Day 282, 2010

I was sleeping last night and I felt a tap on my shoulder.  I opened my eyes to see ALEX!  He surprised me by coming home for my birthday!  That little stinker.  I had been asking him to come home, but he has had a lot of exams and told me he had three exams next week to study for, and even went so far as to let me mail him a care package out on Friday.  Ashlea knew about him coming home.  I was surprised, those two have never been able to keep a secret!  LOL  Anyway... we all went out to breakfast this morning.  I was so excited I couldn't get my shower quick enough I wanted to run out and spend every minute with him.   After breakfast we went and bought him a new coat since he was wearing his high school letterman jacket last winter.  He got a very nice looking black peacoat.  He's not my little boy anymore, but a wonderful young man.  :)


  1. Oh, that last line made me cry. Off to give you a call. I sure wish I could spend your birthday with you sooooo badly!!

  2. Happy Birthday my friend... what a great picture. I am so glad he came home for your birthday. hugs

  3. Now that has to be the best birthday gift a kid can give his mom. Alex is one special young man. Im glad him and Ashlea could keep this secret. Hugs Lorrie and Happy Birthday tomorrow. :)

  4. That's the best BD present anyone could get. My tears are flowing just reading it.
