What a SURPRISE!!! { My KT Girl is Home! }


Yesterday I had a SUPER SURPRISE and I can't wait to share it with all of you dear friends! . . .
it was about 4:30 pm and I was at work trying to get things finished up for the day. I looked up to see my husband Jim walking in and then behind him my daughter Katie and her friend Warrick!!! OMG, what a total knock me off my feet, take my breath away SURPRISE as I had absolutely NO idea she was coming home! Of course, Jim had known for two weeks, but they all thought it would be so neat to surprise me! Well, they did!!!!!!!

In case you don't know, Katie moved to Hawaii over a year ago and hadn't been home since. We were over there to visit her in January and we do keep in touch almost daily with email and cell phones, but still it's not like being together!! She's only here for the weekend, so we'll have to make the most of every minute. We've already planned a BBQ for tonight with some of her friends and think we'll make homemade ice cream.

She's still sleeping so I've got a minute to post this and then I better get busy! Looks like cardmaking will be on hold until next week, but I'll be back! Thanks for letting me share my excitement with all of you. Smiling in Nebraska..... Pam :)

p.s. the photo is of Katie, Jim and I at the North Shore of Oahu in January '07.

Quote for Today ~ (I may have posted this one already, but it's one of my favorites and SO appropriate for today.)
