Birthday time.

Over the weekend my father in law had a surprise birthday party.
It was sweet and he was truly surprised!


Lots of his friends and family and co-workers showed up.


There was a candle or two lit. His favorite cake is pumkin sheet cake with double cream cheese frosting so that's what he got.


The Boy chipped his tooth at a playground right before the party.
We made a trip to the dentist over the weekend too and it's as good as new.


This sweet family was reunited after a seperation of over 2 years. (long story.)


There were balloons, of course.


My in-laws live in a church (I know!), so there is lots of room for games like ping pong and four square.




They also have a gumball machine.


I think The Baby ate (and swallowed) about 20 gumballs.


We had a good time!
Oh yeah, and today's my birthday.
No surprise party or four square planned, that I know of.
And that's okay.

Happy, Happy Birthday Beki! What a great month for a birthday (DH and I both have birthdays this month- on the same day!). I have to know about your in-laws and the church. I never knew! What church is it, if you don't mind telling? You can email me if you get the time.

I hope your day is wonderful and filled with all the things you love best!

Hugs,

Happy Bday!
I'm sure your pick would be more along the lines of a nice day at the spa, a relaxing shop for a new outfit and a dinner out! Oh, wait, maybe that's my pick... ! Enjoy!

Looks like a great party and how cool is that to live in a church with all that space for playing! That will make for an interesting story later. Hopefully your birthday is everything you want it to be! Many happy returns!!

Happy Birthday Father-in-law and Beki. The cake looked good, but...
I LOVED the vintage table it was on and the green chair the boy was sitting in........ YUM. Do you ever want to talk the folks out of some old furniture?
