They are beautiful people, and some of our best friends in the world.
We used to hang out with them all the time when they lived here, but they moved to Utah a YEAR ago and we haven't seen them since.
What's worse...they had a BEAUTIFUL baby girl, Georgia, who we had yet to meet! She is nearly 7 months old and had not even met "Aunt and Uncle" Lucas and Amber! tsk tsk on us for letting so much time go by!
When Carrie and Scott heard we were moving to Colorado they decided to drive up and visit us last minute! They let me know they were coming, but I kept it a surprise for Lucas.
When I picked Lucas up from work, I told him I had a surprise for him but he had to wait until midnight for it.
Lucas spent the whole night trying to guess what it could be. He loves surprises and get super excited for them. Some of his guesses were "Is something great on TV?" "Are your visiting teachers going to let us borrow Just Dance 2?" "Are Jason and MaShay coming to visit?" Then he would analyze everything I did and say "Hey, why are you cleaning up? Is somebody coming over....?"
I just kept saying "You'll never guess it, so don't try!"
So we stayed up til midnight (we NEVER make it to midnight on work days..it was tough). Luckily, just as we started getting tired we had a knock on the door and I yelled "COME IN!" and buried my face in a blanket because I was smiling so big. Lucas whispered..."who is it!?!" and Carrie and Scott walked in. We were all SO SO excited. Lucas was way happy and SO surprised to see our good friends.
We stayed up until 3 am talking and laughing and keeping their darling daughter up way too late. The next two days we spent continuing with laughing and talking, having some girl time and guy time, eating way too much food, and of course playing with the baby. It was so much fun.
I also fell in love with Georgia. Nothing like a beautiful baby to tug on the "ready to adopt" heart strings. I could have hugged and kissed that little angel nonstop (and practically did)!
