Wendy's Surprise 40th Birthday Party
My lovely wife Wendy organized a great
40th birthday party for me
in July/2003. She turned 40 in December/2004. She was on
African Safari the first two
weeks of December with friend Nancy and some
elephants so I had to watch the kids. And then I got worldwide
attention for my christmas lights
... so things were a bit busy for me ... but the biggest accomplishment
was throwing a SURPRISE 40th birthday party for Wendy
with lots of assistance from Nancy who hosted it at her house.
Wendy has travelled all over the world, including all 7 continents, so
I figured a world theme was in order with food and wine from everywhere;
although wine from Antarctica wasn't available, so I substituted with ice.
The cake also had a world imprint as can be seen below ("coolest cake
we've done") and there was continuous slide show of Wendy's life on
the big screen, which (less than an hour after her arrival) included
pictures of her walking into the party surprised. She thought she was
going to a quiet book club gathering, but this was a lot better! ;-)

Wendy enjoyed her surprise 40th birthday party, and it was a
pleasure and an honor to put it together for her.
