Update

Okay, I've got you all curious, and I didn't mean to get you crazy like that! The big surprise isn't a pregnancy, adoption, or anything of the sort.

Every year Paige and I drive to NH, get a hotel for a couple nights, and do school shopping. It's a girl thing, and we really enjoy it.

This year, we headed south, but didn't go to NH like Paige thought we were going to do. Instead we drove to the Boston airport, and boarded a plane to Minnesota, to the Mall of America! Woo hoo! We're here, and having a blast. We're headed back to the mall shortly. I totally pulled it off, and she was confused and surprised.

I will post pictures upon my return, and give you the details. I just couldn't keep you guys thinking that it was BIG news, that wouldn't have been fair! It was a big surprise and secret to Paige, and to other people that thought we were just going to NH as usual.

p.s. Midwest airline rocks - they bake and serve warm chocolate chip cookies during the flight! Can you even believe that? Love it!

Hi Christine!!!!!!
Wow, what a great time you two must have had! Do we get to see some first day photos? I have been running around like a crazy woman the last month. I have missed sooo much. I am so sorry to hear about Deisel, that was just WRONG! Your sweet puppy is with our sweet puppy enjoying the best life together! It is just hard to accept. I ahve lost all my emails which meant your new number too. I accidently deleted everything and don't know if there is a way to ever get them back? Have you guys started school yet? Meisi loves her BIG girls school! I also checked out all the photos of ya'lls Maine vacation with the Chenoweth's and the pics were terrific! I am sooo jealous. I will try to update our blog tonight, I have been there in a long time! Love ya'll and miss you!! Amy

Hi, I'm Melissa. said...

Carolyn and Paige were texting that day, and Paige was wondering why you guys were in Boston so I said, "Maybe they're going to the Mall of America." haha! =]

Lauren and Ed said...

HEELLLOOOO....where are you Christine?? How has school gone for the kids? Does Sophia like going to preschool? Meisi loves it, she thinks she is such a big girl. Taylor loves high school. Even though technically he was in high school last year his ninth grade school is completely by itself. 10th, 11th, and 12th is in one school. How is Paige doing? Oh, HAPPY GOTCHA DAY! Talk to you later...Love Amy
