I have been rolling down my pre-blogging memory lane. Today I want to tell you a funny memory. This moment should have been captured on video, because It would have been a hit on YouTube!
A Big Surprise Gift
This happened years ago on Christmas Eve. I was just a girl, somewhere between seven and ten years old. It was time for our Morgan Christmas at my grandparent's house. We had a wonderful day with our family!
Gran took me into the other room to distract me. I was told that one of my gifts was really big. Some of my family needed a few minutes to prepare the gift. I was jumping up and down on the inside I was so excited! What in the world could be my BIG gift?
I remember waiting for what felt like forever. My suspense was growing by the second. When I was allowed to come back into the room, there was a ginormous box on the floor. I could not wait to see what was in the box!
My family kept stalling and they were driving this little girl crazy. I could not wait for another second. I had to know what was waiting for me inside that huge box! Finally, I was allowed to open the present. I tore off several layers of wrapping paper. I still could not tell what was inside the box.
Do you want to know what was in the box? Let me tell you, I have never fully recovered from what I found in that box. It was definitely a one of a kind gift! I ripped the box open with great anticipation!
When the box came open, my Aunt Kim jumped out and scared me! I do not remember my exact reactions, but I am positive that I jumped and screamed! "I had a baby heart attack," to quote my good friend Regan Walters!
It was a memorable Christmas with one of the most memorable gifts I have ever received!
I have an awesome aunt. It is always a blast to be with her. I do not have a picture from that Christmas to show you. Here is a picture from my birthday last year. This is me and my Aunt Kim.
Thank you to my family for teaching me to always have fun. I love all of you! I am so thankful for all of our great laughs and memories. Life with you all is never dull!
I appreciate you readers rolling down memory lane with me today. I hope you remember this story the next time someone gives you a big present. Just be prepared for anything to happen!
