Okay, so enough lallygagging around, here comes another one!

Okay, so my husband is finally home and so is Stars(I am the Angel here). She might disagree, but just so this is all clear, this is Audrey, not Chrystal. Anyway, our husbands are finally home and we are both relishing the time that we are getting with them, just to explain the absences that have been taking place. So many adjustments and all, but we are loving it.
The day that Gerry came was so hectic, getting the house cleaned up again, because heaven forbid the kids let it stay that way for a week, let alone one day, getting ready and all pretty for him as he comes off the plane and getting Dean and the kids ready to go. Chrystal came with us with Jason and Greenlee so that she knew where the airport was. Just so you know, Greenlee only met Gerry one time and saw him on the computer a couple of times, but as we were waiting she was getting more and more impatient(so was Dean for that matter, he wanted Daddy) and we couldn't figure out why. We thought maybe she was bored. Then the plane landed and we got to see the soldiers file off the plane, we were all looking for Gerry, of course I saw him and knew him the minute he stepped off the plane. Such a site for sore eyes, but enough mushy stuff. We had to wait for about an hour to an hour and half(at least it was better than the two that we were expecting) and then got to line up at the ropes for them to come in, and finally, we get to see what she was getting antsy about. She wanted her Mister Gerry. You have to understand, up to that point, I was her Miss Audrey and she would go through withdraws over seeing me, even if it was only a couple of days, so I got alittle jealous. She is a cutie, if you met her, you would understand. She started to throw a prize of a fit, like most three years olds still in their terrible two's, that just make you want to curl up into a dark hole and not come out for year until she is no longer like that. Finally we got out of her what it was and just looked at each other and laughed. So, finally, Gerry gets into the terminal and we have to stand for a bit more. They finally let us get to our spouses and they get mobbed, imagine, not seeing your husband or wife for a year or longer, stinks, so, yes, some of them might get tackled when we get to them. By the time we get passed them, I have to watch and keep an eye out because they were the largest group and it was very crowded, but he is very tall and just stood in one spot, making it very easy to get to him. Dean immediatly jumps into Daddy's arms and wouldn't let go of him, making it hard to hug him for me, but I don't mind sharing for the moment. Then he puts him down, and hugs Chrystal and Jason jumps into his arms and Greenlee just stands there. She is alittle shy of strangers, but keep in mind that she wanted her Mister Gerry, not mine, hers. She finally lets him pick her up after a few minutes and she was stuck on him like glue, that is until her Daddy came home a week later. Well, more later, it is getting late, have fun reading!

I forgot my camera, I was in such a rush to be there when his plane landed that I forgot to put it in my purse. Sorry, but I have tons of pictures on my myspace of the Nascar race that we went to, check them out if you want.
