Okay - you've been waiting. We went to Mom and Dad's for Christmas dinner. About 12:30, Doug left to get the "surprise". When he returned, I called all of our children into the living room and in walks their Aunt Cheryl from Kansas. Sorry, I didn't catch the look on Sarah's face, but it was ultimate surprise. The children absolutely love their aunt. She doesn't get to visit us very often and never before at Christmas. She will be going with us to Odessa tomorrow.
I will not be able to post anything until we get back from our trip to Odessa so I'll probably be publishing a book when we return!
I hope everyone has a safe and happy New Year. And yes, we will most likely do fireworks so we'll try to be careful!
