Sweet Reunion

Yes, Andy finally made it home this morning!! We were supposed to pick him up at 11 a.m. I was woken up by a phone call at 7:30, letting me know that he'd be in at 9 instead!! I woke up the kids and we scrambled to get out the door in time. I have to admit that it was much nicer than us anxiously waiting around all morning.

Unfortunately, he missed our 11 year anniversary by one day. That's okay though - we will celebrate every day for a long while now that he is back. :)

The buses pulled in and everyone got excited.

Hugs and kisses all around.

All 7 of us in one picture - that doesn't happen often enough!

YAY! Welcome Home, Andy! At church this morning they announced that the rest of the soldiers should be returning home by tonight at the latest. I'm glad your Dh is home. Enjoy your time together.

Yeah! What an awesome day it was for your family yesterday!

Please tell your hubby thanks from our family for serving. We appreciate his sacrifice for us. And thanks to the rest of you too, for being his support and standing firm in his absence.

Thank you!
