Look who appeared in my bedroom at 2:30 this morning...
Savannah completely surprised us with a quick trip home for the weekend! We had no idea she was coming! I looked into plane tickets earlier this week just wishing she could be here to see Spencer in Shrek. Unbeknownst to me, by then she already had her ticket and was planning the surprise. Her friend, Carly, picked her up from the airport 2 1/2 hours away and dropped her off at our house in the middle of the night. Savannah woke up Sadie first and then the two of them came in our room to surprise us. We stayed up talking for way too long and didn't get much sleep, but oh, what a fun surprise!!
It was so cute when I woke up the boys this morning. Soren sat up and said, "Do you want to know the bad news? I had a horrible dream last night." I asked him to tell me about it. He simply said, "Sam. And Savannah."
"What about them?"
"They were home."
"Aw, buddy, soon. They'll be home soon." And then he went downstairs and saw Savannah standing in the kitchen. No fanfare, no hype. He just quietly walked over and gave her a huge hug.
Spencer cried out, "You came!" and swallowed her up in a hug. (He's a lot taller than her now.)
Sterling cried. And then Savannah cried. It was very sweet.
Savannah's planning to attend both Shrek performances today. (The first two performances have SOLD OUT!!! It's SO good!!) So many people will be happy to see her. :)
It's going to be a great weekend!
