Deathday Letter THE PARTY!

So yesterday was really special and awesome.  I've been getting tons of amazing pictures.  Keep sending your pictures of you (or your children) with the book for a chance to win a Pulse Prize Pack!

The best part of yesterday was the little party my mom and friends put together.  We went to a restaurant in Jupiter.  I nearly got into a fist fight with the valet company.  It was a great chance to chill out with my family and some friends and bask in the release of my first book.  But the best part was when they brought out my cake.

Okay, so I was expecting that someone would get a cake.  I figured it'd be one of those airbrush deals where the top looks like they photocopied an image onto the cake.  And that's what it was supposed to be too.  But the bakers at my local Publix (a grocery store for those not in the south) decided to go above and beyond.  They hand decorated this entire thing.  They went so far above and beyond that I can't even believe it.

And the best part of all:  It was filled with a layer of chocolate pudding.  If you've read the book, you'll get the significance.  If not, read it and you'll understand.

Anyway.  I have the best friends and family ever.  Thank you all for your support :)
