While we were gone, Nanny watched them. She took them to the nearby 7-11 for a slurpie and then they tried to catch up with a cat that was visiting our backyard. We got home at about that time and called them to the house. They started to hear the meowing from the box and automatically assumed it was the cat they were following, so funny. So they went running outside to find it again and we had to pull them all back in the house to open the box. The meowing was stronger in the house but still, they thought it was the one outside. We started to open the box for her, she (they) had no idea what to expect from the cardboard box that she had to open.and then the little orange kitten popped his head out and surprised everyone. You can see the surprise on their faces in the first picture below. Hannah didn't know what to think.
And yes, she was very excited. So much so that she didn't want to go to the party in the afternoon because she had to leave him at home alone. That made her very sad. The same type of thing happened when Rebekah was born, she didn't want to leave me and her sister. Ever. Even to go to the park. This will wear off, I'm sure.
Happy Birthday Hannah!
