Home Sweet Home

My fabulous husband sent me a gorgeous tropical arrangement on the left. His sister and her family also sent a beautiful and bright floral arrangement!
Thank you!

Tyler and I made it home Thursday afternoon. Here he is taking a quick nap at the hospital before we were discharged.

And now awake ready to go.
All dressed up in his homecoming outfit.

My welcome home committee consisted of Grandma, Trevor & McKenzie. They showed up to help load up and bring us home.

Trevor wanted to hold Tyler while we waited for the nurse.

And since the nurse took a little while, the kids decided to try out my hospital bed.

It went UP and DOWN and UP and DOWN....
they were having WAY TOO MUCH FUN.

Trevor informed me they had been busy making lots of surprises for me when I got home. He was instructed NOT to tell me ANYTHING about it. I sat with him in the back while we drove home. I tried to get some of the surprises out of him on the way, but I got scolded by him "Mommy, you'll just have to wait until we get home!" So I begged, "Please, just tell me one little surprise?!?!" So he said, "OKAY..." and he leaned in toward me and whispered in my ear:

"I love you mommy".

Awwww.... and I didn't ask for anything more.

This is what we saw when we pulled into the driveway. Blue "It's A Boy" balloons on the mailbox...

Welcome Home sign from Trevor in the front window...

Decorated door by McKenzie...

Tons of balloons hanging from the ceiling...

And streamers and a CONGRATULATIONS sign in the entry way.

I got a fabulous delivery from a friend from Cookies By Design, and a gorgeous bouquet from another friend that she made from plants in her own backyard!
Thank you!

I have an amazing family and amazing friends! We had a delicious supper delivered by my friend Kim, so our first evening home was so relaxing! Thank you everyone for all your help and for thinking of me.
