The best gift ever!

So, we all wake up this morning, nothing to do, just sitting around. My sister had called to say she was coming over. So when she opens the door, Lagan is all excited and runs to her shouting "Didi!!!" hehe. Well, we started talking to her and she says..."I ordered you a Christmas present and it just got here, so I want to show you...", so mom and I look at each other confused, and walk to the front door with Brittany. She opens the door, and the BEST gift ever is there!
Scott, my mom's husband!

Now, let me give you some back story as to why this is the BEST gift ever! Scott is a truck driver, so we only see him for one week every six weeks when he is taking a break! So anytime he comes home, its great! Well, we were expecting him home for Christmas, but he didn't make it back because his company didn't give him the right time off. So, we thought he would be here next week....well, he surprised us all by coming home early! He had actually come into town last night and crashed at my sister's place and she brought him home this morning!

You should have seen the look on my mom's face when she saw him standing there in the entry, like she had just seen a ghost!

It was truly the BEST present ever this year, and we couldn't be more happy to have him here for the next few days! Thank you Jesus for sending him home! And thank you to all of our friends and family that prayed he would get here soon! :)

Welcome home Scott! We love you! :)
