I'm so glad when Daddy comes home,




glad as I can be!



Ben finally set foot on Utah soil Tuesday afternoon when his year long deployment to Afghanistan came to an end. Paige and I were there at the Air Base in Salt Lake to welcome him home. We are both happy to have her Daddy back at last.

those pictures are so precious! I can't wait to get some of my own, hopefully Sadie will do something equally as cute and not be shy and stubborn! Congrats on having him home.

The pictures look like they belong in Time magazine - especially the first one.

So - I'm guessing you won't be blogging for a while. Enjoy your homecoming. ;o)

I cried as I looked at your pictures (pregnancy hormones). By the way, that camera was a good choice. So glad Ben is home. And so happy for you and Paige. Also grateful for Ben and for serving our country. How is your new place? I've been meaning to call.
