Yay ... the day we have been anticipating for quite some time has arrived! She's here, she's home, we're so happy. We wanted to make sure she knew we were happy to see her, so we made a big ugly sign! (It was supposed to be cute, but, oh well!!!) We burned the edges to give it more of an "outback" kind of a feel ... mostly it was just fun to play with fire, the kids were sooooo enthralled with the process - what have I done???
The girls made a couple more signs to put on her door to her bedroom - can you tell how happy we were to have her home?
And ... there she is:
Hugs, smiles, laughter from all the kids, EXCEPT ...
... The King, who had to keep his distance. He sat on the counter with Nana, eating crackers. It was either that or cry, he was a little out of sorts. He'll warm up soon, though, I am sure!
And, of course, she came bearing licorice ... our favorite Aussie treat. When are they going to start selling all these wonderful flavors here?
To celebrate, we went out to dinner, and you can tell the kids are still tackling Debbie with enthusiasm!
The King kept his distance though, I am sure he will warm up to Debbie soon!
