That was what we yelled Sunday night when we had a surprise party for Tyler. Tyler turned 16 on Saturday and had a most uneventful day. What he didn’t know was that I was planning a surprise party for Sunday! If you only want to see the stamping related stuff go to page 2 of this post.
I have been asking Tyler for about a month if he wanted a party for his 16th birthday – yes, then no, then yes, then finally he said no. So Friday night we went out as a family to dinner, came home, opened presents and ate cake. Below you can see the card and the little gift I made him. Saturday, Greg was gone all day at a tennis/golf tournament, and I was in and out – shopping for the party, taking stuff to my friend, Gina’s house – and by the way – the Best Friend ever – how many people would let a bunch of teenagers that they don’t even know come and have a party at their house. Since it was a surprise I couldn’t have it at my house. So Saturday was a boring day for Tyler – except that he did get his birthday balloon and I made him breakfast in bed!
Sunday I quietly went to Gina’s house to help with final preparation and plan B since it turned out to be a rainy Sunday so all the outside entertainment was a bust. My one concern – was anybody coming to the party….. Just an FYI – not a good idea to put a 17 year old boy in charge of inviting other teenagers to a surprise party – first I didn’t know who ended up getting invited and second teenagers don’t RSVP – maybe they don’t know what that means…..But it all worked out and teenagers did appear at Gina’s door, some on time and some later. We were able to get Tyler up to Gina’s house without any clue and I think Tyler had a fun party and celebration for his 16th birthday. Later that night he told me that he really did want a surprise party – hmmm did I know that somehow ’cause I don’t remember him telling me that…
