I have been a BIG crazy emotional mess.
SO many feelings and I am trying to embrace and understand them.
I have to say that I did not expect the extreme emotions that I have felt this week. I thought I would share a few photos... of course, many are not in order so just know, I may skip around.
Waiting at the airport for her to come home. We missed her so much!
We were so excited.
|Devan and Ty are buddies. I love these two. PS- they had a birthday TODAY. Photos of this tomorrow...|
Zach is so happy she is home. They are VERY close and they have so many "inside" jokes.
Made this sign with my new TC Alpha foiled gold (produced for JoAnn Fabrics and Crafts. *I did the entire banner and had lots for alphas left (TC Studio Gold)
WELCOME HOME MCKAY
Leann was adorable and brought Santa hats for EVERYONE to the airport. She wanted it to be fun. I love her family.
It seems like we waited FOREVER for her to get off the airplane.
Gentry made this sign and we decorated the house, trees and garage to welcome her home (even though her plane got in at 7:30 pm) Monday night.
Yes, we made sure she would NOTICE us.
This is Shane her "other" mother's son. They both are right off their missions. He got home on Thursday from Spain. This is her other brother and I love that EVERYONE came to support her coming home. To me, it's all about being together. I am so thankful that McKay has her dad and his family who love and support the girls so much.
|I was just so excited and thankful. It was such a crazy tearful day. This week has been so hard. I will not dwell on it. I wish I was feeling "normal" but I don't.|
This is McKay right as she got off the escalator. I hugged her so much. I felt so happy and kept thinking of Tyler. I knew he wanted to be there with us. I know he still was. I was a BIG emotional mama. Oh how I ADORE this sweet girl.
The WELCOME HOME committee.
The boys prior to her coming home, enjoyed video games... yes, I'm sure to "calm" their excitement. ha!
Gentry made the most amazing signs. I sure loved the help and that everyone was EXCITED.
I even sported reindeer ears.
Devan and I hanging up yellow bows. Every one of our neighbors knew she was coming home.
Sorry, I know out of order. SO many more photos too. I just have been taking it moment by moment. I have been just dealing with emotions and emotions. I am so happy and thankful she is home. I just wish I felt more "me." I am trying hard to face, accept and go forward in my new journey. I have a newfound understanding, love and deep respect for others who are single parents, widowed or divorced and feel like life has changed and shifted directions for them.
I am MOST thankful for my sweet McKay and her love, light and presence in our home. She is being very loving and kind to me.
