Happy Birthday, Kristen!

Kristen turns 34 on Tuesday, October 20th but we had her party today. It was a grand event attended by family and friends from her Casa home. The party is about the same every year: lots of food, dancing in the living room, a visit from Steve Erkel (Sean) and his friend, Stephan (also Sean), laughter, applause, and hugs all around. We wouldn't change it for the world!
Snow White on DVD...

...and Michael Jackson on CD!

Amy, Kristen, Janet and Sean (Amy and Janet are Casa staff; Sean calls Janet his "Homey")

Jerry, from Casa, helps Kristen make a caramel apple...

...but Andi needs no help making hers!

Ryan put 34 candles on Kristen's cake...

Erin, Sean and Kit (Sean calls Kit "my brother"). "Aunt Nancy" was in the crowd somewhere too.
Ghostly party favors...Mom found this idea in a magazine and shared it with me...just Tootsie Pops in the middle...easy and cute. Needless to say, a good time was had by all!
Happy Birthday, Kristen!
