The Great Christmas Surprise

 

I just couldn’t take it anymore.  The secrecy.  The coded phone conversations.  I am just not good at subterfuge!

So, I had had enough.  I needed to come clean.

My parents dropped their early November Saturday activities – including much deserved naps – and went to work to help with The Big Reveal: Christmas 2013. We skyped with Nana and Opa so they could watch the boys as the reveal took place.  What a blessing technology is!

They actually made a video, complete with coded message for the boys to watch to learn their fate: Disney Cruise + 3 days at Disney World.  Merry Christmas to us!

Thanks to Dropbox, Nana and Opa were able to share their Big Reveal video with us. I connected my computer to our TV so the boys could see it nice ‘n big.

Boys are getting read to watch and learn.

A little happiness, here!

After the video was over, we finished our Skype. The final reaction:  Ben is nervous (“I don’t like boats.”) but both Luke and Levi are 100% excite.  I think once Ben gets on the ship and realize how safe it is, he’ll relax and have a good time.
