He's Back!!

Since y'all have already seen my Christmass tree as part of Cheapass Christmass (click on the link in the sidebar if you haven't!), I'll give you the highlight of my weekend instead of the blogstalking assignment.

I'll set the scene for you.

5:15 p.m. CST

Chunky and I are outside. I'm knitting a sweater (shut up, I know it's Texas) and Chunky's digging for snail shells just past the back porch. It's 80 degrees. (See the above note about it being Texas).

The phone rings.

I tell Chunky to stay outside.

Dr. Mad Scientist is on the phone. He's in our parking lot.

We hatch the plan.

We hang up. I unlock the front door and go back outside to Chunky. I take him to the tennis courts to do a couple of sprint races with me (he's a competitive little bugger and likes to beat me by weaving in front of me at the last minute to slow me down to seal the win).

While we're outside--Dr. Mad Scientist sneaks inside the apartment and hides in Chunky's closet.

After five races, I tell Chunky we should go in since it's almost dinnertime.

Once we get in, I grab the camera and tell him to go grab Rosie (his beloved stuffed monkey--who is in the bedroom) so I can take a picture of Rosie with her new stocking that my mom made her for Christmas.

I follow him into the bedroom. His closet (and Dr. Mad Scientist!) are to your left when you walk into his bedroom. His bed is a straight line from the door. He grabs Rosie and starts to head out. At first we thought he wouldn't even see Dr. Mad Scientist in the closet--but luckily as he heads out, he turns to his left--sees who's in his closet and yells "DADDY!"

And the rest my dears, is history!

The coveted "first hug"!!!

Broken up by a kiss!

Back to the hugging!

Awwww....!!!!! I've got both my boys now!!

You're awesome!!! I would've made a mad dash to the parking lot as soon as I knew my DH was there and would never have thought up of such a neat surprise for my child. Your son's expression in that last photo is priceless. Joy and happiness just oozes out of him. Cherish that one forever and enjoy your family's reunion.
