A Fine Celebration

28 Jan

My precious daughter recently turned 18.  And to celebrate her and this important occasion her dad and I decided to have a little surprise party.  Well, it started out little.  But, in the end, we had quite a grand celebration – including close to 50 of the best friends and family one could hope for, a fabulous meal for all at a barbecue restaurant, root beer floats all around, personalized candy bars to serve as party favors, lots of decorations, fabulous entertainment, a t-shirt to serve as the guest book, an abundance of gifts, and A LOAD of fun.

And, let me tell you, my birthday girl was truly surprised.  Having to make all of the plans in secret, being careful about what we said and when, secret trips to the store, telephone calls made in a whisper, and sneaking into her Facebook account to figure out who to invite was a lot of work, but oh so worth it.  (And, truth be told, I might have even told a few little fibs along the way to pull it off.  Again, worth it!)

See for yourself . . .

Just a little surprised

The gang's all here

Many friends to greet

Great friends all around

A special day

A sweet for the sweet

Let's jump to celebrate!

So, to my family and friends who helped make this party a success, to those of you who helped with ideas, design and printing, photography and videography, entertainment, serving, directing the choir and serving as M.C. – THANK YOU!
