Rose has such a tender heart and wanted to have our own celebration. John said she so dutifully planned all the party details. They wanted to go to the Dollar Tree to buy gifts. She wanted to make a special dessert. They wanted decorations. John was to take me out "on a date" so when we came home, they would surprise me.
First, John took them all to the Dollar Tree which was ridiculously fun. Then, they scurried in the house and up to their room to wrap my prizes. I acted very busy and unaware of all the fuss. We put the little ones to bed and John ushered me to Target. Finally, they got to work. They were all waiting in the window when we pulled up. I saw the lights go out and 400 little bodies scrambled past the window to hide. We walked in and heard "SURPRISE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" Of course, I acted completely shocked. My cheeks hurt from smiling and laughing.

|Rose's masterpiece of a Rice Krispie treat. Her siblings couldn't believe her talent to be able to shape it into a heart. They just were in awe of her rare gift.|
I will never forget them this day. They wanted me so bad to know I did a good job. I would have much rather attended this party than win $1000.00.
