Welcome Home Daddy!!

Brian got home a week ago this past Thursday. His flight was delayed until the next day so instead of the afternoon we had to get up at 4am the next morning to be at the Events Center. I wasn't sure how I was going to get everyone up and ready but we made it. :) They had so much to do which was great while we waited (several hours)... bounce house, crafts, games for the kids, music, food. Helped the kids pass the time quickly.
They gave out prizes for the kids when they participated in games... this was one that they especially liked. :)
"Can't wait to meet my Daddy!"

Here they come! They played Lee Greenwood's "God Bless the USA" so everyone was teary before they even came through the doors.

Fortunately they didn't have to stand there too long before they released them to their families. Brian was somewhere on the right hand side of the formation.
So proud to be an Army Wife! A feeling you can't quite explain...

The kids wanted Adam to have a sign too.
So happy!
Matt and Siobhan
First thing when we got home... WRESTLE TIME!

I put the kids to bed that night and this is what I found when I came back downstairs. :)
Brian had a few days off and now is going through reintegration but isn't usually gone all day so we're enjoying our time together as a family again.

Thanks for praying and supporting and helping us through this (short) deployment... we appreciate you all!

Wow I am glad he is home! I love the special entrance with the smoke.......too cool! I haven't seen all that here in Gemany. Bounce house and things were a great idea too. I will keep that in mind in two years it looks like for our welcome home!
