Well he actually got one by me! Well actually two... ;)
So I get back from my splurge in Bali and Chris and I were talking about the upcoming "doomsday", where I turn the BIG 4. 0.! And I just happen to say to him that I really thought that my surprise for my birthday would have been that Chris would have flown my sister over to meet me and the ladies in Bali and then come to site with me. I also made the comment that if my parents just had sent come for Christmas that he maybe would have flown them over on my birthday, but who would want to make two trips like that in such a short time? Chris' answer to me was, "Yeah, that would have been a great idea... I wish I would have thought of it my self!" Cheeky little stinker!
So a week goes by and nothing happens... It's now the morning of the 28th... Saturday morning... I wake up to "Happy Birthday. Love you. I have to go do some work." Working on a Saturday is not unusual but the way he said it was like leave me alone, I don't want to talk to you. Again, nothing unusual when he has to get some work done... But I thought "What a BUTT!! It's my birthday!!!" But I didn't want to start a fight ON MY 40tTH BIRTHDAY!! So I left him a lone to get his "work" done.
The day went on then like any normal Saturday. Kids had soccer, went home, took an afternoon nap and then got ready for the party. Yes, that I did know about!
We are not at the party and everyone is taking pictures and I am kept busy with picture after picture...
after picture after picture... You get the point. My friend Danella even knows this and I am starting to get a little annoyed. NO MORE PICTURES!!!
And then a crowd walks toward me. (I am not paying attention at all. I just don't want ANYMORE PICTURES!!). And then it parts and my MOM is standing there!!
And I yelled something like "you did come!!" Not quite sure what I said... I know I was thinking what a pain in the a$$ to fly all that way again!! ;)
But my mommy came for my birthday!! Couldn't believe Chris pulled that off!! He is still quite proud of himself, as he should be. He also surprised me with another "chunk of coal". Sorry, I don't have a picture of that...
So everything now is starting to come together on why he was being a "patutty"aka pain in the butt that morning. Little did I know, he was communicating with a friend to go get my mom off the choppering the only way for him to do that was to be a "patutty" so I would ignore him!
Thanks honey! That was a great birthday surprise!
