Out Of Africa. . . .

These two cute people came home to us! HURRAY!!

Sorry about the quality of this picture but the camera isn't good with moving objects and it seems that Dad hasn't stopped moving since arriving home. Hubby clicked this picture at the
airport as we mauled them when they got down the escalator.

Here is Mom and she likes to have her picture taken. The day they arrived home (at 12:05 a.m.) we came to their house and spent the entire day as a family. I think that Mom was attempting to duck out and have a moment of peace in the laundry room when this pic was snapped. Sorry Mom, you are stuck with us. . . following you!


The men cooked a big breakfast for us all and it was great! Here is Dad again and he's a blur because once again he is moving. Does the man ever stop you ask? I haven't seen it yet! I'll keep you posted when he does:)


Mom is showing off another darling dress she had made for her in Africa. Although it looks like she is alone, the lawn was actually packed with people for their return party today. It was quite the fun shindig and finally a great day to enjoy the outdoors:)


And here we are all giddy with joy. We're Just a small sampling of those who were anxious for their safe arrival back home to us! Me and Bob (hubby) are wearing really cool African attire they brought back. Kitty was also sporting her African dress at church but managed to sneak away after and quickly change, while the party was going on. I thought this was a picture of just me and Bob until I loaded the pics onto the computer and low and behold, there was Kitty. . . Darn kid! I'm sure my parent's NEVER said that about me;)

I think you need to do a blog about how Bob never gets his pic taken without his fist under his chin. If you didn't know him, you would think it was glued there!!

You know, weren't mom and dad saying Friday night that they were going to strap his hands to his side one of these times? haha What is his arm resting on? The air? You looked way cute in your dress today, by the way. I loved the color on you!

Love the African duds. Congrats on the homecoming. My baby brother comes home in 5 weeks, and we can't wait.

I'm sooo glad they are home. You must be overjoyed!

Love the clothing!

All this homecoming is reminding me of when I returned from the Peace Corps. I called my brother and sister to pick me up at the airport so I could surprise my parents by just magically appearing at the door.

I'm sure your folks are going to have lots of amazing stories!

That sneaky little kitty. Maybe it was her scaring me in the garbage dumpster last week.
