SURPRISE!!!






Neither Maile or I could believe our eyes on Saturday when Christian showed up to supposively pick us up for a little model shoot for Deseret Book magazine and also to bring a big surprise for Maile from their house that they've been getting ready to sell and out jumped Aaron. YEAHHHH!!! When Christian came he said oh but maybe you should come out and see this big thing so I don't have to haul it in in case you don't want it, then I can just take it to DI, well we went outside and there was an enormous box there on the porch and as I went to open it out jumped Aaron, he scared the crap out of Maile and I. It was such a fun surprise, I realize it has only been 2 1/2 weeks but it was soooo goood to see him again. Maile just can't stop talking about Daddy jumping out of the box and scaring us. He could only stay until early this morning, but we all loved it! Maile wanted Daddy to do everything, she wanted nothing to do with me. He had to read, sing, play, hold, and my favorite change her all day. She loved snuggling with him and saying Maile's Daddy then proceed to point out daddy's nose, daddys arm, daddy's head and mouth, etc. it was so fun to see how excited she was to have him home. Emmy even couldn't take her eyes off him when she woke up then she would squeal and flap her hands (it was so cute to watch the girls excitment). Of course I loved every minute he was here too. I honestly felt like we were dating all over again, I was so giddy whenever he would walk in or we would be talking. So, yes the saying is true "absence makes the heart grow fonder". We love you Aaron and had such a great weekend! Thanks for the fun surprise! (I have some fun pictures from the surprise but those will have to wait cause I left my camera at my sisters)

How fun. It would be hard to not have your husband, but it also does sound fun that it was like you were dating again... I miss that feeling sometimes!

Oh Jess! What a fun surprise...I actually got kind of emotional reading that! Just thinking about how much you missed him. That makes me happy.
