my publisher's clearing house moment

Do you know those commercials for the Publishers Clearing House sweepstakes?  The one where the lady or man of the house is going about their day-to-day life and they answer a knock on their door only to find someone holding flowers, balloons and a gigantic check, letting them know all their dreams have just come true?

I had one of those moments recently.  Have a look....

(Cell phone video.  I know it sucks but I am just thankful Countrymouse filmed this.)

I still can't believe he's here (or that Matt and Countrymouse were able to pull off the biggest surprise of my life!).  Publisher's Clearing House has nothin' on me!

I hope your holiday is filled with awesome goodness and lifelong memories.  I know mine has been.
