Let's be honest. It's a little lame having a big birthday on a holiday - in my case, Thanksgiving, a day that revolves around preparing and eating a gigantic (albeit tasty) meal.

But something happened tonight that made next week's birthday extra special.

Our long-time friends Carrie and Steve Christensen (and their three boys) drove across the country from Denver and showed up at my front door tonight. I had NO IDEA they were coming. I heard the doorbell ring, peeked through the window of the front door and was so stunned to see them standing on our front steps.

Oh my gosh. Surprises are the best. Seeing them totally made me cry. I am overwhelmed that they really drove all this way, took time off from work, school, etc. They'll be in town for a week visiting us and other friends. It's going to be so fun!!

I love the part where you open the door as you are JUMPING up and down! A lot of credit goes to Khania for keeping the secret so long!

You haven't blogged in forever. Spending too much time working on Christmas gifts late at night, huh? I hope you had a wonderful birthday, and am excited to hear about it, and your Thanksgiving.
