Cake:
It is a compilation of Paul's most oft-used phrases. (except for the "Happy 17th Birthday Paul")

When I finished the cake and showed it to him, he looked at it for a second, then said, "Which way does it go?"

Then after handing him the candles to put in the cake, I said, "Here are the matches." And he said, "What?" And I laughed.

Kinda stupid, I know, but seriously, he says, "What?" and "huh?" ALL. THE. TIME.
He's dressed up to go to the afore-mentioned dance in his new shirt and tie.

Senior pictures: next Friday.

And he looks very handsome. Can't imagine that he is 17. It just seems wrong. (Hayley in high school is wronger.) So happy day to Paul. I like the comment about which way the cake goes. You should have turned it around for him, just to throw him off.

Happy Birthday, AulPay! The cake is perfect for him as I am a witness to his what-ness. He does look quite handsome in my favorite color. Have fun at the dance and happy birthday again.
