Welcome Home James!!

Wednesday was a big day in our family.   James returned home from a successful year in New Mexico, completing his mission.  I am so proud of him and of the decisions he's made and the work that he's put into turning his life in a direction that he's proud of and so that he's headed down the paths that he wants to be on.  It's been a long road for him, but he's made good decisions.  I'm excited for him to be home and ready to start on the new chapter of his life!

It was great to see several of his friends at the airport with us to meet him.  

And then it was time to party!  It was so much fun to have so many of his friend and family friends join us for a BBQ in our beautiful shady yard Wednesday evening.  Yummy food, beautiful weather, and wonderful friends made for a very fun evening! 

Thank you for the cake Nadine!!  It was beautiful and so delicious!!!!
