can you keep a secret?

I am really not good at secrets, but my hubby loves them.  So, for his sake, I am trying to keep a secret from my kids.

There are two good reasons to keep this secret. 

One, something could go wrong and if they don't know about it, they won't be disappointed.

Two, if I don't spill the beans before Saturday, they will be completely surprised and super excited.

You may wonder why I am telling YOU that I have a secret to keep ...
mostly because I am relatively sure that most of you won't see my kids and even if you do (and you guess what the surprise is), I don't think you'll spoil it for them (or Ronnie).

I can't tell you what the surprise is just in case LB decides to read my blog, but I will tell you that I am shocked that we have finally decided to make this commitment and that we are driving over 80 miles to pick up this surprise - which is surprising enough, especially considering that we don't even know when we are going to tell the kids where we are going.  I have also been promised that I won't be the primary caregiver for this surprise, but we shall see how that works out!

Be sure to come back some time after Saturday ... I plan to have lots of pictures!

I know it! I figured it out!!

And honey, if LB reads this she'll know it, too. She's smart as a whip.

Keep her away!

Can't wait to see the pictures and hear what kind.

You are probably right, but she doesn't read my blog very often, so maybe we'll be safe. She's the reason we decided to do this ... she is terrified of them and we are hoping that this will help.

Well, I ruled out a couple of things before I got to the end! So I figured it out too!

Hi, Jennifer,

I'm pretty sure I figured it out...but can't wait to see your pictures. Having a surprise for the kids is so much fun!

Enjoy your day! :)

Girl, your life is about to change FOREVER. Okay, that may be a little dramatic, but it is alot like having a new baby...that's why I don't want either one!!!!

BTW, what are you going to do if LB gets there and won't get out of the van? LOL!
