Daddy's Home

This past week Micah was away in Switzerland. An amazing opportunity came up for him to take his hard working self away for a bit and go snowboarding in the Swiss Alps with some of his childhood friends. He wasn't gong to go until I forced him. I knew if I didn't make him, he wouldn't. He works so hard for our little family and is about to start working even harder as he begins his masters program next week so I wanted him to be able to get a trip he truly deserved. So while he was taking in the beauty that Switzerland had to offer we were missing him like crazy here in California.
I didn't expect it to be that hard but I think coming right off the holidays where we had lots of family time together it just made it almost unbearable. 
We really didn't do much of anything while he was away besides go to Disneyland once. Oh and the babes got super sick. Oh and we cried and missed Daddy. Yeah that sums up our week. 
The one day I felt normal and happy was when we decided to get off our depressing sick bottoms and make lots of special things for Daddy's return home. We wanted him to know he was missed and how much we loved him. He is such a gift to God to our family and couldn't be more blessed by this man. So we got to work and when I say we I really mean the babes as the colored, painted and even helped me bake and decorate the celebration cake. 
They love their daddy so much and couldn't help but be overjoyed watching them run to greet him at the airport last night. We are so happy to have him home again with us but are sad knowing he has to leave again for a work trip in just a few days...
So we are just going to cuddle as a family and eat celebration cake until we say goodbye again.
