Yesterday afternoon the front door opened. Nothing odd about that except all five of us were already inside. Creepy!
Except the person walking into the house wasn't a stranger, but the kidlets' uncle (hubby's brother) from NY. You should have heard the squeeing! Talk about a surprise. We knew he was going to be in town, but no plans had been made when we'd be seeing him. The kids were so excited. The last time we saw him was in June when we were back east.
Needless to say we had to do a quick shuffling of plans for our Tuesday evening so we could all go out to eat dinner together. Something that never happens on Tuesday due to dance and swimming. (Mackenna decided to skip her ballet class so she could spend time with her uncle and eat with us!) It was great to all be together. Rose wouldn't let go of him, even when she was eating. It was very sweet.
When we got home, the kidlets had great fun showing their uncle how Xbox works, including how they play games with their cousins who live a couple hours away. My brother-in-law slept in Rose's room on the bottom bunk. She and Beauty took the top one. Finn camped out on the floor.
A fun time for all!
Did you have any surprises in your life yesterday?
