So being the sweet husband that he is, he first said, well lets go buy a celebratory gift. He said I was prepared to buy you a "sorry it didn't work" gift, but now I want to celebrate by buying it anyways and it was also close to Valentines, so it we had a double reason!
That is when this came into play!!! I had been wanting an Ipad for forever.
After we bought the ipad we headed straight for little rock. My thought was that I could put this picture as the screen saver and then show them what Marc got me for valentines. But since we didn't even go home, I had no time to set it up. So then I already had them a gift, which they knew I had one but didn't know what it was. I told my sis what is was so no one would get suspicious.
We arrived in Little Rock around 9sih, knocked on their door and said surprise! I explained the reason we were there was because it was my Nana's 80th birthday and I didn't want to miss it because I had missed my grandfathers 79th and he didn't make it to 80 and I've regretted that a ton. (which I really did). Although we did miss her party, I wanted to have lunch with her and spend the day with her on Saturday. They totally bought it. Then we just sat there and chatted awhile and tried to act non-chalant as possible. Then Marc went to get our bags, and I was like, "Oh yeah, grab their gift I got them."
So they began opening the gift and this is what hey opened:
Then I wrapped the preggo test in tissue paper and put it at the bottom of the sack. So they first opened the happy light, and they were like, "oh thanks." I think they were thinking it was going to be something super exciting, and it was kind of a let down, Ha!
Then I said there is one more little thing in there that might make you happy.
Here you can see them opening it! (turn volume down)
The next morning we went to tell Nana. We handed her the preggo stick and she said, "I know this isn't mine, I'm not pregnant." We thought that was hilarious. She really loves to joke around but really was so excited for us. She absolutely is obsessed babies!
Then I sent this to a few friends! And we also did the iPad picture with some other friends.
It was super fun to be able to tell our close friends and family. We ended up calling Marc's family because they live almost 6 hours away. They were still so thrilled for us. We are thankful for all of their support and prayers over the years. We definitely could not have done it without them.
Once again, thanks for sharing in our JOY with us!
