Mike spent the last week in New York for a business trip, and hooo did the kids miss him. Every night I was asked, “How many more sleeps until Daddy gets back?” Yesterday was his big return, and the kids spent the morning making him a sign:

making daddy's sign

James was especially into it:

coloring daddy's sign

And they were very proud and excited to hold it at the airport for Mike to see:

welcome home, Daddy

We’re all happy Mike is home!

happy with Daddy

Famous LEGO

~Mike went to the LEGO store in NYC to bring the kids back sets, and while he was there, he sent me pictures of some of the novelty sets the store had, like Big Bang Theory, Ghostbusters, and The Simpsons.
