"The Best "Present" of all"!!! " SUPRISE"!!

On Christmas Eve... a "Suprise" was had by all.. Kevin did not tell me and kept a secret from me.. He had planned it 10 days before.. He set up the whole scenerio.. He told us to all be home about 4 pm that a friend of his "A MAGICIAN" was coming over for a fun-christmas eve.. We all believed him..(we all are so dang gullible).. Kevin is quite a fun-filled suprise guy anyway!! He told us to go in the bedroom and when he told us to come out.. we we're all being embarrassed and shy.. Remember.. we thought it was a Magician.. ha!! The room was dark cept' the Christmas tree lights we're on.. (He was setting the mood) There was a big box in the middle of the room and it was wrapped with a big bow.. He told us the Magician couldn't make it but,"underneath this box was our "SUPRISE"! Kevin had a wooden spoon and told Kenny to tell him the magic words so the "SUPRISE" would appear.. (We all still had NO CLUE!) Kenny said the magic words and the box would wiggle and move.. (We we're all a little scared) We lifted the box and THERE WAS OUR DAUGHTER, LAUREN.. WHO LIVES IN MAUI, HAWAII.. We had not seen her for one year!!!!.... All I can say is I was in complete SHOCK.. I just WEPT when I saw her.. words can not express how I felt.. I had NO CLUE... If you knew our situation we really did not have a way to get her here... but, somehow our Heavenly Father made it possible..
Now, there is no gift that could compare to this!!! Having all my Children together was THE BEST GIFT OF ALL!!! I LOVE my Lauren.. She is so fun, full of life, independent and has a giggle that is contagious... I love her unconditionally and I thank the good Lord she is our daughter forever!!! This has been the BEST Christmas of all.. No money, material goods could
compare to how I feel !!
"Hang Ten".. ALOHA!! LAUREN IS HERE FROM HAWAII!!!
A BEATTY tradition.. Youngest goes first to see what SANTA brings....
SHHH..... SANTA HAS BEEN TO OUR HOUSE!!! How blessed we are!!
"SILENT NIGHT, HOLY NIGHT" ... ALL IS CALM.. ALL IS BRIGHT"!!
Blessings of Peace, joy, good-will to all !!!
