In March, Nicole and I started to plan Juergen’s surprise 55th birthday party.  After months of planning and stretching the truth we managed to successfully surprise Juergen with an awesome party.  One thing that failed was the video recording the great surprise.  I had 3 of his oldest and dearest friends arrive early to surprise him. For months he believed we were planning a MOPS (mothers of preschoolers) party.  We had him carry tables and buy drinks, and many other tasks for the MOPS party.  But in the end he discovered it was all a cover for his party.  And we are so grateful for all the amazing people who came to make it a great evening.  We had a nice barbeque.  I fixed shih kebab for the first time.  And the guests brought salads and desserts.  The weather turned out to be beautiful.  Many of our friends brought their kids.  That made it nice for our kids.  The entire family had a good time with music and soccer, eating and talking.  I’m so grateful it worked out well, and that Juergen got a small glimpse at how really loved he is.   

The sound is not so good but here is the cup song.
