Scott's Birthday

I DID IT! I finally pulled off a surprise party for Scott. He ALWAYS figures it out, but not this year. He had no idea that new friends and old were coming to celebrate his birthday. We did a white elephant gift exchange, which always seems a little more fun with the right beverage. Troy and Corinne brought Natural Ice beer as their white elephant gift, and people actually drank it! Here is a picture of Chris modeling his gift. There were some great ideas given for all the fun ways it could be used. Even still, that ridiculous pumpkin got left at our house! One of my favorite gifts was the Christmas '94 framed picture of our college buddy, Cody Earl. Here is a before and after for all our DCC friends to enjoy. This is so crazy-hilarious. We love ya, Cody!!!

We had such a good time. Scott and I have talked about it every day. He was so surprised and honored that everyone came. Can't wait to do it again!

Happy Birthday Scott!
Well, what's funny is that I haven't seen Cody in like 10 years, so that's how I remember him! That's really him in the second picture?? What happened to his hair? Great job on the surprise party! Sounds like fun!

Oh my goodness. Cody...the years have been...well...kind to you. I remember the days at DCC and all of my run-ins, papers, projects, and teamwork with who we called "Cody the dam Moore". Pronounced moo-r. Anyway, good to see you guys. Happy Birthday Scott! Keep in touch, friends. You can get my e-mail addy off of the church web site at www.oakwoodchristianchurch.org and you can also check out our church, youth ministry, and even the staff bios. (You know I work with Frisbie) Merry Christmas!!!

So sad I couldn't make it. I had to work. Sounds like it was a blast, though. And happy birthday, Scott!
