Yea!! A surprise for Jacob!

I've been waiting and waiting for my sister and her son to come back up here to see us and FINALLY they made it!  I've missed them so much!!  And so has Jacob.....and Addison, well, she has no clue!

I decided that having them come up here would be a big surprise for Jacob and thank goodness I found out just a couple of days ago that they were able to come up here.  Because if I had to wait anymore I would have never been able to keep my mouth shut!  I have a love/hate relationship for surprises and this was killing me.  Poor kid talked about his surprise for days and up until we arrived at the airport he truly thought it was a toy from Target.  I'm training him right and his daddy hates it!

So we get to the airport and the first thing he asks is if the surprise is his Daddy coming home :(  I knew this question was going to come so I made sure to tell him from the get go it wasn't going to be daddy.  Then he looked at me with a VERY serious look and said "Tell me we ARE NOT picking up crawfish!!!"  I seriously about wet my pants it was so funny!

Several months ago, we had a crawfish boil at our home (hubby is from Louisiana) and we have them shipped from Louisiana to the airport.  Jacob went with hubby last time to get them.  I don't eat them, I think they are nasty, dirty and foul but that is a story for another day.  And trust me I have some stories about crawfish and our parties ;)

The look on Jacob's face when he saw his cousin was priceless!  He is thrilled and was NON-stop giggles and talk on the hour ride home.  But he is excited and loves him and it makes it all worth it!

I'll post some pics in a little while.  It's way too early right now for me to get up and find my camera.  I'm lucky I was able to share this much with only a half of cup of coffee!
