Surprise Visit!

On Christmas morning Mike and I slept in, if sleeping until 8:30 counts for sleeping in. With just us in the house and nowhere to be until noon, we took advantage of the situation. By 9:00 I was slowly warming up to Christmas day when the phone rang. I answered and it was Tabitha. I thought it was sweet of her to take time to call from Florida with all the Christmas morning activity going on at her home. Come to find out, she was not calling from Florida. She was calling from Atlanta airport because she and the kids were heading home to Kansas for a surprise Merry Christmas! "What? Are you serious!
You little sneak! What time should we pick you up?..." So Mike and I kicked it into gear and were able to get to the airport just in time to pick them up!


Tab, Marcail, Naomi and Henry (We are thankful that they could come. Thankful James could send them, but disappointed that he couldn't come too as he had to stay and continue work.) Then we headed straight to Hutchinson for our family Christmas. 

It was a great surprise to Grandma and Grandad and a beautiful reunion!


And a beautiful reunion for sisters! Tab is holding her niece, Lily.
