Jonathan got home yesterday from his 3 month stint at Kandahar AB in Afghanistan. We are SOOOOO glad to have him home and we have picked back up as if he never left.

Cole seeing daddy for the first time. I love this picture because their huge smiles say it all. Cole definitely knew who his daddy was and has not let him out of his sight since. He kept telling Jonathan all day yesterday that he missed him so much and missed him a long time. So sweet!

The three of us in the hotel lobby. He actually got into Kansas City about midnight the night before and due to weather conditions we waited until the next morning to go and get him.

Oh, how I love these two boys! They are the light of my life!

We went to lunch at Chick-fil-a and Cole got in a little playtime and then it was off to the mall for some more playtime and shoe shopping for daddy. And for the record, I did NOT buy one thing at the mall yesterday. :-) I am just glad to have my hubby home!

The super cute banner Dani made for Jonathan's homecoming. Thank you so much Dani, it added the perfect touch.

And here are the remnants of our blizzard of 2011. I was nervous of the road conditions driving to get Jonathan, but they were perfectly clear. Yet another answered prayer! God has been so good to us and blessed us so abundantly.

We are so proud of Jonathan and the sacrifice he made (and makes everyday) to protect our country.

We love you!!

  3. Heather that picture of Cole and your husband is the most precious picture! It's such a great memory to capture. You are such a strong woman. Please tell Jonathan that even though I've never met him, thank you so much for what you do each and every day! God bless y'all.
