Visitors still aren’t announced ahead of time here. I think it works best to just tell/show the girls something instead of giving them notice. Because, well, I’m not good at dealing with “when?” questions!
So, we didn’t tell them that grandma and grandpa were visiting last weekend for their birthday. And, we certainly didn’t tell them that we would be surprising them at school for their birthday celebrations.
First, I went into the room (she knew I was coming) and took a sweet picture of her (so loving that I was actually there for her birthday celebration. I always missed them before!)
Then, grandma and grandpa walked into her classroom. She wasn’t surprised or excited at all!
Nope, not thrilled one bit at seeing grandma…
or grandpa. That isn’t the picture of joy. Not one bit.
We then helped celebrate by sharing ice cream cups with all of her friends and signing happy birthday.
Then, we went to little sister’s classroom to do a little surprising there as well.
I went in first, and then grandma and grandpa came in.
She was a little more hesitant, but then ran over and gave grandma a big hug!
Grandpa got some loving, too.
Then, she sat down for her ice cream and happy birthday singing, too.
And, wanted one more picture.
It was a very busy and exciting weekend here, and I know the girls greatly enjoyed their visit. They are already asking when grandma and grandpa will visit again.
