Happy Birthday, Heather!!!

My baby turns 17 years old today. My how fast the time has gone! Seems just a few years ago that I held her as she was looking up at me with those huge beautiful eyes for the first time. And wow how we've filled the time since then!



We celebrated her birthday last night with dinner in San Antonio at the Magic Time Machine. It was a fun place for her! Movie characters were the wait staff. The hostess was dressed as some sort of animal and everyone was in character.







We didn't tell Heather her cousin Chris was home this week so she could be surprised when she saw him. He will be transferred to Arizona (Air Force) soon. This is Heather with Chris' wife Cil and Chris:





Heather with her buddy Ryan. They have been friends since 7th grade and we were so glad he was able to come with us to help celebrate her birthday. What a couple of cut-ups they were the whole evening!






The salad bar in the restaurant is a car:








Ryan's and Heather's talents extend even beyond their musical abilities in the high school band! It would appear Ryan is more talented than Heather in spoon balancing!







Napolean Dynamite was our waiter and here he fits Heather with a special birthday girl hat!








Another waiter Shaggy from Scooby Doo dropped by our table from time to time as well. Here he's just jumped through a window to come after my niece Cheyenne who's just shouted across the restaurant that something he said was lame.







Heather was brought a plate of cookies that made a lot of smoke. She was trying to figure out how they made it smoke so much.





Shaggy, Napolean Dynamite and Jack Sparrow all sat her in a chair and sang "You've Lost That Loving Feeling" to her. It was so funny!






Jack Sparrow singing to Heather.





Shaggy's dance was a little disturbing....











Our friends Reva and Mitch (also our pastor) joined us to celebrate as well.






Heather and her grandparents: Freddie, Heather, Granny (Billie) and Freddie's Mom, Jean.






Mitch began spitting lemon seeds through a straw at Heather.




Heather retaliated by spitting ice chips back at him!






Heather and Aunt Debbie.







As we were leaving Shaggy tried to steal Heather's gift.






On the way out the door Heather and Ryan found a booth with a peace sign window in it and wanted their picture taken peeking through the peace sign.












Happy Birthday Punkin'! What a fun way to celebrate!
