After 15 LONG months....

Well it's been a whirlwind couple of weeks here. I have been busy busy busy. I have been making more cakes, actually got some stamping done, but most of all I was getting ready for my hubby's unit of 400+ soldiers to come home after 15 months! YAY!!!! Here are some pics from the ceremony where we welcomed the first plane which had 230+ soldiers. My hubby was one of them! *grin*
Seeing these pictures make me so proud! My hubby was way in the back and I had a lady standing in front of me with her sign so I wasn't able to get a pic until after all the soldiers were in formation.
The National Anthem was being played and snapped a quick picture before putting my hand over my heart.

This is the Brigade Commander giving his speech to the "Kodiaks" (That's hubby's battalion) his speech was simple, "Welcome Home, Welcome Home (crowd cheering), You're all awesome, you're all heroes, Stay Safe, Go meet your loved ones, Well done, Hooah!" (and the crowd goes running) I love it when they keep it short and sweet. *grin*

And my favorite picture in the bunch:

It was a LONG 15 months, but he is finally HOME!!!!! YAY!!!

I will post some projects and cakes in the next couple of days so be looking for those. I thought these wonderful pictures deserved a post of their own. *giddy grin*

Now to go get ready for my daughter to come home. Can you beleive she is going to be 13 in less then a week? Crazy!
