One is never sure what to expect at our house.
I got home from a lunch meeting, and Kathleen promptly told Jennifer and I that the girls were planning a surprise party and that we needed to get ready. I asked who the surprise was for, and Kathleen responded “Well, that is the surprise. I can’t tell you that.”
We were told that mom needed to dress pretty and dad needed to dress hansom for the party. Then Kathleen and Lucy told us to stay in our room until they were ready.
When we were finally called downstairs for the party we found that the girls had set a table with Doritos, potato chips, dip, packaged peaches, Peanut M&Ms, and two unopened cans of olives. Kathleen announced that she and Lucy thought that we deserved an anniversary. So, we danced, sat down and ate chips, dip, peaches, and M&Ms (we decided that we didn’t really have to open the olives!), watched a Veggie Tales movie, and had a family hug.
Happy child-planned anniversary Jennifer!
