My 17th Birthday!

My birthday was January 19th - I can't believe I've waited this long to post about it! It was a fabulous day - although it was very strange not having Deanna here to help celebrate. We made up for it though by having some friends over! My "theme" this year was "A Night At the Movies". Mom put up pictures of my favorite movie stars (you can see a few in the picture below - they all were Michael Landon, Desi Arnez, Lucille Ball, Kirk Cameron, Charleton Heston, John Wayne, Tom Hanks, Gregory Peck, Yul Brenner, Carey Grant, and Audrey Hepburn). Mom gave Nikki and I a quiz about my favorite movies and that night when I had my friends over, we watched "The Ghost and Mr. Chicken" starring Don Knotts. It was so much fun!

The concession stand

Lots of yummy snacks for during the movie

With my gifts

I got a birthday card from my favorite hockey player! As you can imagine, I was absolutely ecstatic! ;)

Playing 'Repeat Pete' with my friends - that's a really fun game!

I wish I had time to post some other pictures, but I have to go pack - Mom and I are flying out tomorrow to Kentucky to see Deanna! We are so excited! We were supposed to leave today, but our flight was canceled due to the blizzard hitting the Midwest/East Coast. So we are leaving tomorrow instead (if the weather cooperates!). We were joking about how we NEVER fly but the one time we were going to, it gets canceled! Crazy! I haven't flown in years, so I'm a bit nervous about it. We would appreciate prayers for us as we fly and for Deanna as she drives to Louisville to pick us up!
