party time

Jonathan's mother is one of those unfortunate souls with a birthday during Christmas week.  This year she will celebrate a milestone birthday and we wanted to give a surprise party in her honor.  We got the fellowship hall at her church reserved and talked with her Sunday School class about arranging their "Christmas party" for the same night.  We mailed invitations to about fifty or sixty families, ordered a cake, and with Jonathan's grandmother's help we got old pictures of her to display and made lots of finger foods for everyone to enjoy.

When she got to the church she knew by the amount of cars that something unusual was going on.  She was hesitant to go inside and once she did, I think she was pretty surprised that everyone was there for her, especially since her birthday is still a couple of weeks off.

There were a lot of people there and I'm pretty sure everyone had a good time. The kids were running around and the adults were eating and talking.

I don't think she was too upset that we pulled one over on her.  At least I hope not!

Happy birthday, Karen!
