Birthday Shenanigans For Kat

Let Me First Introduce You to Jessie and Her Very Best Friend, Heather (in the Transformers Hat).

Next, Let me Now Introduce You to Joe C, A Fun-Loving, Free-For-All, Just-Turned 5-Yr Old Miniature Horse.

Mix All of The Above With An Air-Conditioned Modified Mini-Van in 90-100 Degree Weather on Kat's Birthday and We've Got Trouble Brewing. . . . .

Once They Arrived At My House (While I Was Conveniently Being Entertained By My Cousin, BeeBee, and A Big Stack of Pancakes A Mile Or So Down The Road) Joe C Got Himself Cleaned Up For The Big Surprise.

Everybody Was Busy Setting Up The Cake and Cupcakes and Presents While Joe C Watched The Door for My Arrival.

I Arrived and Needless To Say, I Was Very Surprised To See The Gang All In My Kitchen, Wearing Party Hats (Even Joe C). However, Jessie's Son, Briar, Didn't Seem Surprised At All With The Shenanigans. . . Let's See -- Cartoons versus Miniature Horse in The House versus Cartoons. . . .

. . . But The Joe C Cake Did Get Everyone's Attention. . .

. . . Along With Pippo-The-Hippo "Do These Cupcakes Make My Butt Look Big?" Cakes.

After Cake, We Went Outside So Joe C Could Relieve Himself. . . and While Outside, He Made New Friends With The Neighbors.

But Soon, It Was So Hot, We Took The Party Back Inside. . . .

Where Wyatt and Joe And Auntie Heather Played With The Swiveling Chair.

While Joe and Tom Talk About New TV Station Options. . . .

When It Came Time To Go, I Got The Birthday Pleasure Of Driving "Back Seat Driver Joe" Home Where He Enjoyed the Air Conditioning and Girl Talk Immensely, and Whinnied At a "Hay For Sale" Sign That We Passed On The Road Just In Case We Happened To Miss It.

It Was a Long Day of Entertaining, And Joe C Was Happy To Be Back Home Again. It Was a Huge Surprise To Me That Jessie Got Him Settled in His Makeshift Mini-Van "Stall" And That He Scored An A+ In Housebreaking. . . A Very Happy Birthday, Indeed!

Thank You So Much, Jessie, Heather, BeeBee, Briar, Wyatt, and Let's Not Forget Jessie's Patient Husband, Tom, for Participation In My Huge Surprise!! I Will Never, Ever Forget This Birthday (And Neither Will My Cousin) -- Thank You! -kat

  1. Sounds like you had a fun-filled day. What a great idea to have a horsey birthday surprise!
    I would have loved to see your face when you saw a horse "in the house". I'm still smirking.....
    Happy belated Birthday, Kat!

  2. OMG, Joe C is so cute! And I was going to ask if he left any "surprises" indoors, but I guess he is housebroken. Cool!

  3. Kathleen -- Yep, no surprises in the house! However, he did say goodbye to the neighbors, and while near their front door, left a parting gift. A definate good time had by all!

  4. And I thought my crazy aunt Frances was the only person that drove their mini horse around in a mini van! What a hoot!
    Glad you had such a wonderful birthday (and I LOVE the cakes:)

  5. Too cute! I am glad you had a happy birthday and what a memorable one, too! :o)

  6. Lol, that's really cute! Once when I was in high school, I actually RODE my full sized horse through my house on my birthday. Best birthday party EVER lol!
