Welcome Home Andy!

Andy flew in on Monday evening. He will be home for 2 weeks! The weather was good during the day, but things started getting icy when we were waiting for his plane.

As we watched for his plane to come in, they were out salting the runways.
~~~Happy Mom, welcoming Andy home!
~~~

Here he is, greeting my Dad who hasn't seen him for almost a year.
~~~

My sister Cheri's daughters, Halle and Arianna were happy to see him again.
~~~
Terri's daughter Shaelyn greeting him.
~~~
It's so good to see these two together again.

Laura, Andy, Heather

It's been a long time since we've had all three of our kids in the car with us. Laura's husband Aaron was at work so she rode along. There was a lot of laughter in the back seat on the way home.
I'm going to take a little blog break now, and enjoy my family.
Merry Christmas to all of you!
