"golden" birthday celebrations


on saturday we got together with our families to celebrate my birthday!  we had a party hosted by a family friend at her house and we ate, played games, relaxed, had cake, and opened gifts.

i made this hummingbird cake recipe for my birthday cake.  i went with a gold theme this year and treated this birthday as my "golden birthday."  your golden birthday is the one where you turn the age of your birth date, so my golden birthday would have been when i turned 6 on the 6th.  since i didn't know about golden birthdays back then, i decided that 33 would be my golden birthday because 3 + 3 = 6 . . . (close enough for me)!

after the party we came back to our house and i opened presents from my parents.  before bed, i opened presents from ryan and leko, and we capped off the night by curling up on the couch with leko to watch some tv.

Your party was so much fun. I learned about Golden Birthdays. All the food and cake was delicious.
