To celebrate his birthday, I declared last week BIRTHDAY WEEK! I had a different surprise/gift for him every day of the week. Some of the surprises had been in the works since SEPTEMBER! That's a long time to keep a secret!
Birthday week started last Monday. Each day his card/gift was in a different location.
Day 1's gift was a Reese's hear and an old edition of Prehistoric Life magazine.
Day 2 was a University of Alabama t-shirt.
|Day 3 was another magazine and a package of gummy worms.|
Day 4 was not pictured but was the third magazine.
Day 5 was one of his "big" gifts. So in the picture you just see the card and candy. Because I could not wrap his gift up in this case.
Back in September, I had an idea, you see. I was thinking about how it would be John's first birthday away from his family and his 30th. So, as part of his gift, I flew his mom up here as a surprise! I'll write more about this later, but let me just say - he was shocked!
|Day 6 was another Alabama t-shirt|
|Day 7 (his actual birthday) was a new television!|
Last night, as I was laying in bed completely exhausted, John and I were talking about how long I'd been planning, keeping secrets, etc. I said "Wow. I pretty much went from planning a wedding to planning a second reception to planning a surprise party. Now I can just stop."
And so I went to sleep.
