Homeward Bound!!!

Finally, after 6 months of paper chasing, three mths waiting for our 171, two and a half months after being logged in and five weeks waiting for travel approval, Gracie is coming home!! Can I hear an AMEN!! Praise God from whom all blessings flow!!
I am finally going to get to hold my baby.They should arrive tomorrow around 3:30. I ended up hiring a van to bring them home. As much as I want to be there, I really don't want to drag four kids and myself down to the airport. They would also have to miss a half day of school and it's only been 4 days since they started. I will see them once they get here and hopefully it won't as hectic as the airport.

Enjoy some pics from yesterday!! Behold the Elvis hair in all it's glory!!!

Good job with the hair, Dad! :) (At least it's combed right!!??)
