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!!!

I DEFINITELY should not be reading this post the week Brian goes into the MTC!!! Too many emotions and too many tears!

So exciting! Seriously what will we do when it's our kids?! I'm guessing cry. And cry.
