After getting over the initial shock, it was great fun. The house and decorations looked lovely and there was an abundance of food and drink. The best part is that they actually took tons of family pictures. I haven't seen the pictures yet, but hope to do so later this week. Once I get them, I will post a few.
It's hard to put into words what a lovely thing it was that they did... even though if they'd asked us if we wanted a party, we'd probably have said no (maybe they knew this and that's why the surprise?). But non-the-less, we love them for taking the time from their busy lives to put this together. Although totally unexpected, it meant a great deal.
My daughter sent this collage she put together last night after they returned home to the Hill Country.
