Suprise for Sister

I really did mean to post party details for my sister's surprise party earlier, but just haven't gotten around to it.

The past month I've been planning a surprise 40th party for my middle sister, Lori. Her husband was the ring leader and I'm grateful for that. I've never planned a surprise party before - it's hard keeping secrets!

Lori was under the assumption she was having a birthday party for her 6 year old, Ryan, that day, so we didn't totally ambush her with a houseful of people! And the best part of the surprise was that our oldest sister, Lisa, and a good family friend, Suzanne, traveled here for the celebration. (In the photo: Lisa, me, Lori & Suzanne) Lori seemed quite surprised! And the party was fun!
My Dad & Cheryl (his long-time main squeeze) unleashed their creative genius and compiled old pictures of Lori and our family into a posterboard collage. It was really cool....and I just realized I didn't get a picture of it! Dang it!

And for the record, I hate surprises and never want a surprise party thrown for me! Got it?!

Enjoyed the post & picture, what a great time, Lori's reaction was perfect!!! I couldn't agree more, keeping secrets is hard, especially when you regularly talk to the person on a daily basis! lool

Everyone was awesome in all of this pulling together to make this happen, thanks for such a huge part that you played, Jen!

No surprise b-day party for you? Okay, got it!
