We celebrated Loryn's birthday this week. I think if the decorations had been up to me I'd have made a more colorful choice, but for some reason, Kendall was put in charge.
So Loryn got deflated black, brown and gray balloons. And a festive sign (that Kendall obviously worked very hard at): "It is your birthday". You can't really see much of the trophy she was presented with, but it says "Fine Work Award".
If you're not a fanatical fan of "The Office" (like some in our workplace), I can tell you that the decorating ideas were borrowed from an episode where the guys in The Office were put in charge of party planning. What can I say? It wasn't pretty in Scranton and neither is it in Vernon, VT.
But Loryn did get a kick out of it and we had a productive day at Vermont Woods Studios in spite of the occasional clowning around.
Happy Birthday Loryn!
