Welcome Home Elder Bishop!

The long awaited September 3rd, 2008 finally came!! We all carpooled in a 15 passenger van, 3 babies and all, to go to LAX to pick up our little missionary! After what seemed like an eternity of waiting, he finally made his way around the corner and there he was! Two years of waiting and he is finally home. Korea has given us back our Kristopher! We were all so excited and anxious for his arrival. When Kris and his mom embraced there was such a tender moment of pure joy and happiness to be together again! I can't imagine the relief of having him home safe and now in your arms! We were also extra excited to introduce Kris to his nieces and nephew that were born while he was gone. It was so sweet to see the love on his face for these new babies in his life and how excited he was to play with them and shower them with hugs and kisses. For probably about a year now, we have been showing Kaden Kris's picture on our refrigerator so it was cute to see him recognize him and call him by name. We are so proud of his great sacrifice and the hard work that he gave to the Lord and the people of Korea for two years of his life, and are glad to have him home!We love our Uncle Kris!!!

A Visit From Grandpa and Grammy!

My dad left his "home" in Africa to come to his "real" home and payed us all a nice visit. The days always seem too short and the time passes by much too fast, but amidst the chaos of babyland, it is always nice to have some quality time with my parents and especially my dad when he is home. So of course we had to head to the beach for some sandy fun!
Kaden and Gracey helped Grandpa dig a hole to play in. It offered much enjoyment and a break from chasing them around!The tide came up and filled the hole with water so they had their personal swimming pool which they absolutely loved!!
Maddy is in Grammy heaven!Grammy and Kaden enjoying the waves! (Uncle JJ I think we might have a beach bum in the making!)Maddy could not get enough of the sand, especially in her mouth. They all go through the sand eating time, I stopped trying to prevent it and decided that it wouldn't kill her! She enjoyed the tide coming up and the cold water on her little or should I say plump legs! Gracey is content in her domain, "The Beach!" and too cute for words!There is a hand full of sand in those little grippers!Cousin Fun! Skye showed Maddy how to get around in the sand!
We miss you already Grandpa and Grammy. We had a fun visit and can't wait for the next one!! Love you!
