This is our first Christmas in Fl- we moved from NY about 6 months ago. We have ZERO family down here and my 3 kids are missing everyone. My mom and dad are going to be showing up on Christmas morning- the kids have no idea! We are busy making this big turkey dinner with 4 pies and the kids are just seriously unknowing :yup: We even have their presents under the tree and still, no clue!

that'll be a great surprise. make sure you got the cameras ready. i'm sure the looks on their faces are ones you'll want to keep. :)

How cool! Any chance you can get them to wear Santa hats?:D Have a great Christmas and enjoy the time with your family. My Mom surprised me the day before my birthday in October and her being there was the best gift ever! I Love my Mom! Merry Christmas!

Well they got me! Here I am thinking they are driving from VA to FL after stopping to visit my sisters. They never left VA until after 9 pm, so I was thinking great, they are going to miss presents after driving 12 hours. I fell asleep about midnight after doing Santa duty. A little before 1 am I get a call- my mom saying one of my outside lights is blown. I am thinking ok, its 1 am....what the heck do I care? Oh...wait a minute. How did she know that? I go to the front door and open it and in my half awakeness I see nothing. My husband opens the door and is like they are right there! I never even saw their car. Turns out they had bought plane tickets and decided to surprise me on top of it all!! Merry Christmas everyone!

Kids woke up at about 2 am and walked right into where they were sleeping. My oldest is really close to my mom so she just hopped right into bed and woke her up! They were very excited!
