My Son is Home!

Yes indeed...he arrived home safely late Christmas Eve Day and I cannot think of a finer Christmas present :)  He looks great!  And he is so very happy to be home with his family.  And so are we:)  Katie's brother was present at the actual homecoming and he took some wonderful photographs.  Katie was kind enough to let me share some of them.  Mike and Katie really are as happy as they look :)

Eagerly waiting...


Look at that little foot sticking out between them :) 

Michael...remember Daddy :) 

Ya, I do remember you :)

 The sweetest picture

 A beautiful family reunited :)

Many thanks to all of you for your good wishes and prayers for my son and his family during this deployment.  God answered them and brought Mike safely home.  For this and so many other blessings in my life, I am grateful.
