Yesterday was a very special homecoming for our family.  As noted in my previous post, this past month has been very busy for us.  Added on top of that, my husband has been deployed overseas for the past 4 weeks.  He was scheduled to leave at 6am in Birmingham on Thursday, April 28th, leaving me and the kids at home without power, just 12 hours after the tornadoes finished passing through our area.

He returned home yesterday morning (with a nice tan, I might add).  This was his first deployment in about a year and a half, as well as the first deployment that the kids really knew what was going on and why daddy was gone for so long.  They enjoyed getting to send him emails occasionally and receiving his individual emails addressed to them specifically.  We planned a nice welcome home dinner for him last night and the kids also decided to give him a "proper" American welcome.

Getting ready.....T-minus 10 minutes

Welcome Home!

And what do you do when your husband arrives home after being gone for a month???  Well, you put him to work, of course!

I might have planned a special dinner, but he had to cook it!  :)

We had family join us for steak & shrimp along with plenty of fixin's and finished the evening off with banana splits.  I am so thankful for my wonderful husband, who loves us dearly, serves and protects us and proudly serves our country!  It is wonderful to have him home with us again!
