Excellent Weekend!

John came home on Wednesday night!

It was so nice to have him home for a long weekend. This is the first time he has been home since Thanksgiving, but it seems like it was a much longer time span. When he was home Thanksgiving weekend, there was such a whirlwind of activity; between Thanksgiving Dinner, Black Friday shopping and the baby shower...we had only a couple hours to visit. I was going to make certain this weekend was not a replay!

Thursday afternoon was spent with E and the baby. It's hard to believe the youngest member of our family is already a month old! She is getting so big and is very alert! Uncle John enjoyed holding his littlest niece. Here is a great picture of the three of them.

John and I went over to my mom's for lunch on Friday. It was such a pleasant afternoon.

John was able to catch up with friends on Saturday and Sunday. He also went by to visit with J&K and the two sweet girls. The weather could not have been more perfect, we had high temperatures in the 70's and beautiful skies.

I am so very proud of the man he has grown to be. The military has certainly built his confidence and maturity. However, he still has a sparkle in his eyes and the best smile in the world.

Forever my son, forever my baby!

So glad you had yourself a nice weekend. The weather sure was nice.

What a handsome son you have.

It does not take long for our little one to grow up. We have got to savor every moment.

To each country to pay tribute to soldiers defend their homeland. Pay tribute to the families of servicemen. To the soldiers who pay tribute to his wife and mother. Salute! !

How cool for you to have John for the weekend. He is looking good. And that baby is to die for. You are such a lucky mom.

And Shay will always be my baby, even when she has babies of her own.

Handsome young man, there Mama. Congrats on getting to spend time with him and your other family members too. I just love family -- especially mine!

We heard that both of my sons-in-law are getting out of the military in about six months, so we are excited to have them back home with us.
