OUR FIRST GLANCE AT HER IN THE AIRPORT AS SHE CAME DOWN THE STEPS AND AROUND THE CORNER!!!! I couldn't help myself, I snapped the picture, threw the camera down and ran towards her and hugged her, cried and couldn't let go. I told myself before getting to the airport that I would WAIT and let everyone else hug and kiss her first. I have no idea what got into me but I totally forgot about that and couldn't wait to get my girl in my arms and hug her and tell her how much I love her and missed her. And to let her know HOW PROUD I AM OF HER!!!!It is going to be hard for me to "Share" her with everyone else while she is here. She has to go back Jan 2nd and these next 2 weeks are going to fly by. WHAT FUN THIS CHRISTMAS IS GOING TO BE!!!! Have a Wonderful Blessed Happy Holiday Everyone, Hugs and Kisses, Amy
AT HOME, STANDING AT ATTENTION!!!! I quick snapped this pictured because I knew I wouldn't see her in her uniform at all while she was home. The first thing she did was change and put her hair down. That's My Girl!!!!

Morning Amy,

Wow, look at that sweet girl! That photo in the airport brought tears to my eyes. How could you possibly share? That's an unreasonable expectation! Hugs, and non-stop cuddles are requirements indeed :)

Blessings and Merry Christmas to you and your family.
