The Surprise!~Sunday Snapshot~ 11/365



Ni Hao Yall

About two months ago I sent out these...


At first I wasn't sure if I could pull it off. 
Don't get me wrong.  I wanted to do it...but I knew it was gonna be a lot of work.



and to be honest...
it wouldn't have happened without this lady...


The most important thing.  Was that he would be surprised.  I was so afraid someone....somewhere was going to "spill the beans.."

The girls were so excited for the big day.  They couldn't wait to see his face..


He was surprised.
We told him it was a surprise party for our niece who happened to graduate from High School the night before. 
I tend to plan what we do and where we go...and Ryan, well he tends to just be where I tell him to be when I tell him to be there...
It's kind of just easier that way...

So when he walked in the door...
and saw this...


He couldn't figure out why we were all so excited...
and then when everyone yelled surprise...
Well I think his expression says it all...


It was tons of fun and so worth all the work.
He so deserved a night like this...
A night with friends.
New and old...
and boy did we have fun...

catching up...





and dancing the night away...






and speeches from his daughters...

one that brought tears...


and one that brought laughter...


and spending time with family...

young...


and old...


It's always nice when we are all in one spot...


Our girls...
They danced hard...
and they crashed hard.

but we sure did have fun...
and when it's all said and done..
us girls...
we know...

He's working...
for us...
So it was super nice to have a night...
that was all about him...
Cause if anyone deserves to be celebrated...
it would be him...
Happy Birthday Honey!

I love you!
