The Best Christmas Present Ever

That award this year goes to my sister and BIL, Rosie & Rob. As Rob tells it, Tuesday night before Christmas they had just gone into a deep sleep when he woke to footsteps in the hall...

Reuben? Didn't sound quite like him.

Rob Jr? What would he be doing at the house at 12:30 in the morning?

The door to their bedroom opened, and a sweet voice said, "Mama?"

HELEN CLARE!! What are YOU doing here?

Helen Clare and Adam flew in from London (yeah, that London -- as in England) to surprise them. A friend picked them up in Jackson and took them home. They are staying until the 9th....

Definitely the biggest surprise and the best Christmas present anyone in our family received this year. Though I think Lyn would be quick to point out that having Timothy home in Berlin from his freshman year at Covenant College in TN would run a real close second... Her torn Achilles tendon which has put her in a cast is decidedly on the bottom of the list.

Welcome home, Helen Clare!

I think having Helen Clare surprise you after 4 years of no Christmas rates just a smidge above having your son come back to Berlin for Christmas!! :) And yes, having a cast on my foot the entire vacation rates as number one on the list of "Christmas gifts I would dearly love to take back, but for which I can't find the stupid receipt . . ." At least I have a very loving and helpful husband!! My second worst Christmas present was having our dryer bite the dust last night . . . Oh well!
