Yesterday we celebrated Brian’s 30th birthday with a party at our place! It was fun because this was the first time we’ve had a big group like this over to our new house.
Here are a few pictures so you can see what the party was like!
Brian, Silas and I enjoying the festivities!
Pasta salad and piggies-in-a-blanket! At the top of the pic is a little bowl of chili. We don’t have a pic of the pot of chili, but it was so yummy! We got the original recipe from my sister, Stephanie, in Arkansas. We ate it with Fritos, shredded cheese, and sour cream.
The pizza-looking thing is actually called “Party Surprise Spread.” It’s used for spreading on crackers or using taco chips to scoop it up with. It’s made of creamcheese, mayo, salsa, shredded cheese and red or green peppers.
Brian’s birthday cake with all 30 candles on it. The cake was made by my Mom and I, and I decorated it.
Contrary to some people’s predictions, the smoke detectors did not go off, nor did the fire department show up after Brian blew out the candles. It did get a little smokey though, and there was a heat wave rising from the cake before Brian blew them out. 🙂
Below is a video of us singing Happy Birthday to Brian:
People watching Brian open his presents. Closest to the camera, wearing a party hat on her head and on her face, we have Zoe, and from left to right we have Brenda, Brian’s Mom, Chrissy, Natie, Sis. Browning, Aunt Norma, Grandma, Brian’s Dad and Grandpa.
I think everyone is laughing at something Brian is saying. From left to right we have Joi, Angel, my Mom, Aunt Mechelle, Uncle Bobby, Kim (on the stairs), Sam, my Dad and Bro. Browning, and Grandma is laughing on the couch.
This is a t-shirt Brian got from Uncle Bobby and Aunt Mechelle!
Silas likes the cards that make noise when you open them.

Brian and Silas this morning. Silas let my parents sleep in his room, so he slept with us last night. Brian and Silas were so pooped out from the party yesterday that Silas slept an hour and a half longer than normal, and Brian ended up being late for work!
Overall, we had such a fun birthday party, and we are so glad that so many people could make it!
