Daddy's Home!!!

After 6 1/2 months Tom came home yesterday. It was Amazing, Wonderful, Exciting, and exhilirating all in one (yeah, maybe that's a little over the top, but I don't know how else to explain how great it is to have him home again.) I feel "whole" again.

I love this picture because it truly shows the support and love we got from friends the whole time he was gone. Mattie and a Rachel (a nieghbor).

Tom walking up. At the point the kids just started running towards him yelling "Daddy, Daddy!"

First Hug

First Kiss.

Tom had a rose for me, Emma, Mattie and Hazel, and candy for Sam. Everyone had tears in their eyes, even the kids.

Hazel not sure if this is her dad who she saw on Skype all the time. Now all she does is walk around saying "Daddy, Daddy." He has to hold and comfort her as well.

Going home!


  1. :) This makes me teary-eyed, you guys. And I'm smilin' ear to ear. So glad you're back safe and sound, Tom. Love you guys.

  2. I got teary eyed too! I remember those exact same feelings, and you're right, it is over the top! I'm so glad he home.
    PS- you look fantastic Keriann!!
