We pulled it off! She never suspected a thing.
As she looked around the room she kept screaming and screaming as she realized who all was there. This moment when she had to brace herself, was when she saw her sister-in-law Carol and nieces Brooke and Jessica who flew in from out of state!
Carol, Brooke & Jessica
Best friend DeeDee. Also from out of state.
She went around the room hugging everyone. And couldn't stop crying. "All the women I love in one room" was how she put it.
Another hug for Carol. Her coming meant the world.
"The BEST birthday surprise ever!"
A GIANT thank you to everyone who made the effort to be here for Mom! And thank you Grandma for letting us use your house. All the stress was worth the result.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM!
WE LOVE YOU!
