surprise, surprise!

I got such a surprise last night. I went out to my in-laws house for a cookout...Jake's Uncle Jeff and Aunt Sharon were in town from South Carolina.

We were waiting for Ganny to get home from taking a plate to a friends house...and we were waiting for others to arrive. I decided to go ahead and eat so I could take care of the kids while everyone else eat.

I heard Aunt Debbie coming in the door as I was finishing my dinner. She was insistant that the boys take the pies from her hands and take them inside. I didn't think it to be like her to be so insistent. :O)

I got up from the table and was walking towards her with full hands. I asked her to wait just a second and I would hug her. As I looked up, I saw Jake....SHUT-UP!!!!! (That's exactly what I said!!!) I was completely surprised! And, for Jake that is an accomplishment!! He has never been able to hold in a surprise.

As Grandaddy was leaving he told me he was so glad he got to see my reaction...he then told me to never tell my husband to shut up again! LOL

By the end of the evening I also figured out that EVERYONE was in on this except for me. Ganny went to drop that plate off and then ran out to the airport to pick Jake up. Aunt Debbie was so insistent cause the boys were on their way outside about the same time Ganny was pulling in with Jake. She wanted them to take the pies in so they wouldn't see him.

Everyone knew but me. My mom even knew....she thought for sure she was going to give it away by all the questions she had been asking in the days before. She always asks a million questions...that would have never given it away!

Thank you Babe for suprising me!!!! I'm so glad you're home....even if it is for just a couple of days.
