Some pictures from the Sweet Sixteen party

Saturday, January 19th, 2008


Here are some of the guests and the guest of honor, Rebecca, at about 2a.m. this morning, ready to partake of the birthday cake.


This is a shot of the German Chocolate cake, prior to demolition.


One of Reb’s friends decorated this hat for her. The words say, “So my friends say I’m special.” Rebecca wore the hat all evening, even to the mall.

A great time was had by all, including this momma, who was the driver of a van full of incredibly talkative girls. It was fun. 🙂

Friday Haiku, early Saturday morning edition

Haiku Friday

Hello dear Friday Haiku friends,

It is 2:30a.m., the wee hours of Saturday, so I hope this Haiku still counts:

Today’s theme: birthday!

Dear Cadetie, Sweet Sixteen

Lots of fun tonight!

Honestly, I had the German Chocolate Cake baked, and thought I would have time to actually do this post on Friday, but . . . Rebecca and about ten of her girlfriends really wanted to go to the movies tonight. We got to the theater in plenty of time for the 7:15p.m. showing of 29 Dresses, but it was sold out. So . . . We occupied ourselves at the mall until the 10:15 showing. Suffice it to say that time elapsed, and the singing of “Happy Birthday to You”, the eating of cake and ice cream, and the opening of multitudes of presents didn’t happen until about 2a.m. I am barely conscious, but quite conscientious about posting, so here you have it. I’ll put up a photo of Reb’s cake, and maybe some of the jolly party attendees tomorrow.
