I was surprised Saturday morning to find out that 2 of my sisters (Mel and Deb) were going to make it after all and with the help of one of the little one's friends, we were able to get a few last minute invites.
Mr. Funny and I had a few surprises in store, one being a bicycle that he really wanted.
The other surprise was the car.
We had found him a car a few weeks ago and after he drove it and we did some research, we decided it was the one so we told him that it had sold and even cruised around the dealership a few times looking around for another one he liked as much as that one.
We had the windows tinted and hid it at the back of the car lot til Friday evening when our dealer brought it home and parked it in his driveway (he lives in our subdivision)
He ordered a huge red ribbon from the florist to put on top and she was supposed to deliver it to his house (she actually lives in our subdivision as well) which she dropped off Friday afternoon.
Here is the text he (the car dealer) sent Mr. Funny on Saturday:
After running around like a maniac Friday and Saturday in the heat (even I was sweltering and I normally can never be too hot!) it all came together.
I met Mel and Deb for lunch as they pulled into town and forced them to go to the grocery store and to pick up the cakes and we got home, threw some decorations and food together and
HAD A PARTAY!!!!!!!!
|The bike was the only thing on his birthday want list|
|The party guests minus 1|

|sisters (no, there was no booze in Mel's cup |
|Dad sneaks upon the unsuspecting child..|
|This is his "I am really excited" expression. The boy is laid back.|
|This is his "man I wish I had gotten a Nissan 370z like I asked for but this car has 5 star test ratings and mom and dad are paranoid so I will be happy" face.|
|"Driving around the hood. Crazy mom with camera in backseat. Must find a place to dump her body soon".|
|Italy cake. Because I am cool.|
|This is a gun he drew last year. I brought in a grainy iPhone picture and threatened the sweet girl at DQ not to screw it up. (JK) The first words out of his mouth were, "she forgot the trigger clip".|
|"I hope I get my driver's license on the first try so I can drive away from this crazy farm!"|
|iTunes cards are a huge hit with the teens. He got 4 of them. He buys bad music with them Like Daft Punk.|
|I got him some athletic shorts, a Cards hat and a ball. For crying out loud the kid needed something nice for his birthday!|
|Mel loves cake. And Mr. Funny. But cake more. Thank God nobody got pics of me snarfing cake.|
|The big one was sad because Lady Gaga couldn't make it for the party. Mel and I were too.|
