SURPRISE!!

Later that afternoon, I took a nap!  When I woke up Guy said Todd and Diane had something to tell me…  I walked in, half asleep, in my sweatpants and SURPRISE!  Guy threw me a surprise party!  My dad and Donna were there, Todd and Diane, Courtney and Arden, Valerie…  All of my very best and most wonderful family and friends!  A very sweet gesture from Guy!
