I'll take one husband and a side order of kisses

So after 9 long months I have a husband! I thought he was going to be coming home next week, well imagine my surprise when I get a call Tuesday night {from one very handsome man} saying that I need to pick him up from the airport the next day. Well, no questions asked, we would be heading out the next day to pick him up.
Off we went to the Tucson airport, but not with out balloons. Of course when you go and pick some one up from the airport you need balloons. Unfortunately the guy at Safeway took 30 minutes to blow up 6 balloons!!
The boys were great on the way up. We talked about how they needed to listen and that they couldn't run around, and that they had to wait until they got the ok before they could run up to dad. They were so excited to go into the airport and see dad.

We are about 2 minutes from the airport when I get a call. Steve was already off the plane and waiting for us. Getting balloons caused us to be late and the grand reunion that was suppose to happen.... well.... didn't. Steve was sitting and waiting for us to get there. Just sitting with his luggage waiting. {I felt really bad about that}

In the end it was a perfect way to welcome him home. And although it wasn't grand it didn't matter. To have Steve hold me again was all I needed. And to see the boys hugging and hanging on their dad was the best thing that I could see.

Welcome home Steve, I love you. You are my hero. I'm glad to have you home safe in my arms. I so happy to see you with the boys. They love you so much.

{Sweetie, I'll have those kisses super sized!!}

CONGRATULATIONS!!!

When we were moving from Arizona to Oregon, my husband moved first for work, while I stayed behind to get our house sold (and keep my income until it did). It took 9 months - it was horrible and we nearly gave up on the house altogether. Aah, but the homecoming was WONDERFUL!

I'm very excited for you all!
