"SURPRISE!"

Yesterday was my 26th birthday. My family REALLY pulled it off this year & threw me an AWESOME surprise party!! I, honestly, had ZERO clue what was going on... We were in Show Low for Shauna's wedding & drove down yesterday afternoon. Once we got home, I rushed into the house (thinking I only had 15 minutes to get ready for our dinner reservation) & was greated by a screaming mob of 23+ of my favorite people!! Oh, & an added bonus, my sister that's living in TX, Gwen, & her family were in the crowd (HOW did they keep that secret from me???). The women in my family came over, cleaned my house (Sorry again Michele, but THANK YOU!), decorated, made the best tasting burrito's, & totally pulled off the FUNNEST party- I was completely surprised & felt SO special! So, how could an already awesome party get any better?? By me opeing up my very own, shiney & new, Canon Rebel xSi digital camera (with all the accessories & 2 extra lenses)!! I almost peed my pants & did cry a little! After I opened it, I couldn't put it down- I LOVE THIS CAMERA!!Here are some snap shots I took of some of the craziness known as my party:I really had the BEST birthday ever- so many surprises & people I love! My mother told me earlier in the day to look for a present from my Heavenly Father- my family is it! Thank you all for making me feel so important & special! I love you all VERY much!!
