The Best part of any Birthday

Ten Years Ago Today... was finally time for cake...

...and finally, my big brother TJ is here.

C'mon TJ, it is time to put the candles on my cake!!!

Everybody loved this cake. It matched the invitations. Most important it said "Thank you" to everyone who was here because they all had some part in helping me get to TEN years.

TJ was in charge of the candles and the matches. He is very responsible and always good with that kind of assignment. That's his friend Josh eating pizza. He came with his sister Heather who is my friend.

OK ready...Happy Birthday to you, happy birthday to you, Happy Birthday to SARAH, happy birthday to you.

That took a lot of air to get all those candles out. My friends were very patient.

Especially my little brother Matt. That's because he fell asleep in Grandpa's arms. I think that was the best birthday ever.
