My husband is currently stationed overseas. Me and our 2 (soon to be 3) kids are with him, but we are wanting to plan a surprise visit home to see our families for Christmas.
I'm wondering if any of you have done surprise visits home and how it went. What are some good ways to surprise them? I am thinking of just planning a skype date with them, but instead of skyping, we will just walk in their house. Is it too simple? I don't want it to fall through because there is always a chance that the skype session will get cancelled if they decide to go out instead or the time doesn't work for them.
I have already thought about some things that could go wrong and thinking of ways to avoid errors, but any help will be awesome. Haven't done this before, but want it to go smoothly. Thanks in advance!
