I had been waiting for this day for months!!!!!!!
This also had been in the works for months.... So it was
exciting to finally have it happening!
Kirstin was coming home for a 2 week visit!!!!
The only ones who knew were myself, Kasey and
my dad but he thought it was the next day.
He had planned a big lunch at Olive Garden for the big
reveal and was so proud of himself... Little did he know
he would be getting a big surprise too!
I picked Kirst up in Vegas around 9:30 am, she had
meeting with a counselor at UNLV so we met with
him at 11. She is looking at doing the ARL program
for special ed when she comes home in Jan.
One of her only requests was to eat at Cafe Rio, drink
Dr. Pepper and soak in the tub while she was home.
I was able to hook her up with a Dr. Pepper and
Cafe Rio which didn't disappoint!
We headed to Mesquite and the plan was to drop her
off at McDonald's and I would go grab the kids for
ice cream - thinking we were going to meet Andrea.
The plan was in motion and I don't think I could have
planned it any better. Their reactions were priceless!!!!
Kirst was standing with her back to us at the ice cream
machine, we ordered and Mason was the only one to
order one. She turned to give it to him and he looked at
her, looked at me with the most confused, excited look
on his face. Brooklin has started to get her drink but had
turned around as Kirst was giving Mason his ice cream.
She was brought to tears which we knew she would be
but it was priceless!!! She just ran over and hugged Kirst
and sobbed for a good 5 mins or so.... We headed to our house
for a little bit, Kirst had a power nap and then we took off
for the next surprise!
Kasey had gone over to my parents and told them he had
ordered pizza. We picked up the pizza and Kirst was going
to be the delivery girl.... We just had to make sure mom
answered the door since we were surprising her for her
60th birthday!!!! Kirst was at the door and I was hiding
behind the bushes to video - Mom answered the door
and Kirst said, I have a pizza delivery for the Winters.
All mom could say was, Are you kidding me?
Dad was sitting in his chair in disbelief since he
was expecting her tomorrow!!! It was awesome and
mom even shed a few tears... I love watching the videos
over to see everyone's reaction! We have missed our Kirst,
it had been a year since everyone had seen her so we
loved having her home for a few weeks!!!!
