A milestone birthday...

...deserves a milestone party. I wanted Matthew to have a great birthday party this year because, quite frankly, when you are the fifth of six children AND your birthday falls in the same month as two of your siblings, sometimes celebrations are not as elaborate as they might be. Matthew, bless his heart, has fallen through the cracks a time or two. It is his mother's fault.

Anyway, this year was different. We had a

Chocolate fountain...



Cheese fondue...

Birthday cheesecake...


Friends...




and games...

This one was Guesstures. See if you can figure out Bryce's word...

(fever)

Beth's word....

(lion - I know, it's really scary)

and Gary's word...
(steroids)


Everybody ate lots and had fun. It was an appropriately elaborate and exciting party for a sixteen year old. The ending was especially unique! No party of ours has ever ended quite like this one. And we'll just leave it at that! Happy birthday, once again, Matthew. Here's to a great year ahead.

You could combine those three photos and make up one terribly frightening malady.

Happy Birthday, Matthew!
