Surprise!

I've been absent from the computer world for the last 3 days for a very good reason. Becky surprised me by showing up at Wicked Friday night! Her birthday was yesterday, and my birthday is Saturday so we've been very busy celebrating.

And a little video. Yes, I was crying even though that is (thankfully) not too evident.

Four years ago Becky had just finished up chemo, and I flew to Tulsa to surprise her for her birthday so this is a little surreal. We've scrapped, shopped until we dropped, had make-overs in honor of her birthday and my new eyelashes and eyebrows, had photo shoots (both for clients and for our own family), been to the movies, baked a birthday cake, and much more.

Today we're headed to the hospital for chemo so the rest of her visit will probably be less eventful. Maybe I'll even have a chance to look at the hundreds of pictures waiting to be viewed and shared.

I'll be back sometime this week with a play by play of the weekend; probably more details than you care to know, but for now here is one of the pages I scrapped with Becky as we celebrated Digital Scrapbooking Day.

There is nothing better than sister time and it is even sweeter when it's unexpected. More than once I have been surprised by a visit from one of my sisters. I know how exciting it is to look over and see their beautiful faces. What a blessing. So glad you are having this wonderful time together.

I guess I really and I mean really take for granted having my sister live like 4 miles down the road. Can't imagine not seeing her almost everyday. I mean we have been together since like birth. LOL! The video made my eyes a little misty. So glad she got to fly in for a visit.
