Sometimes, my mom rocks

Doorbell rang earlier today.  I wasn't expecting anyone or anything. 

When I got up to look, the ringer had gone and left on my porch were two brand new bicycles:  a 12" Thomas bike and a 16" Lightning McQueen bike. 

I'd casually mentioned a month or so ago that the boys don't have bikes to ride with the neighbor kids in the evenings.

So off to Target to get some helmets.

She said she got a random unemployment check in the mail-- part of some unemployment extension. (Hers ran out last fall!) So because she is always buying stuff for my sister's kids, she wanted to do something nice for Andy and Joey.

It was a total surprise. When I called her she was all like, "Oh, they got there already?" She must have just ordered them yesterday.

Yeah, I thought they were pretty awesome. :)

Of course, yours was supposed to be delivered when you were home but they left it on the doorstep a little early.
