What a blessing it was to celebrate my dad's 70th birthday with him, my family, and his friends on Saturday. My sisters and I threw him a surprise b-day party at a Chinese restaurant with 60 guests. One of my sisters went on the centerpieces and the other one worked on booking the restaurant and set up the itinerary for the afternoon. I bagged the party favors and embossed tags for them It was a bit more crazy than I thought it would be. To make a long story short I had to tie 70 bows on Friday since I accidentally forgot to put the third snack into the first 40 bags that finished at the beginning of the week. My fingers were sore when I finished. LOL! Here is a picture of one of the party favors.
We purchased 3 of my tags favorite snacks and ordered magnets with our family's picture on it and a Bible verse. Along with the party favors I put together scrapbook pages for the guests to write my dad a special message on.
Each of my sisters along with one of my BILs and my kids did tributes to honor my dad. I made him a book with my speech in it for him to keep. (God gave me the idea to use the letters in my dad's name to describe what I admire and appreciate about him.)
We had a 10 course meal
and a 3 layer Hawaiian cake.
Here is a picture of all of us at the party,
of my parents, my sisters, and I,
and of my hubby and I.
Now that my dad's party is done it's time for me to start my Valentine's Day projects. Before ending this post I wanted to wish all of you out there that celebrate Chinese New Year
This the annual picture that my "twin" and I take together on Chinese New Year. Thanks for stopping by!
