The Surprise Party

Geez, it's about time I do a post about my birthday (after all, it's been 2 weeks now!) The day after Thanksgiving Nathan planned a SURPRISE PARTY for me. It was so much fun. Lots of friends and family were there. Thanks to everyone who came! And again, thank you Nathan for a fantastic night filled with dancing, musical chairs, and pool. Here are a few pics from the evening . . .
This is me being SURPRISED! (I'm actually pointing and saying, "Hey, that's not the Mayor". Nathan had told me we were going into the building to say hi to the Mayor. And no, he was not there.)All the adults played musical chairs. It was hilarious! The winner didn't have to speak in sacrament meeting for a year!! (A member of the bishopric was there) And wouldn't ya know, it was Celeste who won!!(She's married to the member of the bishopric - I think it was rigged!!)My grandparents came (this is my Dad's Dad) And also my Mom, Elijah and poor little Marlee. She was so sick the day before and still wasn't feeling up to partying that night. It's too bad, she would have had a blast with Abbi and Katie.
Here's Marlee and Nathan dancing. I wish I had a photo showing everyone dancing. There was a dance floor, and Nathan had strung colored lights all over the room. It was awesome! All the little kids loved it too!
Love the action shot of me blowing out my candles. I did get them all out in one blow! I have the strong lungs, Nathan does not.
And last but not least, the pool games. The night ended here. (with Sam getting hit in the head with the cue ball - it was sad, but amazing that the ball jumped the table like it did! Hope your head's all better Sam!!?)
It was a such a fun night. I'll never forget it. Thank you, thank you, thank you. What a great way to start my 30's!!
