Christmas with my family

What fun to surprise my sister Karen about my homecoming.  My folks and brother Tony and I were able to pull it off.  Karen’s expression on her face when I came out from the computer room into their breakfast area was classic.  A combination of fright as if seeing a ghost (hand to her cheek) and unbelief (speechless) knowing full well I came from the other side of the world.  But how?  We had a fun time playing games, eating, putting together a puzzle, eating, taking photos, eating and being together.  Only 50% of us siblings celebrated with my folks and they are happy to host as many as possible in their house in NW MN.
