Mom's 50th Birthday

On Thursday October 23 we went out to eat for my mom's birthday. It was lots of fun! The whole object of going out to eat was to make her think that was her birthday get together... little did she know IT WASN'T! We had a whole days worth of things for her to do on Saturday.
My dad woke her up by giving her a clue which was breakfast. The whole day was a bunch of clues and activities for her to do. At one point in the day my dad took her to the place that he asked her to marry him. Isn't that cute?! Here they are all cute 28 years later. (i think)

Later that day she came home to find Jenni, David, Emily, and I posed to perform a medley from Annie Aloud. (a singing/dancing group all the kids were in when we were younger) Her reaction to this part of the day was priceless. We danced and sang our little hearts out. 
Next was a photo shoot with the nieces and nephew. Of course we had to sneak in and take a picture with the girls! 
After the photo shoot was dinner and back home for the SURPRISE party! And believe it or not, it did end up being a surprise. We watched a movie of her growing up and then ate food with friends and family. I love my mom so much! She has had such a huge impact on my life and so many others. I am grateful for her and the example she is for me. Maybe one day i'll get to be the amazing mother and gammie she is! Thanks mom! I love you!
