Welcome Back Heart Attack

As many of you know, our job takes us on many adventures around the U.S., and most recently, around the world. Four of the Powell Six Pack went on these adventures while Matix and Marley stayed home because they are in school. (Boy do we wish we could’ve taken them!!) We ended up being gone for two weeks straight, the longest we have ever been away from Matix and Marley. While seeing some of the most beautiful places in the world was AMAZING, we couldn’t wait to be home and together again as a family.

Our nanny, who stayed with Matix and Marley, thought it might be fun for them to create an awesome surprise for us to come home to. Because Valentine’s Day is coming up, they decided to give us one serious
heart attack. 🙂

We walked into our bedroom, bathroom and closet to find this:

#PowellPack #HeartAttack #ValentinesDay #Family

With some of the sweetest messages:

#PowellPack #HeartAttack #ValentinesDay #Family

From our sweet, amazing, superstar kids:

#PowellPack #HeartAttack #ValentinesDay #Family

#PowellPack #HeartAttack #ValentinesDay #Family

As if coming home to these two wasn’t awesome enough, their surprise made it even better. It is so true what they say, “There’s no place like home.” 🙂

    What treasured memories. Keep all of the sweet notes and drawings from your kids. Date them and store them safely to bring out later in years. My mother is now 88 and I’m 48 and she kept so many treasures from me and my two brothers. It is so special now to find them and look back at the love and silliness that made them. The tears flow from the love she has for us in her saving them all these years. They were tucked away, but not forgotten <3
