A little out of order, but it's appropriate right now. Earlier this year we were in California going to Disneyland and visiting friends! One of those very good friends is Ian's old school friend Lola! Knowing that we'd be around near Ian (and Alli's) birthday, she suggested a surprise birthday for them!

Happy Surprise Birthday Ian (and Alli)!
Lola's birthday was pretty recently, so we put together a couple presents for her as an excuse to make it over to her house.
Let's go surprise her!
But instead they got surprised! Lola, her sisters, and mom went all out with the decorating! It's a Minecraft themed party! The kids and Lola get online together a couple times a week to play Minecraft together!
They made the Minecraft birthday banner themselves!
It took a little while to sink in, but surprise Ian, this party is for you!
I love all the Minecraft decorations!
Thank you Lola!
There's presents too?
Some jammie onesies which came in very handy in chilly Colorado.
Ooh and Minecraft stuffies! A Panda (so cute) and an Ocelot!
And a very sweet note from Lola.
For Lola, her favorite animal is a turtle, so we got her a turtle stuffie. She also got a crystal necklace with a crystal we found earlier this year at the quartz crystal mine in Arkansas, plus a whole lot of candy.
For dinner, Angie put together a very tasty mexican food dinner. Everyone was stuffed.
Want to see Lola's room? Of course!
A Karaoke machine? Sing for us Ian!
Mmm, time for dessert! These are some tasty chocolate covered Oreos! I love the colors!
Cake time! Ian and Alli both love red velvet, so they picked up a cake from Nothing Bundt Cake. They are delicious!
