"What was the most surprising gift you've ever received?"
It was 5:30am on Christmas day. It was perfect, the storm of the century was in between blizzards and our neighbors had shoveled us out knowing I couldn’t make it if they didn’t.
I was 9 months pregnant, exhausted from having stayed up late eating cookies and doing “santas” dirty work. It’s a yearly thing for he and I. The kids sit on HIS lap, tell HIM what they want, and then Mommy wraps it.
I must have pulled the short straw.
I had finally dragged my sore back, grumbly LARGE butt out of bed to go to the bathroom, for the umpteenth time…. When it happened.
My water broke.
Off to the hospital we went, contractions in full force, a 30 minute drive to the hospital and with it being baby #5, I knew that time was of the essence. (Lois)
By 7:20am, Christmas morning 2006, I had my beautiful baby girl Jacqueline Skylar Isolde (Issa) and was given the GREATEST surprise Christmas gift ever!!
