Surprise Party

Hey Y'all,
Well it is 88 degrees here in Va. today so you know what that means...the A.C. is on already.
I hate to be
So in my effort to continue to catch up since I have been gone I wanted to share with ya what my family did.
I have told you before I have the best family! I love them all so very much!

On my Birthday Feb.24 were were told to be at my mom and dad's church for a special ceremony for my dad.
It was a Hoax!
Well when we got there we were blown away by a Surprise Birthday Party for my 40th  and Lee's 50th!

Joanne made the "Over the Hill" cake and cupcakes

Lee...well nuff

my other Leigh


My Aunt Bonnie Love her ...we are a lot alike :)

Shelby and Layden
See the vases on the table...Laura made those from photos of me and Lee over the years
LOVE THEM! We have them on a table in the living room now.

Jay, Joanne, Amanda and Shelby

My cousin Todd who is the most talented musician on the planet!

James looks thrilled lol

Colby loved the "walker"
All photo's except for the last one were taken by Colby :)
Thanks Squirt for taking the photos of our party.

 Y'all we had no idea they were planning a party.
All of the immediate family attended as well as our friend Danny and his wife Kathy.
There was a ton of food and every bit was delicious.
My sisters and mom know how to spread a table!
Beth was the one who organized everything and everyone had a part in it.
We felt so special and so loved.
It is a memory we will cherish forever.
I am blessed beyond what I deserve.
Thank You Lord for my family and friends.

  1. What a great surprise and such fun pictures of everyone! Stay cool!


  2. Happy Belated Birthday! 40 was my very favorite age. I hope it's a good year for you, too. Lots of fun things at your party. I love surprise parties, I'm glad they pulled it off!
    We're having bad storms here this evening and they're coming your way. Cool weather will follow.

  3. It's warm here - some days require the AC and the heat at night. Crazy weather. It's also been cooler than usual and rain. We've had wonderful rain! Praise the Lord!

    I think I said HBD before, but in case I did not: HaPpY BiRthDaY to Y'aLl!

    Looks like everyone, maybe except James, had a great time. ;)

    Take care -
