Best News EVER!!

here's the story..
* my favorite sister (Holly) and her awesome hubby (CT) sent me a birthday package.
* it was going to be late. (not a problem! i never expected a gift to start with!)
* i have specific instructions from CT to CALL when the package arrives and open it while on the phone with them. (ok. no biggie.)
* i forget (of course) and think about it no more.
* Saturday arrives. Package arrives. Package sits on my counter. For a few hours. (no hurry)
* i decide to call and open it (children are all occupied.. this is my moment of opportunity!)
* i call. they answer. we talk. (and laugh) i start opening the package.
* first take out a card (no pic. (i forgot. of course) super cute of a pug that looks just like their Oddis.. singing.. I'm sorry. (for belated package)
* next i take out a tshirt. CT says.. ok read the shirt.. i do.
*this is what it says... oh very nice..
THIS IS WHAT THE BACK SAYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OMG!!!!!!!!


(ok...insert SCREAMING and CRYING)

for about 5 minutes.

yep. i NEVER saw it coming.

I have been waiting for this news my whole life.

Congratulations! How exciting!

My DD did something very similar 2 years ago. She and her hubby and 1 1/2 yr. old daughter came over for Christmas dinner. We opened gifts and the whole while my granddaughter Sierra was wearing a sweater over her T-shirt. Just as we were sitting down for dinner; my DD took off Sierra's sweater and her T-shirt read: "I'm a big sister!" I got the connection right away but it took a while for it to sink into my hubby's head and my son's head. Baby sister Brooke arrived on 07/07/07 and the 2 girls give us so much joy.
