I can finally talk about it. For two months, I’ve been going crazy trying to keep from letting the cat out of the bag and ruining my children’s Christmas gift.
So before I burst, let me just come out with it:
We’re taking the children to Disneyworld!
Try keeping that a secret for two months!
A few family members have known for a while, and have shown remarkable restraint in not revealing the surprise. They’ve all been itching to see how the children responded this morning.
Those of you who are long-time blog-visitors know that on Christmas morning, we CAN’T just give our children a little card that says “Surprise! We’re going to Disneyworld.”
No, no, no. We need suspense! Remember how we announced our pregnancy last Christmas? A secret envelope and a decoy gift are more our style. And a scavenger hunt! Ooh – and poems. Lots of poems. And, oh yes, a word puzzle thrown in for good measure.
We’re mean like that. Mwa-hahahahahaaaa! (maniacal laughter)
So if you are a like-minded, mean, scavenger-hunt, decoy-gift, poetic kind of person who is taking YOUR children to Disneyworld, and would like an idea on how to announce the news, or if you’d just like to share in our fun, here’s a little video from our Christmas morning. ;-)embedded by Embedded Video
