proof that i'm horrible at surprises

blog_DSC_9175
today i gave my sister-in-law a coupon redeemable for a saturday afternoon babysitter. i was sure she would enjoy a few child-less hours, i needed her boys as models for an idea i've had in my head for a little while, and i figured they would make a sweet valentine's gift for a wonderful mom.


it was supposed to be a surprise.

but the temple was closed today, bringing melissa and ryan back earlier than expected, and the surprise was foiled. [i'm sure she knew i was taking pictures, but that's besides the point]

i told heidi about our little photo shoot and let her know that i could always use lizzie as a 4th model - i'm so glad i did.

the plan was to unveil these lovelies on valentine's day - but i couldn't wait that long. just more proof that i'm incapable of waiting to hand out surprises. [i can't ever wait to receive them either, in case you were wondering].

p.s. i love these babies.
