EPIC SQUEEEEE!

Earlier this week, Mom emailed me to be on the lookout out for two packages in the mail. All she would tell me was that it was a surprise, and I could just picture the look on her face. (She's doomed to a family of good guessers. She rightfully savors when she really surprises us.)

I'm surprised all right.

It's the two-thirds or so of my childhood/adolescent doll collection that we thought was lost when they moved over a decade ago. Long story short, we came to the conclusion years ago that the box(es) must have flown out the back of my brother's best friend's pickup somewhere on I-70 between old house and new.

Including the 18" porcelain my mom custom-ordered for my 18th birthday, and a few from her childhood that she gave me when I was little.

I have two medium-large cardboard boxes of long-lost friends in my living room!!

(P.S. Mom, I tried to call, but your voice mail interrupted me in the middle of the message demeanding a remote access code. No idea if anything actually recorded.)

EPIC epic. I was seriously resigned to never seeing them again. And had in fact clean forgotten I owned several of them.

Where WERE they all this time?

In BigBabyBrother's cradle, in a box, in the garage attic. Mom has no recollection of packing them there, but they went to get the cradle down to see if BBB and Sister-in-Love want it for impending offspring, and there they were!

congrats!
Where ever did she find them?

ETA: Forgot to read comments before posting.

Have you figured out where you're going to display them?
