AND HERE WE GO!!
July 16, my sister Ann turned 40! At the beginning of the year, my mom, sister Diana and I were sitting around talking about birthdays this year and realized her big day was on a Saturday and immediately we began the mental preparations for a surprise bash. As we approached, we enlisted the help of her BFF, Ezabel and off we were in to preparation over a few months.
Here are a few pics that we put on suckers, which were used as centerpieces, taking us back in the day ;0
...looking like Jayce
...on the beach with Dad
good 'ol softball days!
with Mom & Lita
portrait of the sisters ;0
Sadly, I think this is one of our last 'family' shots we ever took...makes me want to make sure we always take them now!
in Mexico riding a donkey (I'm sure going from some one's house to someone elses)...and the 80's hairdo
And here's our invite that we sent out with one more cutie of a pic.
...eagerly waiting as we got the 'around the corner' text ;0
...and the entrance...
Emma's so good, she just got tossed around from person to person and was loving it!
bff-cousin Dago ;0 who I've learned is pretty private and doesn't go around people a lot...so pretty special of him to come!
our tired girl who did not have bath and bottle at 7 pm (considering the birthday girl arrived about 6:30). don't forget: she was NEVER a cuddly baby! She just started doing this about 3 months ago or so.
...getting a little cake fix ;0
the happy couple whose getting married 10/1! Pics of their wedding to come!
Isaiah...getting so big! Eating the sucker with wrapping ;0
and big-boy Jayce standing up on everything!
We've learned that a couple of people spilled partial beans as the day approached...but the when (time) and where remained a mystery. She was only about an hour and a half late to her party because she was not wanting to leave the beach, where she spent the first part of her day. All in all, she had a great day! Thanks to everyone that was able to make it!
