Just For the Joy of It

Good, True & Beautiful
Last week at our home we had a birthday!  Our middle son turned 16.  We tend to keep our birthday’s pretty simple, usually inviting our family over or going out to eat, but for the 16th, we did something a little more special.
Our neighbors graciously offered their home and game room to hold a surprise party. We invited several friends and had a wonderful time.  Of course since the party was next door, my son noticed a few things going on and caught on, but overall he was surprised at the turn out of friends and family!
Happy Birthday Josh:

  1. How fun!! I think home parties are the best or in your case next door parties. LOL!
    I guess for a boy it isn't Sweet 16 like it was for my daughter last year. LOL! Maybe more like Sah-weet 16! LOL!

  3. Oh man! 16th birthdays are the best! We keep ours low key also. I guess that's what makes these "special" birthdays so exciting. Happy birthday Sah-weet 16!
