my husband’s fabulous idea…
Recently, to celebrate my birthday, my husband and kids surprised me with a little party. It was such a fun afternoon...just our little family. And they made it a day to remember! I walked in from a meeting (before they expected me) to find them scurrying to finish wrapping a couple of presents and putting the icing on the chocolate 9x13 cake that they had just baked. (it has to be chocolate!)
Then they sat me down, had me open a couple of presents, and then led me to the family room. My husband hung a giant cupcake pinata on the end of a broom handle, and handed me a baseball bat. We each got to take a whack at it. To my surprise, when it broke, spa like treats came tumbling out instead of candy! There were all kinds of little lotions, scrubs, shampoos, conditioners, scented hand sanitizers, toothpastes (!), and floating candles. The goal was to give me a spa treatment. It was a busy day, so we haven't had time for it yet, but I'm looking forward to it!
I thought it was such a cute idea. They picked up most of the "goods" in the sample sized section of Walmart. The funny thing was, they didn't know it, but I had had my eye on that cupcake pinata to use for a carnival themed activity with the young women at church in January. (New Beginnings) We hardly made a dent in it, so now I get to reuse it for our activity!
