Tomorrow my stepdad will be 49. His birthday is August 5, and our wedding next summer is August 8...which doesn't leave much room for a 50th birthday party. So, my mom decided to throw him a surprise 49th birthday party!
She told him it was an engagement party for Jason and I so that he would help her get the house and yard straightened up. It was pretty funny...he was really into making sure that "our" party was great.
I even wrote a poem for the invitation:
Of this he is aware
And we wanted to surprise him
With all of you folks there.
But our daughter’s getting married
In August of next year
So a 49th birthday bash it is
With lots of food and beer!
So keep mum, don’t let it slip
On him we hope it doesn't dawn
We’ve told him it’s an engagement party
With hopes he’ll mow the lawn!
