A few Friday's ago our family threw a little surprise party for my Na-naw (Mama's mom). Paw-paw and Na-naw were coming by to drop off some tables and chairs we needed, so we decided to try and throw a mini birthday party! :) We asked Paw-paw what Na-naw's favorite color was, what her favorite ice cream was, etc.
I picked up the grocery items since I was already out, and everyone else prepared dinner and set the table beautifully.
We had Na-naw close her eyes until she walked into the kitchen and, voila, when she opened her eyes we said "Happy birthday!!" She was very happy and excited. :)

Dinner still wasn't for another hour or so, so Paw-paw finished painting one of our kitchen soffets (Mom had been using a paint brush for the wall, and Paw-paw took over with the roller :).
Hannah and Lydia colored some pictures...
...and Judah was his little cute self. :)
Meanwhile, the boys were trying to get a fire started so we could cook our hamburgers. We tried to use coals from our Central Boiler, instead of KingsFord briquettes. It worked!
You know my obsession for roses, so I really don't think this picture needs an explanation. :)
After dinner was ready a little later than planned, we sat down to eat!
We had hamburgers, au gratin potatoes, and green beans. It was all delicious!
Home-made seltzer was the drink of the night.

As we sat around the table after dinner, we brought over Na-naw's favorite cake (Ukrop's pound...amazing!) and ice cream (Turkey Hill All Natural Chocolate!) and sang Happy Birthday!
If you've never tasted a Ukrop's pound cake, you are severely deprived. They are beyond amazing!!
After the candles were all blown out we just sat around and enjoyed each others company. Family is a great thing!
