Remember this post? Well, the dying of Easter eggs had more meaning than just a fun Easter activity this year!
We have plans to present the basket to my parents in person right before dinner tonight. We were sneaky and we've invited them to dinner posing as a celebration to the end of tax season...oh little do they know what's about to hit them!
Of course, after news like that a casual restaurant wouldn't do...so we headed to Doe's for a nice steak and Orange Leaf to celebrate!
We sent a photo of the Easter basket to Hubby's parents and after a few guesses, they finally asked..."Are you going to have a baby?!?" We were so thrilled to be able to share the news with them as well..even if it was a little bit more long distance than we would have liked!
Looking back on that evening, it couldn't have gone any more perfectly! My parents are ecstatic to be grandparents and have already started discussing their nicknames...I'll share those later once they've fully decided! The entire evening my mom was either really quiet or talking our legs off! I think she might have been just a tad bit excited. And one of my favorite memories is a phone call from the next morning...still in shock I think, my mom called before I came to work and said..."Well, I'm still excited to be a grandma!" I'm so, so glad that our children will have both sets of grandparents nearby and will even get to experience life with 4 of their great-grandparents! What an incredible blessing from God!
