Since we had some extra time, we stopped at the outlets on the way home to finish up our Christmas shopping. It was so fun to walk around, just the two of us, and browse the stores. I'm glad we had a few hours to ourselves before picking Kerriann up from school.
When we were finished shopping, we ran home to eat lunch and then picked up Christiane and Alana for Kerriann's big surprise. They wanted to help videotape and be there to see her reaction.
When we got to school, Christiane, Alana and I went into Kerriann's classroom and Kevin waited outside. When the camera was all set up, Alana went outside to tell Kevin it was time to come in.
She was so excited to see her daddy! As you'll notice in the video, she has taken to calling us Kevin and Adriane. I'm sure this is just a phase, but we have been getting some curious looks out in public.
Kerriann's class made Kevin a banner and a welcome home card that had all of their hand prints in red and blue paint. Kerriann also gave Kevin a red, white and blue airplane when he walked in as you'll see in the video. She was so funny and kept waving it around and yelling "fly, fly!"
One more picture to share from this amazing day. Kerriann's letter to Santa that was posted on the door of her classroom.
I don't think any of us could have asked for a more perfect first day home for Kevin. It was so great to be reunited as a family again, and it was a great kick off for the rest of the two weeks that we would spend together.
