Welcome Home Leland

 Yesterday we welcomed Leland home from Afghanistan.  It was so good to see him and to have him home safe.  He was suppose to arrive at 2:45 at the air guard base near the airport.  We got there at 2:28 ( I looked at my phone to make sure we weren't late) and the plane was coming in we made it just in time. 

I made two signs for the boys to hold.  I knew Ashton would hold his but I wasn't so sure about Noah and sure enough he didn't want anything to do with it. 

We got to see them come off the airplane and both Ashton and Leland were so excited to see each other, they were both just grinning it was quite cute. 

Ashton was telling Uncle Leland he is 4 now.  On our way home later that night Jason asked Ashton who is favorite uncle was Leland or Aaron.  Sorry Aaron, Leland is the favorite uncle once again.  That didn't take him long !

Noah was a daddy's boy all day he clung to Jason and wouldn't let go.  It was quite cute normally he is stuck to me so it was nice to not have him attached to me. 

We hung around for a few minutes while Leland was interviewed about 3 times from different news stations and a newspaper then I insisted on a group shot of everyone before we left. 

We headed to mom's house to have some food and visit.  It is so nice to know that Leland is home and safe and the family is all together once again.  Aaron was the only one missing, he was in Vegas for the weekend.
