The Secret Life of a Teenager's Birthday Party

First...  there's cake.. . and lots of pizza... but I didn't get any pictures of the large amount of pizza we had...  that's okay though, b/c really, the key to a great birthday party is the cake (thanks to my Mom...  she made Christen a Purple Velvet Cake from scratch!)








And sometimes...  knives are involved...  don't worry...  no one was hurt...  but you do see the concern in Christen's face..


Cake fights  may or may not happen... 




Streamers may or may not explode in the living room...

And if the parents of the teenager are left alone with the streamers and dogs... 
well..... 
there's no telling what will happen 




Brandi was done and over it...  heading for the hills... 
She didn't want to end up like Beckham and consumed by the streamers...



17th Birthday party = Success...

These pictures are so HAPPY! I love it! (love the turquoise tablecloth, too. I have the same one!) You had such as sweet birthday post for Christen, too. I would love to have the same kind of relationship with my daughter when she is 17!

Great party photos! I just wanted to let you know that I really like your comment over at Surviving Motherhood about people thinking that Christians do not get depressed...that is such a pet peeve of mine and just like Karen I am on a mission to share my story so that it will help someone else.

smooches,
Larie
