Journey #80: Best Kept Christmas Secret

Merry Christmas to everyone! I took the time last season to just take pictures and enjoy the quality time rather than blog. So this post is after the holiday season but it was worth it. About 3 months before Christmas we found out the grandparents wanted to visit. I am a planner, so of course I had our Christmas trip planned since September. We decided we would go to Prague for Christmas.  We always do a “Trip Under The Tree” for Christmas instead of tons of gifts. Memories are what will be remembered not the “stuff”. We had been to Prague before and thought it was a very beautiful old city so we decided we would do it again. We told the grandparents of our plan and they decided they would meet us in Prague. I asked them to keep it a secret so we could surprise the kids. They didn’t think it would work. If you follow me on Instagram you saw the video and the shock of it all by the squeal that burst from their mouths. It was a very teary-eyed emotional moment of all parties involved. It was amazing and by far the best surprise ever! My children are blessed to have such loving, dedicated, and involved grandparents in their lives. My husband and I are blessed that they make the effort at least once a year to come and see our family. Family is the most important thing in the world no matter your differences. I am glad that my children have that as I had it growing up as a kid and it was amazing.  My grandmother was the most influential woman in my life and still to this day even though she has passed on. The legacy I want to leave behind is Family Is Important. The good, the bad, and the not so nice times. Everyone in this photo is all because of a boy met a girl in 5th grade and they created all these blessings. Merry Christmas Everyone!
