Semi-Surprise Birthday Party

Since Matt and I both turned 30 this year, I wanted to have him a surprise birthday party.  I thought this will be a breeze since typically Matt has been off on Fridays and he typically goes to the farm.  Well that is not how this typical Friday went for me.  Matt was insistent that I take my vehicle in to get it aligned which I didn't want to do since I was having to run errands to get ready for his party that night.  I could not tell him, so I bit the bullet and I took my vehicle in (this now means I have to pick it up by 5 PM that night).  At lunch time, Mom and I ran errands to pick up everything for the party and then I called Heather to see if she could take me to pick up my vehicle since I didn't want to leave the house empty just in case Matt came home.  

Matt's dad and brother were keeping him busy, but since he was off that day, he wanted to be home and do things around the house.  Jake finally called me around 3:30 and said that Matt was heading home.  I thought GREAT, what to do now.  I just let him walk in the house and see all of the hard work we did and he figured it all out.  At least it was a surprise to who is guests were going to be and what his treats were as well.

All in all we had a wonderful time with friends and family.  Matt was happy and I know he really appreciated everything I did and put into his party.  Thanks for everyone who came out, we could have any better friends and we appreciate each one of them so much!

  1. From Joy/ Devon Williams: Thank you so very much for posting our prayer need on your blog. I was one of the warriors for E.C. and was so grateful to hear that she is doing so well. Praise God! The pics testify to the mercy and faithfulness of our God.
    These horribly dificult weeks with chemo would have been totally unbearable without the grace of our Lord and the prayers of friends we have yet to meet. May the Lord continue to bless your family abundantly.
