Surprise Party for Daddio's 60th!

So blogging more frequently than several times a week is a little harder than I thought it would be!! I have been so busy traveling for birthdays and Christmas the past two weeks, but I am finally back to Lexington for at least the next 2 or 3 weeks. I love traveling and seeing family, but sometimes it's just nice to be home and have NOTHING to do but lay around!

First, here's how I spent the weekend, LAST WEEKEND! (a little delayed, but better late than never!)

Had a Christmas party with some friends!!!

 My Oreo Cake Balls--Easy to make and sooooo yummy!
 Damn flash--Erin and Wes with our orange creamsicle shots!!
Lauren, Kathleen and I after a few too many glasses of wine and shots, ha

Then I headed up to Columbus for my Dad's Surprise 60th Birthday Party!!! Soo fun, and I am so glad my sisters and I were able to successfully throw him a surprise party!

Cute little invite i put together for the party:'s a surprise!

Jack told us
"No party...get me golf clubs instead!"
but when have we ever listened
to a thing that he's said.

So we decided to invite
those we hold dear
to help us celebrate
his 60th year!

While we waited for the birthday boy to arrive, I played with my cute little niece
 Love, love, love her!!!!! She makes me sooooo happy when I come home and she showers me with constant hugs and kisses!!!
 So I let her open her Christmas present early to pass time! She LOVES horses, so we got her a horse stable and some little horses to play with.
Then the birthday boy showed up!
 He was QUITE surprised..... He had NO IDEA I was even in Columbus!!!! When I gave him a hug I asked, "Dad, are you surprised?!" and he responded with, "Yes, and a little pissed!" HA! Oh well, it was worth it :)
 Taking a few shots with my sisters, aunt and our neighbors we've had since growing up!!!
 Dad's birthday cake! Love the old school pictures.
 Love seeing my dad smile :)
 My Aunt Peg and Daddio! I LOVEEEE this picture!

Dad and his girls!!! 
(My oldest sister, Wendy, middle sister, Karie, Dad, and me)
 Ben and I at the restaurant!
Dad's birthday gift-- a customized Maker's Mark bottle

It was a GREAT weekend at home and I am so happy the birthday party was a success.
