Surprise! (February 7th)

My sister, Aunt & I planned a surprise birthday party for my mom and we hosted it at our house Saturday the 7th. It was a great time. My Aunt and Uncle, who live in Ohio/Florida, flew in for the occasion. The best part was how we surprised mom with them! We started the day with my sister, niece and I decorating and preparing food. We were planning on about 25 people and we made Chicken Romano and with the help of Cindy & Sandy (thanks ladies!) we had some pasta and salad as well. By the afternoon we had Jason helping as well as my brother-in-law (who I must say, did some impressive decorating!) I told mom that we were having dinner for her birthday at my house Saturday night and top come over around 5:30pm. Everyone else arrived at 5:00 pm and of course we surprised her when she walked through the door! She had a feeling something was up but was a good sport about it all! Well, my Aunt and Uncle did not land in Denver until later that night and got to my house around 7:30pm (i think!) At that point mom thought all of the surprises were over and in walked Aunt Jeanine & Uncle Dick - it was fantastic. The look on mom's face was priceless! Then cam time to open presents which was yet another surprise. My sister, Aunt, our friend Sandy and Jason & I all pitched in and bought my mom a ticket to Florida for Spring Break! So we will all be headed down to the Sunshine State March 24th and we will stay with my Aunt and Uncle. We had a great time the rest of the evening and my Aunt & Uncle stayed through Thursday which was awesome.


My Aunt & Uncle just walked through the door!

A long over due hug!

Looks like everyone had a great time. I'm thinking of going to AL to surprise my dad for his 60th in 2 weeks. It all depends on my treatment schedule but I'd love to.
