I Love Surprises!

While we were playing at the park and on a hike with our friends this afternoon, Bob was setting up our Christmas gift from his parents!

The sun was trying to peek through the clouds...we're expecting our first real snowfall tonight!
When we got back home we told the children that we wanted to have a *family meeting* in the basement. They thought they were in trouble (well, Ben did anyway...check out that look on his face). We waited to see if they would notice something new...
Austin was so busy reading his Star Wars book that just came from the library that he didn't believe Emma's exclamation of "we got a Wii"!!!

We've all been enjoying the fun! And the fact that the nosiest, snoopiest kids on the planet had NO idea that this was coming made the moment even sweeter.
This will definitely be called *recess* on those too-cold-to-go-outside-for-very-long winter days.
Thank you so much, Joe and Jacque!!!
