My Birthday

I have the best brother and sister ever!!!!

I was sitting at home on my birthday, last Thursday, when I saw a truck pull in from the flower shop that my sister, Laura works at. I thought that the delivery person had just gotten confused and was delivering the flowers for my mom, from dad at home.

Imagine my surprise when I found out that the flowers were for me and not mom! Thank you so much Laura - they are beautiful!

Later that day I got to work. When I arrived my boss (and aunt) said that something had come for me before I got there. I immediately recognized it as an arrangement from Laura's flower shop. My mind was feverishly working to figure out who they could be from, but I was drawing a blank.

So I pulled the brown bag off (it was a covering on top of the flowers) and took the card off. I immediately started crying when I saw who had sent me this beatiful bouquet of flowers - my brother, Andy, who most of you know, is in Virginia with the Army. I was so surprised that he would have come up with this idea! It means so much to me that he was thinking about me so far in advance (he told mom and dad that he had been planing this for months!). Thank you so much Andy! They are beautiful!

That's awesome! How sweet of them!

They are pretty great aren't they? The flowers are beautiful too!

Laura said...

I'm glad you liked them! Wow! Those tulips really grew overnight! I finished them the night before, and the tulips were much shorter, but tulips actually keep growing after they're cut, so those grew quite a bit and opened too! Hope your birthday was great!
