Surprise!

Posted by Dawn-Ann on September 28, 2008

I love, love, LOVE flowers and I brought a lot of them home last night

I am about to turn 50 in a week or so. I joke with my kids that I’m “wise” now. Well, in spite of my infinite wisdom, I somehow missed catching on to the fact that they were planning a surprise birthday party for me! I sure as heck hope that SOMEONE took good pictures for me to post here and on Facebook.

I was absolutely blown away by the party – the fabulous food, the great music and all the love from friends and family. Robb and Kim had arranged the music (including a fun “name that tune” game that hit all the Number One songs on each of my birthdays), catered food, hall rental, etc. My oldest son arranged for stunning floral centrepieces for the tables. Holly calmly looked me in the eye and LIED about where we were going. With a straight face. (She didn’t learn to lie from me!)

We danced. We sang. We hugged and kissed a LOT. We ate good food and then we all cleaned up afterward. It was truly a night to remember. I love my family!

Thanks kids. That will be a hard one to top!
