What I've been doing. :)

So, for the last few months, we've been planning a super-secret surprise 60th birthday party! And last Saturday, it finally happened. We've been planning since the beginning of the year--BG insisted. It's eaten my entire August and September, but it was so worth it. People came together to let Mr. R know just how special a guy he is. His twin finally, finally came up from Georgia to spend their birthday together, probably the first time in nearly thirty years. His sister also came and that was a great surprise for him. I thought I'd blown it about a million times, but he never caught on, lol! Best day ever! :D

Ha! It was a miracle, considering how often I came close to blowing it, lol! I told him what went into the day, and he laughed his hindparts off. :D

How awesome! Especially that he has a twin to share the day with. What a great looking family. Best wishes for another good year for the both of them.

Hee, thank you so much!

Without BG, I'd have been lost! I was thrilled his brother actually left Georgia to be with his bro; he's such a non-traveling homebody! :D

Hah, thank you! :D

The shirt was a gift from my niece's beloved, who is Canadian.

I'll tell him you wished him a happy birthday! ♥

It was a beautiful cake--the bakery did a wonderful job, the people at the venue we chose were wonderful about us setting up and all and it was just really a *lot* of fun--and I really don't care for parties, even my own, lol!

It was great! He's still in awe today, he just couldn't get over it! Though how he ever thought we'd let his 60th go without notice...lol!

Thank you!! I *loved* the cake! Such a cute little infant he was! :D :D :D

They're a good bunch! That's the Mister smack in the middle and his cousins--Sis all in black standing next to him and his twin at the end on the left. It was a great day for him, it's been a loooong while since he's seen his siblings. :)

Well done on keeping that secret for so long, no wonder you've been so busy! Thanks for sharing the pics, you all look very happy and the cake is lovely. It was great that Mr R's twin made it to the party, too - was he in on the secret or was it a surprise for him too?

LOL! It was almost as bad as being a spy! And I learned spy is not in my skill set. :D

It was an amazing day, so much fun! Mr R's twin was in on it, too--but had no idea he was going to be included like he was. The unveiling of the cake was a hoot! :D

You must have been a stress mess. Secrets and parties and out of town guests, oh my! That would have done me in.

It sounds like it was a huge success and Mr. R had a wonderful day. Please wish him a belated Happy Birthday from me.

Oh girl...but really, it could have been worse. BG was like a general--she kept that stuff on point, and moved people like chess pieces, lol!

I will wish him a belated birthday wish from you! He's kind of loving all the attention, but the man deserves it. ;D
