Welcome home Grandma and Grandpa!!!

So my parents came home from their mission last week. We got lucky and they spent Thursday night at our house - we were the first to see them!!!!

So, my siblings and I had been planning a little (maybe big) surprise welcome home party for them on Saturday for a few months. It was pretty fun planning and organizing it all. We decided to have a huge icecream bar in honour of all the time they spent at their local DQ. When I say huge I mean it...every single topping you could possibly imagine was there. And everything was decorated so cute too! So many wonderful friends and family showed up and made the night so much more perfect. We had a small program where the grandkids sang a song, Nate gave a tribute, Mom and Dad responded and then we watched a beautiful slideshow of images from their mission (that we might have swiped without their knowledge) along with pictures of what all their kids were doing at home at the same time. It was a fun night and I'm glad we were able to pull it off and genuinely surprise them! They're the greatest parents/grandparents/friends/Aunt/Uncle/missionaries/people ever and they deserved to be acknowledged! We love you Mom and Dad!!
