SURPRISE!

We celebrated Alan's 29th birthday yesterday here at the house with a SURPRISE party! It was a blast. Alan had to leave around 4 to go hook up Jeff and Ashley's wireless internet for them. As soon as he left the house I called Ashley and she headed this way to help me set up. Joanne and Brian showed up around 4:30 to help too. Heather and Tim brought the sandwiches. THANKS for the help guys!! Then the other guests arrived around 5:30. Alan was due back any minute. We heard the garage door and like a bunch of fourth graders we turned out the lights and yelled SURPRISE when he walked in. He smiled and shook hands with the guys and we dug into some grub! The kids piled on my bed and watched Hannah Montana while the adults played a game of The Newlywed Game. Alan and I came back from scoring 0 points the first round to taking home the WIN in the end. We shared, laughed, prayed and celebrated! It was a wonderful time.

Alan, you can always "stay" 29 forever...haha. As I'm approaching 29, I'm considering not turning 30. Happy Birthday!

Al,
I seriously thought about your birthday this weekend. There are several birthdays that I can still remember from high school.

Sounds like y'all had a good time. Happy birthday!
