Emma and Brooks had more attention and love then they could ever want. However, it made me feel so, so special when I got back. On the way home from the airport Brooks just kept leaning over to look at me (I sat in the back between him and Emma) and Emma held my hand all the way home. Then once I got home I was instructed by Emma that I had to wait downstairs till she went potty because she had all kinds of decorations that were just for me because she missed me so much. When I walked upstairs it was the sweetest thing I'd ever seen. The banner over the fireplace made me cry. Not only did she make it just for me but she did it all by herself minus the Welcome on it although she did add the smiley faces (she says Brooks helped...I'm sure he scribbled on it here and there).
Up close...We missed you! I cried!
A tulip just for mommy!
More watermelons for me...
There were more watermelons over by the front & back door but I somehow forgot to take a picture of those. This really was all her idea, she just told Nana and Nanny what she wanted to make next. She would paint, write and color all day long if we'd let her. Hopefully she'll be more creative then her mommy!
She sure did make me feel like the BEST mommy in the whole wide world (and I'm far from it)!! If she only really knew how much I missed her and Brooks!! I love them so, so much!
