WHAT A SURPRISE!!!!!
Oh my gosh! I am turning 50 the end of this month, and my boys and husband planned a surprise 50th party for me today. I HAD NO IDEA! Nick said he had to work and left, Brandon said he had a class at the church and we went to church. We ran a few errands after church and came home to a house full! There were 37 people all together....they aren't all in this pic as some came later. As you can see......they all have black on and my 3 antiqueing girlfriends even wore vintage hats and furs..what a wonderful day we had. I can't believe it.......the boys got the whole house ready, tables set up, decorations and picked up the food and cake in an hour and half...they even had a list made....I taught them well! LOL!




As you can see........I was totally taken off guard..



Here I am with my crown and my cake.



my boys.......Brandon on the left and Nick on the right and my nephew Matthew.



My cousin Lauri, Aunt Kay and my mom Ann.




Opening up the fun cards and gifts.....my friends with their vintage hats and furs...




the fearsome foursome......
