O Happy Day!

Friday, Sept 12 was our big day to get Chris from the Orlando International Airport!  We were more than ready to have him back after 26 days.  The house was cleaned and the “Welcome Home Daddy” banner was made (complete with glitter and hung on the garage door).  We eagerly waited for him to come out of the hallway separating the arrivers from the waiters and it was wonderful to see him in person when he did!  We all got hugs and kisses.  He pulled treats out of his bag for the kids.  We had dinner in the city and it was so good to be together again.  Also, for me not to be in-charge, alone.   We had Saturday, Sunday, Monday, & Tuesday to just get back to normal.  Of course, Chris was greeted by foot high grass, a clogged bathroom sink, and other house responsibilities, but that’s just how it goes.  Having four days before back to work was perfect!

    Yay! Welcome home, Chris! Mike was just gone for two days and it stunk. I can’t imagine 26 days!

    I am so glad he made it home! I kept checking the blog and wondering and praying. Now, I don’t need to pray for that, just praise! There is nothing like having a husband and daddy back! Our kids were happy for your kids. 🙂
