Surprise!!! It's NOT your birthday!!!

We were basically headed out the door around Chris' birthday in September. His birthday is on the 9th and we were leaving for Oklahoma on the 10th and Alaska on the 11th. His day got totally pushed aside for our vacation. He was fine with it, but I hated at least not giving him a birthday cake and celebrating his day. I had told him I'd make it up to him.

It had crossed my mind a few times that we didn't get a chance to do anything for it and finally when it hit me again on October 10th, Aleeyah and I devised a plan to have a birthday party for him...as a surprise. It was one of the rare times Chris had to work on a Saturday. He had said he was hoping to be home by 2pm. That gave us time to go to the store, decorate, and make cupcakes (with his favorite frosting). We rushed around the house trying to quickly put together a birthday party on a budget.

Aleeyah worked on the banner...


and helped me with the cupcakes...


and balloons...


We decorated the table...


And the kitchen area...


Everyone was in attendance...


But quickly got tired of waiting so they took a seat at the table...



Then we waited and waited and waited. We took a nap. Finally at 8:00pm, Dad was finally on his way home!

And he was super surprised when he got home!



Who wouldn't be if you were given a surprise party a MONTH after your birthday! Happy 31 babe (yet another month later! haha!)

Now Aleeyah has been throwing us random surprise parties here and there on a whim! Drawing banners and cards. Apparently, she likes the idea of surprise parties!

That's great! Love the guests that attended!

My girls love playing birthday party, too. For Kayleigh's birthday she got a wooden birthday cake set with candles and all. So they play birthday almost every day - yesterday it was my birthday (not really).
