Now, these are the pictures from when daddy came home....actually the morning after because the night he actually flew in all the power was out in our neighborhood & it was late so the kids were tucked in bed pretty quickly by candle light & the homecoming festivities were delayed a few hours. I am completely aware that my boy's hair is entirely too rock-star long, that his smile isn't perfect in this picture & that my baby has a little spittle on the side of her mouth & if you look closely in the last picture you'll notice my boy is playing with a pink doll. This is how it really was people. And I like to keep it real. They were so excited for the "China-bear" t shirts that they put them on immediately & if I remember correctly, I believe they slept in them that night.
The baby was ECSTATIC over the panda bear daddy brought her.this guy if you have followed the blog for a while.....but don't let your eyes play tricks on you - they are not the same. We lost former china bear & this is his "brother." Also known as "china bear." Apparently these stuffed animals that these kids grow to be so fond of CAN, in fact, be replaced.
