Happy Birthday, John!

February 22, 2008

Journal, Lauren

Nifty Fifty!

My friend Kate planned a surprise 50th birthday party for her husband, John. He is an avid hunter, so the theme was ‘camouflage’, a very difficult word to spell. Everyone came in the appropriate gear, and looked smashing. Kate made a wispy camouflage-coat/caftan thing that was stunning, but any picture I took had a blurry coat and still face, or a still coat and blurry face, so here’s just the awesome, twirly coat:

Like project runway!

While we were waiting for them to show up, we found ways to amuse ourselves. Annette and I took prom pictures together, by the deer:Who's the dork on the left?

“What is Lauren wearing?” you ask? Well, I’m not so fond of hunting, so I came as……

Slaying high prices with my coupons of steel!

Lloyd had an outfit, too. This marks the first (and only) time that I have sewn a necktie. He wore the whole outfit to school today, and it was pretty funny. The kids would ask, “Why are you wearing camouflage?” He’d answer, “You can see me?”

Why does she make me do this stuff?

    What’re all the pictures of? I don’t see anybody. Ha!

    That is an excellent tie. I’m sure no bucks were harmed in the sewing of that tie; in fact, you probably saved a few! Now let’s see you sew those with your preschoolers!

    That “dork on the left” is my date. Gorsh, I’ll never go to prom again.

    I mostly amazed that Lloyd, Lauren and Annette all have camo pants. How can that be?
