We're Home!

We all made it home to Texas Wed. morning around 5am. I can't tell you how happy we were to be home. I missed my children so much. I have to say the flight home was terrible. Jolea cried most of the trip. She did not like having to sit in her seat and put the seat belt on. Then when we arrived in LA we had no ticket for Jolea for our flight to DFW. Someone had torn her ticket off at one of the airports. Also, when cathay pacific changed our flight from Friday to Tuesday, they didn't book us a flight from LA to Dallas. So, we had no ticket for Jolea and no flight booked to get home. We were so exhausted and frustrated that Joey decided he was just going to buy more tickets. When he went to the AA counter, byt the grace of God, she was able to help us, and got us on the next flight out which was leaving in 20 minutes without having to buy anymore tickets. When we arrived at the airport in Dallas we had a very unexpected crowd waiting for us in baggage claim. I couldn't believe everyone was up so early to meet us. My sister took pictures so as soon as she sends them to me I'll post some photos.

Vacation bible school was going on at our church this week so we went to that this week. Jolea really loves her big sister, and Breanna couldn't wait to show her off to everyone. The first night Randall brought Jolea up in front of everyone on the stage and everyone prayed over her. She loved it and was such a ham. She was making faces at all the kids. Last night they had fun night with bounce houses. Jolea got inside and really had no idea what to do but she had a blast. She pretty much just rolled around inside. I tried to get her to jump but she had more fun rolling around. Now for some photos!

Hi guys,
I am so glad you finally have Jolea home where she belongs. I loved following your journey and can't wait to see the updates as your new journey begins!
Maybe we can get our girls together in the spring!!!
