Well, I'd say the surprise actually worked!
What a fun evening celebrating Carolann's birthday!
I just have a few pictures from the evening, so here they are.
Connie and Mary Ann made this darling American Girls
nightgown for Carolann. It's something she's wanted for a long time.
Being that Mary Ann is one of the American Girl Queens,
(Marylu not able to be there on Tuesday)
this is a fitting gift, don't you think??!
Here's the three of them. Notice Mary Ann's skirt on the floor?
Reminiscent of an event that Carolann experienced awhile back. ;-)
And here's the dessert table.
Russian Cream and Chocolate Mousse Cake!

And Rachelle brought two Jakob's quilts to celebrate.
One a little smaller than the other, unplanned, but fine!
Beautiful colors, Rachelle.
What a lovely evening all around!
