The big homecoming!

Last night Beau got home, FINALLY!!!! He was traveling for over 24 hours, had a 7 hour lay-over in Baltimore and had a small delay in Dallas. I think they got here at like 9:45 last night, pretty late!

Zoey was so unbelievable excited to see him. She kept hugging him and would NOT let go, it was soooo sweet! She knew him right away and yelled Daddy and ran right up to him. It was really cute.

A lot of people showed up, his supervisor Greg, the Chief, and a few others. It was really nice to see everybody and Beau said he was shocked to see everybody there.

Zoey had a lot of fun helping him get his bags off the luggage thing. She kept telling him that he was sooo strong because he was lifting the heavy bags off of it.

We visited for a little while and then came home. He's in-processing right now and then he's gonna work on his car, it's so nice he's back to take care of these things!!!!! He finds out how much time off he'll get, it's gonna be nice to have a little time to get things done. Next week I get my wisdom teeth out, ugh, so I'm glad he'll be off for that!

Here's us waiting for Daddy to come... Zoey kept saying she was done and she wanted to go home, it was past her bedtime! She was dancing and telling me a story while we waited.

A couple days ago I made Zoey a shirt to wear to pick him up, it turned out better than I thought it would. The front is the green one and the yellow picture is on the back of it. She was excited to wear it!

We made a sign too, I can't believe I gave her glitter glue, she finger-painted over the letters with it... Oh well, she had fun! She would only put purple stars on it and she really wanted to keep the rhinestones to herself... It was fun to make though!

Well, I'm making pork chops and potato salad for supper tonight, it'll be nice for things to get back to normal!! Beau is like in awe of everything... he couldn't wait to go outside this morning to see the grass and trees. He said the sun sets at 6:00 in the evening and rises at 4:30 in the morning in Iraq so it was weird for the sun not to be up at 7:00. He seems glad to be back, and we are sure glad he's home!!!!
