Gift of Gab and Birthdays

Saturday was "Sea's" birthday. This is what we did for her. While she was celebrating at lunch with friends, we snuck over and put it in place. So that she would see it, we bought a bunch of balloons and tied little notes to each one. They said things like this way, keep coming, a little farther, almost there and we placed them in a trail that led her to her gift.
The funniest part was the little cards Lily made for her. On one she drew an owl and wrote, "You're the best hoot in the family." On another she drew a horse and wrote, "Neigh, you're a pretty one." The one that made me laugh the most was a swan that said, "You're the wan said the swan." Maybe I should put her in charge of quirky....actually, that should be.....very quirky sayings?

FABULOUS! I hope you don't mind if I steal this idea---it's just brilliant and who doesn't love balloons?

It was a fun way to celebrate and I know we surprised her. Every birthday should have at least one surprise in it.

Anne - of course! steal away!
