The Best Surprise Ever!

Sunday evening, 18th September, I was getting ready to call it a night. It had been a busy day and by 8pm I was finishing up the last of the housework and ready to put my feet up, when my husband text. He asked me what kind of ice-cream I would like from the store, and if Kelly and her Chris would like any too. I immediately got excited at the sound of treats and happily curled up on my couch awaiting the return of my husband, who had been 'working'. I then received a text from my brother in law telling me to come over and hang out. My couch was pretty cozy, but when he mentioned pizza and ice-cream and that my husband had text him saying he was going to hang out at their apartment, I was up and running across the hall to prepare for family pizza and ice cream night. My dearest husband walked through the door only a few minutes later with a confused look on his face and no ice cream. He apologized saying he did not know which one I had asked for, so I explained what it looked like and off he went out the door 'to the store'. Not a minute after he had closed the door, it opened again and our little sister was standing in the doorway. Queue frantic screaming, hysteric crying and plenty of hugs. I think our hearts were beating manically while we tried to process our little sister being stood in front of us. After many more hugs, kisses and shaking our heads at our husbands, we settled down on the couch chatting away. My husband then informed me that he was hungry and actually going to go and pick up some pizza and ice cream and off he went out the door again. The next second the door opened and our brother walked help us God, I flew off the couch like a bird, Kelly ran in from the kitchen and the whole apartment complex were again woken up by our shrieks. Ladies and gentlemen, it was check mate. Our amazing brother and sister indeed got us back from when we surprised them two years ago. So today we simply wanted to share with you some pictures of our amazing week. We are beyond grateful that we got to enjoy some family time and hang out with our brother and sister. It's been one day since they left and we are missing them terribly already. The countdown to Christmas is now on! :)

We had an absolute blast having Chris and Jen with us last week and can't express just how much we loved having them here. Our apartments are too quiet now. The feeling of pure happiness and joy when they walked through the door won't leave us in a hurry and we just want to say thank you again to them for making the trip and taking time out of their busy schedules to see us. Also, huge thank you's go out to our husbands for managing to keep a secret for 5 weeks and for picking them up and pulling this whole surprise off without a hitch. Love you all so much!

Happy Monday everyone. Make it a great one!
Love Lucy and Kelly xx
