November 28


I have to tell you about our Thanksgiving surprise. This is our son Andy, who is in the Army. He told us he wouldn't be able to come for Thanksgiving as he is coming home for Christmas.
Imagine our surprise when the doorbell rang at 10 am and he was standing there!
He wanted to celebrate the holiday and my birthday.
It made my day!

Love it!! Belated Happy Birthday! I know it was special with a wonderful surprise like that. Several things we have in common . . . sons named Andy who are in the military, November birthdays, and of course, an interest in photography!

Charlie surprised his siblings last year at Thanksgiving. We knew he was coming, but they didn't. Such fun. Glad you got to see your boy.
