A Surprise Party

We were invited to a surprise 50th birthday party for our friend, Janelle, last weekend.  Janelle and her husband, Tom, have six children and they totally surprised her.  Out of the six children, Hannah and Maggie are out of college, Luke and Dani are in college, Mary is in junior high and Nolan is in 4th Grade.  Plus, they have Even, a foreign exchange student from Norway currently living with them.  This great family lives just two blocks from us and I am the "bus driver" that gets them home from school every day.  Janelle does in-home daycare and takes everything in stride.
She walked in the house Saturday night from a day of shopping and was totally surprised to see a houseful of family and friends.  We enjoyed a Mexican feast of tacos, nachos, veggies, Mexican roll-ups, 7-layer dip, cake, etc.  And of course, there were margaritas and coronas to enjoy!
Janelle's true birthday isn't until February 4th, but it was a great celebration!

Take care,
