This post is way overdue!
AUGUST 19TH, AMANDA TURNED 17!!!!!!!!
Amanda's cake had a surprise inside, her cake was made by Elizabeth and Rebekah.
We Incorporated Amanda's 2 favorite colors blue and green into the birthday theme.
Amanda's theme was gems (for her beading) and flowers.
The birthday meal was....
Salsa, and dip
This is what Amanda saw when she walked in.
The picture on the table is Amanda's 17 birthday picture.
We placed beads all over the tree, and Amanda's green fairy on the top.
Amanda is now a lady, seventeen years have come and gone faster than I can believe.
Out of all our children Amanda loves her birthday more than any of them, and it's not because of presents. She starts talking about her birthday months before, and when her day arrives she is all a glow! I love to see the joy she gets from her birthday.
Elizabeth gave Amanda a quilt in a bag, Amanda had had her eye on it for some time. It's a great summertime throw or picnic quilt. Amanda placed it in her hope chest for later use.
Ruth Ella sitting with Amanda as she opened her gift, more beads for bracelets ;)
Finally, it was cake time! The cake surprise, it was 3 layers vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry...YUMMMMM
