Wow! We really had a big surprise a few days before Thanksgiving. My mother-in-law arrived from the States to surprised the kids. Let me tell you, first it was really hard to hide from the kids. The night before Mom arrived, we told the kids that my husband, myself, and our oldest son Chris will be going to General Santos to Pick up some stuff there, but before we go there we have to swing by at the airport to pick up some package there, we told the kids that Bob needs help that’s why we have to bring Chris. We can’t bring all the kids because they had to go to school and they have exam that morning. Everybodys up early that morning too. We went to the airport around 5:50, Mom’s flight suppossed to arrived at 6:04am. We got to the airport like 6:00am. When we got there we decided to just stay in the car and wait for the airplane to land, before we go to the arrival area. Like around 6:05 i saw Mom walking towards our car, i was shocked that she was here already. I guess they left Manila earlier than the time they said. That was a shocked too. Anyway, when our oldest son saw Granny, he was really stunned. he was then running and hugging his granny and asking if it’s really her that he was seeing? Am i just dreaming? It was good seeing them so happy. They’ve been very close prior to the time we moved here to the Philippines. All our other 3 kids when they get home from school were really shocked that Granny’s in the house and they had no idea she’s coming. Our second child AJ was mad later co’z we didn’t tell him that grannys’ coming. He doesn’t like to be keep in the dark. He wants to know everything. Mom stayed here in the Philippines for 1 1/2 month. We really enjoyed having her here. Hope she can come back soon. We are hoping in September for Aj and Jeans birthday. Lets cross our fingers and hope for the best.
