Look what I found!!!



Look what was laying on my couch when I got up this morning!! I know - it sounds like I was surprised but I wasn't. We have been planning this for a little while. Sometimes you never know what the Marine Corp is going to do when it comes to holidays and time off. Let's just say that last week on a particular day, I think I bought and cancelled three different airline tickets!!!
So - last night I was baking cookies like they would be his last meal. Dave decided that we didn't have enough Mt.Dew to make it through the next few days so he said that he was going to the store. Now....first, this was at 10:00 and as some of you know, we are usually in bed by then. Second, there was about 6 two-liters on the floor in the kitchen. This was simply not observed by my youngest child! When Dad left I insisted that she get to bed for she has to clean today and we will be up late tonight with the other girls getting home. I am sooooo mean I know!! David and his dad walked in the house shortly before midnight and we snuck him into her room. He leaned over, tapped her on the shoulder and she promptly went into shock!! It was so funny!!!! She cried and was so excited about seeing him. So it was sometime after midnight when we finally went to bed.
The funny thing is that he woke her up this morning at about 6:30 playing his trumpet which I don't think thrilled her much!! I would post a picture I took of her but then you all would be planning my funeral and the happy times would end!!
Now, if we can somehow just manage to surprise Carrie - we will be all good!!

I know you are thrilled to have David home for a few days. I have not met him yet but I am anxious to do so. Christa sure does think a lot of him! This comment is from Christa's Aunt Jan (Linda's sister).
