    I spent it with my family, since it was christmas, and finally managed to talk my mom into letting me drink. She was so paranoid I would get drunk. Other than that, nothing. I never had exciting birthdays.

    My mom threw me a big party in the local VFW hall. I thought I was the coolest because she got me a DJ and everything. And yes, my friends and I performed the dance we made up to Britney, "Hit Me Baby One More Time." ps- It was luau themed!!

    Crap, I can't remember! I probably went out to Olive Garden with my family. Lame!

    I was at band camp over my 16th birthday.  I was in drill team.  It sucked.  On the last day, we were all gathered in the audtorium and my mom surprised me with a surprise  party!  My mom showed up with roses, a cake, a stuffed polar bear -- it was the sweetest thing.  I think that may have been my best bday every.  Having 80+ people sing happy birthday to you is quite overwhelming. :)

    aw, that sounds like a fun 16thnebb, your parents wouldn't let you have a glass of champage for your birthday even?

    My mom threw me a surprise party and my dad let me DRIVE TO THE STORE!!1!1!! to get the ice cream. My b-day is 2 days after Christmas, though, so none of my friends were in town. It was just my family. It was a good effort though.

    I invited some friends from school over and we rented a laserdisc player (anyone remember those, prior to VCRs?) and watched Gone With the Wind and, um.... Porky's, thanks to my little brother.Pretty low key. I think there were 6 people over.

    Is it bad that I can't remember? And I'm 24--it wasn't that long ago.

    Missy, that's some range.  Gone with the Wind to Porky's!  I haven't seen Porky's in a very long time.  The shower scene is the best ever! I'm cracking it up just thinking about it.

    My family isn't big on birthdays, so.. nothing. My parents got me a daybed because I always wanted one. Why? I have no idea. I guess I thought they were cool.

    Lazertag!! It was awesome.

    I dont believe there was anything like that, my family is pretty low key. If I remember correctly it was some of my aunts coolers I ended up drinking.

    All I can tell you is that I know it was the summer before I was a senior in high school. I don't remember any of the particulars... but then my family has never been good at birthdays. My birthdays have become infinitely better ever since FI entered my life.

    I had a pizza party for about 15 people in my garage.  Then there was a tornado so we had to go into the basement, and my best friend made out with the guy I liked in front of my mom.It sucked.

    My mom wanted to throw me a fancy Sweet Sixteen with a catered lunch, complete with response cards with menu choices. I remember picking the menu and thinking "I'm not ready for this." I convinced her to call it off and had about a dozen friends over for a sleepover party. Turns out most of my other friends did the same for their 16th birthdays.

    I had a sleepover with my 3 best friends.  I still keep in pretty regular contact with two of them, and one was one of my bridesmaids.

    Yeah, you can thank my 12-year old (at the time) brother for that one. I think we watched the first disc of GWTW (that was my grand plan), then he came in, and put Porky's in.  I was mortified.  That was when we were still in the - ummm, adversarial phase of our relationship...... :))) Translation: he did it to irritate me, I could've pounded him flat.We didn't finish GWTW. But, everyone loved Porky's. So, it was all good.

    My parents rented out my aunt's beach clubhouse for the day. I combined my 16th birthday party w/ my brother's 14th so we each had a group of friends there. We ended up having a massive water balloon fight, which was a lot of fun.

    I have absolutely no clue. I am coming up on the 10 anniversary of my 16th bday so maybe I'll make up for it then.At 16 I was still a good little girl. No "with whom"s for me :)

    I remember one of M's friends had a super big 16th birthday party for her. 100+ guests, black tie and allNot judging but IMO, totally inappropriate.
