An early visit from St. Nick?!?

Today we attended a 50th Anniversary Mass and reception for some very dear friends of ours. In fact, it was for our children's wonderful swimming teacher! We had a wonderful time, and it was so nice being able to reconnect and visit with lots of old friends!

However, we forgot to lock our door before we left, and when we arrived home, we were all stunned to find a Christmas Tree in our living room!

What a nice surprise!!!!

Now, if we could just figure out where it came from?!?

UPDATE: Well, it turns out that the tree was a gift from 2 of my brothers, Paul & Scott! Actually, my first guess WAS Paul. :) He is such a sweetie! A few years back, on Thanksgiving, I unsuccessfully tried to get him to stay late at my parents and play board games with us, but he said he had another job to do. (He has an Outdoor Lighting business, and is always super busy hanging Christmas lights this time of year.) Anyhow, a few hours later, we headed home and were shocked to find OUR home COVERED in little white Christmas lights! It was BEAUTIFUL! He is always so thoughtful. When I called him last night, I asked if he had been playing Santa Claus again, and he laughed. He said that it was from him & Scott and that they had just done a job for a tree farm who wanted to add a bit of extra lighting in exchange for a few trees.

So that explains how we came home to find a tree in our living room... Something I would have never expected! Don't I have the sweetest brothers?!


  1. That is incredible! Something like that would never happen here. What a delight!

  2. That is a great thing, you are blessed. It would never happen here either!

  3. Was it your dad? Seems like something he would do!

  4. Oh how neat!! I bet the kids were thrilled! We always get our tree the weekend after Thanksgiving but looks like we won't make it this year!

  5. That is super duper sweet! I can tell by looking at it that that is a pricey tree. Which tree farm I wonder? Our trees at the Christmas Corral are from somewhere in your fine state.

    Fun surprise!
