~ Birthday Weekend...the Finale~


So, I had to find a way to throw a suprise party for the genius....Mister took her to Schlitterbaun water park Saturday morning to get her out of the house....my excuse to stay home was a real excuse as we had some work done on the house that day. It was kind of crazy around here so I didn't get hardly any pictures of the decor. I was BUSY getting things together. I had plates & cups, stashed in my trunk for days trying to keep this party a secret. Family & her boyfriend picked up the cake & food that we ordered earlier in the week and even put icing on the cupcakes...lol.

Boyfriend brought her these flowers...beautiful aren't they?



I made these yummy cupcakes....had help with the frosting and added the dollop of icing on top.


The colors were pink & green

She opened her goodies ( aren't those jeans terrible....that's what I get for throwing her a party after she was all water logged...lol. )

the genius & boyfriend

{ he is always here and apparently likes hanging out w/me & mister because they don't go anywhere alone....I know, I know... she's 18 but still.... }

We had lots of yummy food & lots of family over

My dad & us

We served sandwiches from Sam's ( the croissant ones...they were GREAT ) vegetable trays, crackers, cheese trays, dips, cake, ice cream, cupcakes, punch....we had tons of food.

Well, that's it! She said she had the best weekend of her life....so I guess we did good. :)

Oh, one more skydiving thing....I thought this sign was funny~ this is posted as you walk up to the airplane hanger.

Making this a surprise was sure to make it even more special for the Genius!! You are amazing. You take such love and care with everything you do. I also got a chuckle out of the sign about the parachutes landing! Too funny.
