With a Grateful Prayer and a Thankful Heart: Surprise!

Surprise!

Sitting at my computer last night, I heard children's voices on the porch and caught a glimpse of blond hair.
It was late but I thought it was Silas and that Jamie was stopping by.
I was delightfully shocked that Jill and the kids were here!
Brad and his dad drove to North Carolina, for a basketball coaches clinic hosted by North Carolina's coach and Duke's Coach K. Jill and the children drove in their car to our home.
Ryan, Brenna, Shaela and Raider
Of course, we had to brew a pot of tea to have with our oatmeal breakfast, because tea with cream and sugar cubes is a tradition at Mom-Mom's.
I loved the sweet note little Shaela left.

What a fun surprise for you and nice tradition with your grandchildren! Sugar cubes really add so much! I remember restaurants having sugar cubes wrapped in paper that would advertise the restaurant...when I was a kid. I think I used to collect them. Have a good weekend!

beautiful but Brenna's eyes are
amazing. Have a super time with
them!
