Thanks for letting me take a little break the last week so I could spend time with Travis and Miss P. We have definitely enjoyed being a family again.
I wanted to share some pictures of Travis' homecoming.
He got home JUST after midnight on the 9th.
We got to the Special Events Center (SEC) on post at 930 pm for what was suppose to be a ceremony at 1130 but they landed a few minutes late so the ceremony was backed up to midnight. The SEC was completely packed but we still had a very special reunion!
Here are pics of our night.
I took this picture with my phone so P moved and made it a little blurry but this is the sign I made for P to have at the homecoming.
I had a friend of mine and fellow Army wife who is a photographer (Maddox and Co. Photography) come and take pictures of our reunion and I am so glad that she did. Here are some of the shots she took.
Miss P got all dressed up to meet her daddy and she sure look CUTE! :)
Interested in her sign.
The SEC was all decked out for Christmas so it made for cute pictures.
Look at those cheeks!
Here is a shot of the two of us before the ceremony.
Have to get a picture with the giant American flag in the background as well.
This is my friend Kim. Her husband was on the same SFAT team as Travis and we hung out quite a bit during this deployment. Needless to say, we were VERY eager for our boys to come home!
I was worried I would be a hot mess that night and I did good! This was the ONLY time I got teary eyed that night and it was when they played "Proud to be an American" right before the ceremony started and our soldiers marched in.
If you can't tell, we are eagerly waiting for them to march in. We had a decent place to stand and then all the last minute people got there and we were completely blocked by tons of people and signs so we were having to stand on our tippy toes and around people to see them march in.
It took Travis a few minutes to find us but once he did it was great!!
This was taken RIGHT as he walked up to P and I.
And can I just say- reunion kisses are the BEST! :)
Here is a shot of the Miss P meeting daddy for the first time in real life. Love the look at her face!
Seeing daddy without his cover on.
Such a happy smile!
Their faces are priceless!
We MAY have snuck a few more kisses in.
Miss P LOVED daddy's velcro on his uniform!
This was our first official family.
Again, taken with my phone so it isn't so great but that's ok.
A family picture that the photographer took.
Daddy and P showing off her sign.
Oh, how I love these smiles!!!!
We have had a fabulous time the past week and Miss P took to Travis right away!
She definitely knew that Travis was daddy and has had no issues with him what so ever.
Travis has jumped right into his role as daddy with feedings, diaper changes, getting her up in the morning and more! It's GREAT! lol
I LOVE seeing them play together and laugh. It is the best sight in the world!
We've made a few fun memories already by visiting the Denver Aquarium and then we went to the zoo here in the Springs the other night to see all the Christmas lights.
I am looking forward to all the other fun memories we make along the way!
