The Great Surprise of 2009

Okay, I'm finally on facebook and am having a wave of competency so I am deciding to test out this blog thing. Kristin--yes you can thank yourself for having such a great and funny blog that I now think I can do it. So, this is the trial run--I have tons of friends and family outside of the PHX, ok--really outside the Surprise area who would love to see more pics of my kids and probably don't really care to read my ramblings, but ahh--I do love to ramble, so here goes.

Today I recieved an excellent surprise, one of the best surprises of my life, actually probably the 2nd best surprise EVER after my engagement of course. Mona Boo and Wendy (Rob's grandma and aunt) gathered my mother in-law (Lisa) and all of my sisters-in-law together and told us they are taking us all TO NYC FOR LISA'S BIRTHDAY IN OCTOBER!!! I DID NOT see that coming, but boy oh boy am I excited. Mostly because I would be ecstatic to go camping with no running water and an outhouse completely free of household and children responsibilities for 5 days---but NYC, oh--heavenly! So, in October I along with my sisters-in-law (who I consider some of my greatest friends), my MIL and Aunt and Gma in-law will all be off to New York--First Class all the way for 5 WHOLE DAYS. And, I guess now would also be a good time to note that normally I don't even travel airlines that have first class available.

So, I am happy and will sleep well on that thought!
