I kept a secret from my husband...

A secret I didn't think I could!  I found out Monday the 19th and up until mid-morning on Christmas I was dying to share something with him.  I really wanted to wait until Christmas though, and I really wanted it to be an absolute surprise.  But I'm horrible at surprising my husband...and news like this is too exciting not to shout from the rooftops.  Plus, he's too smart for my own good so I wasn't sure I'd make it the whole week without spilling the beans.
But I had it planned out...
I made a special gift and inside was this:
These paper things have been a little part of our marriage since the beginning... I've made these here and there; usually with cute love notes inside.  Sometimes reverting to junior high is a fun way to express your love the best... or to tell someone something.

They played it once, guessing "Hyrum" then a number then another number... "Go again!"

So then they guessed "Tony" and a number then another number (Brody guessed five) and Tony read: "We're a family of five....
He thought for a split moment..
"YOU'RE PREGNANT?!!!  REALLY?!!"
We both laughed and hugged and kissed and it was perfect.  He said, "best present today!"  He asked how I didn't tell him sooner; he found out right away with the boys (I've been asking myself the same!).   He also asked why I took pictures instead of videoed it.  I meant to!  Arg!  Oh well...I'm so happy!  I still can't believe I was able to keep that to myself for a week- and that Tony was completely surprised.  But most of all, I can't believe how lucky I am that number three is on the way!
