We had the greatest SURPRISE this Christmas Eve. Mike's sister Natalie was the only one not going to be there this year for Christmas. We were all really bummed and actually quite upset that they weren't coming. There were all kinds of excuses but none good enough, this was the one year where we could all be together, and may not happen for a very long time! Well it turned out that we all had a very special visitor that night. All of a sudden comes here comes Santa climbing up Garrett's back stairs up to the door in his backyard. Everybody seems really confused and the question of "who is that?" kept going around? Nobody had seemed to know this Santa, yet this Santa knew everybody's name. Hmmmm, this Santa is really good whoever it is? Well after he took care of the kids with lots of treats he asked for Pam and Wes to have a seat by him. He asked them a couple questions, one being "So do you have everyone in your family here tonight?" And of course we said no, Natalie is missing--she wasn't able to come." So Santa had everyone take a look out the back window and low and behold ---Natalie and Fam walked in from the garage to the kitchen and surprised everyone there. SO Brandon was the actual Santa even though none of us had a clue it was him. He put on a pretty good show--fooled us! So we had a great Christmas Eve with the whole Jones Family that night. Thanks to Natalie and Brandon for making the trip and a successful SURPRISE!!!
