The morning started out with a delivery of 10 fresh, hand-packed Christmas fruit baskets to the Holiday Inn Airport in Little Rock....ahhh...such is the life of a produce man's wife! Then my mom wanted to run to Mardel, the local Christian bookstore to pick up a few last minute gifts
Gage made him a Christmas picture to hang on his wall.
But the best "craft project" of all is the scrap book the boys are making documenting everything that has taken place since Uncle Jake left for the Army. They are giving it to him for Christmas. Hunter has written notes on several different pictures. I love the part where he says "We played a lot but it would be funner with you." awwwwww He has such a sweet spirit!
We even made a welcome home sign. Gage used the "sparkley" paint and Hunter drew pictures of the Lonoke Jackrabbit football team. Family members stopped by all evening to sign their names.
When Kyndal showed up at 5:30 I really got excited...and realized that I still had not accomplished all I had set out to do!
Everyone was so excited they just wanted to hang out at the house...the boys do not know Jake will be home tomorrow night...they know he will be home soon. What they don't know is that Friday morning before the Christmas program at school he is going to show up in their classrooms and surprise them!
Even Bruno knew something was up today! As you can see it is almost midnight and I am still up...wide awake! I have finally finished all I set out to get accomplished but I just can not seem to close my eyes! We are leaving in two hours...TWO hours! That means in 7 hours we will see our baby boy...but don't tell him I called him that! Well, I'm off to make a pot of coffee, then brush my teeth....thanks for the comments and for allowing me to bore you with this hum-drum, but I know you can understand....thanks for that....and thanks for the prayers!
At least Kyndal won't have great big black bags under her eyes!
Good night and God bless and we'll see y'all again in a couple of days. Oh, by the way, Trish and Muse....thanks for counting the days with me!
