There's no such thing as chocolate oatmeal, at least from what I've heard! =)

    Yes Michele, Miriam's haircut is lovely! :-) hehe! The cake IS one of the best, I must say!

    Thanks for all the birthday wishes!

    I'll add another "Happy early birthday"! Your party looks like fun...and the menu sounds delicious. I know you're busy now, so it's fine if you can't...but would you mind possibly sharing your pasties and chocolate oatmeal cake recipes? Thank you so much! And I hope you have a wonderful week before you leave!

    What's so funny about Miriam L.'s hair? I don't get it.

    Nothing really... Michele cut it when she was here, and did a great job!
