We are coming home today!
We arrived in Dorchester around 6:15PM today. Matt, Shelly, Emily, Hayden, and Wyatt were at the house waiting for us. They had brought a "Welcome Home" balloon and had a beautiful bouquet of flowers sitting on the dining room table. Shelly made 2 pans of lasagna and a wilted salad (just like the kind grandma Johnson use to make). Crystal arrived shortly afterwards and had brought a oreo dessert along and then Mike, Roxann, Rachael, and Elizabeth arrived with garlic bread and a vegetable. We had a wonderful dinner with our family. The only thing that would have made it more complete was if Nicole and Brook could have been there (they were out shopping for a prom dress for Brook).
It was so good to see everyone and so special that they put a welcome home dinner together for us. It was great to walk into the house and have it all lit up with a delicious meal in the oven and everyone here to welcome us home. John and I are so blessed to have our wonderful family!
After they left we unloaded the car (ugh) and put most of the items away before I hopped in the tub for a nice warm bubbly bath. It felt good to be home and to crawl into our own bed. We both slept wonderful - it is good to be home. As they say "THERE IS NO PLACE LIKE HOME"!
