5 days down......

Look who came home early.
Donovan brought the red eye home last night.....making us the happiest family in the whole airport this morning.

Don't ask me why William chose this particular time to scratch himself. Too bad I got that on camera. But had to use the picture because look at Donovan's face.


Donovan flight was originally going to take off this morning that would've put him in South Bend at 3:30 this afternoon. But after a whole week of Cali he decided to travel rather than sleep last night. The only flight that left after his full day of meetings yesterday was a flight that he boarded at 11:30 IN time. Which made us all very excited to have him home early. I love the look on Suzy's face here....I feel rather sorry for the youngest member who couldn't really understand that Daddy WOULD come back to us.


How very true that absence makes the heart grow fonder. I HATE, HATE, HATE when he's gone, but it's always such a great reminder of how very blessed I am.

Then after we met Donovan at the airport....we stopped for breakfast. Mmmmm....Delish. I love eating out...I love not cleaning up after a meal. What a treat. We even went nuts and let the kids each get their own Chocolate milk!! We were livin' the dream.

And for the quote of the day.....

Comes from William:

(Yesterday morning, first words out of William when he woke up)

"Mom, come here so I can kiss your chubby cheeks."

Oh Heather, so glad your man is in your arms again. You were in my thoughts & prayers several times this week.

It really stinks when they're gone...Kevin has been able to catch an earlier flight a few times too and it's always a welcome surprise.

Have a wonderful weekend soaking up your family! I like the balloon idea! :)

What great pictures-the one with William made me laugh and the one of Suzy and her Dad is precious! What a tender moment between father and daughter! I love all of William's quotes. After a very tiring 8 hours of work today, it was fun to be able to read your comments and see the pictures! Once again you made my day!
