A Big Surprise!

Christmas is over, but not for me!!! I get to celebrate for another week. My son that lives far away was going to be here late Monday night, and I was so excited because I have not seen them for four months. I have never been away from them that long. You can imagine how much I  was missing all of them.

We had Christmas eve here with my family, and then we took my Mom home on Christmas day and went to my Hubby’s family home.

We were all just about ready to eat when I went from the kitchen to the family room, and there stood my two Grandson’s with Mom and Dad right behind them, they said, “Surprise!!” I can not tell you how surprised I was. To be honest it was beyond surprised. My oldest Grandson said I looked like Macaulay Culkin in Home Alone. You know the scene where he puts both hands on his cheeks in complete surprise.

I cried, my husband cried, we were beyond excited and surprised!! I had my whole family together, and we had a wonderful meal at my Husband's Mom and Dads home!!

So If you don’t mind I will be enjoying my prolonged Christmas with my family for this week. Today we are going to have a Cousin day!! My little granddaughter is coming over to spend time with her cousins!!

Life is good and this Grammy/Mom, is one happy lady!!

Oh- Kathysue! I can't imagine a better gift than seeing family unexpectedly. Sometimes the ache in our heart for those that are missing is not fully realized until we see them in person. Blessings to your beautiful family. I hope you enjoy every single family moment, Macaulay! xo Diana

I know how you feel, Kathysue. My sons, daughter-in-law and grandson are visiting. I only get to see them twice a year now (except for Skype) so I am loving it. I know, like me, you will treasure every moment.
All the best...Victoria
