There are many surprises being planned around here; I dare not say much more....other than.....I've told the kids this would be the last family night before Dad was back. I let them know I was sure he'd be back by next Friday. Always dangerous to say, but I feel confident. If you are local, remember....Shhhhhhhh....we're surprising our youngest ones. The older ones remember one trip like that and want to recreate the moment for the younger ones.
We decided to spend this family night preparing surprises for Dad's homecoming.....finished photos will have to wait as they'd spoil the surprise if Michael happened to check the blog.... we started making his favorite dessert, we've made posters and signs.....we bought balloons (I've been assured they'll last for weeks....as I didn't want to order balloons and have a last minute change. LOL)
Jared prefers creating his masterpieces on the computer....
The rest of us gathered at the table....
I'm not sure Stacia really understands what the poster she designed is for..... but it's sweet.
And look at the Daddy Jar after they all grabbed their Daddy candy this evening. I think there may be just enough to share the last candies when Dad makes it home (though I did buy another bag today in case I need to add a few....kids are thinking Dad won't be home until Wed or Thurs so actually I'll add some tonight.....I'm stunned how my close my "extended guess" as to a homecoming date has come.
Looks better than this one - and frankly this long nightly candy countdown may have cured me of my m/m fetish.
Living all of life before the face of God...
