Best Surprise EVER

This morning, I was having a really hard time getting out of bed.  I've been so tired, and other than the huge cramp I got in my calf at 4am, I had been sleeping quite well last night.  I didn't want to get up quite yet and face the day!

When I finally got up, I noticed a few things that were a little "off".

  1. The bathroom door wasn't propped open with the brick from Nauvoo (our door doesn't stay open unless you do.)
  2. A lamp in the living room was still on.
I ignored it and continued stumbling into my bathroom where I saw a note that said something like,

"Shannon, I have a surprise for you on the couch.  It's ME!  I can't wait to play with you this weekend!"

I ran into the living room, and who did I see?

My sister, Cherilyn!

Oh my goodness!

I cried.

My voice was very high-pitched.

I was so surprised!

I have the best family ever!  This week I've missed them so much.  I've wished they all lived closer.  The fact that David would let Cherilyn leave their 5 kids (one being sick) for a few days so she could come play with her little sister means so much to me!

I love you, Cherilyn!

This is a great surprise. Have fun with your sister. It would have been great to see you at the Rex Lee Run. I need to take a hint from Cherilyn and come visit you.

I cried when I read this, too... I love your family. :)

Just so you know...I totally called the blog post title. I knew it'd be called that before I even read it :)

I love being part of surprises!!

I'm logged in on Shannon's blog at school with her. (She is such a fun teacher. All of the kids love her.) What a fun surprise for both of us! I can't wait to PARTY all weekend long!
