My awesome, wonderful and lovely friend, Michelle (As seen with our traveling gnome, Wendell)had her birthday on 6-6-06.
She usually doesn't like a fuss, but this year we decided it MUST have a celebration with the obvious theme!
We decided we would take Chelle to Six places over the evening, with clues to figure out each one and a gift at every stop. We started off at my house for dinner.
She thought our usual group was just going to hang out...HA HA!
We surprised her by inviting her awesome hubby, JOHN, to the bash. She thought he was staying with the kiddies.
We also invited Chelle's very dear friend, and former college roommate, CRICKET and her husband, Matt up for the event.
I love Cricket.
Besides the fact that she is hilarious (Her name is Cricket, sister is Muffy, brother is Stosh and the dog's name was Charles.), she is also just a VERY nice person.
You would not believe the stuff she used to come up with to do...the Cricket stories are legendary. Probably one of my favorites is in college, she and Chelle had an accordion door between their living room and the kitchen. They cut a "Winger" poster and a "Nelson" poster and pasted them on the folds so you had a lovely view of 2 butt-rock bands, depending on where you were standing.
Brian, Karen and I had so much fun planning, shopping and executing this party. Karen found the BESTEST horns, ever (As modeled by Brian Joy in his Disney Goth shirt, and his sis, Sherry...the NICEST devil in existence. She would probably be concerned that Lucifer gets overheated in hell...:))
We had Tarot card readings (They were a blast)
We also had great food (Including Deviled Eggs...a MUST) and conversation.
Brian Joy finally got his horn grabbed in some fashion by my husband. He can die happy... :D
We are such a fun, happy group.
We took Michelle to the "Fun Park" to play a fierce game of Ski-Ball
Then there was the photo op in front of "The Omen" poster,
Happy, HAPPY birthday, Chelly. You rock my world!!!!!!! :)
