Planning, anticipating, and THRILLED!!

The word is out….DADDY IS ON HIS WAY HOME!!!  Yay!  It’s definitely time.  We have missed him so much!  We look forward to spending time with him.  In the meanwhile, we are busy planning and preparing for his homecoming sometime this week!  I looked at my calender this morning, and found the day of Daddy’s arrival covered in purple smiley faces.  I thought it was too cute!  I know a little princess who is bursting with love and excitement!  She cannot wait to take him down, and cover him with kisses (me too)!


I am anxious to see Nathan’s reaction.  I am not entirely sure he will know what is going on.  I am afraid he thinks his Daddy is the computer!  He always stops at the computer, reaches for the mouse, and says, “Dada! Da da da!” I think it goes without saying, but we are SO EXCITED!!!  Yipee!!



As a side note, we also heard where our next assignment will be.  We are thrilled, but Brian told me I can’t announce it on the blog yet, so I guess you all will have to wait in suspense!  At least until he gives me the okay!  What a great week this is going to be!  I can already tell!!!

    Nat – I am so excited that Bri gets to come home soon!!! I can’t imagine how much you’ve missed him (and the kids) but it sounds like the Lord has really protected him while on assignment. It was so fun to spend time with Katie – I miss her of course! I just have to say that I think you two Hatt girls have to be the cutest girls! I loved hearing all the details on how you were doing from Katie!!! 🙂 Have a great holiday season with your family home together!!! Post pics of his homecoming 🙂

    That’s a cute welcome home sign! I bet Kennedy was beside herself when she finally got to see her daddy. Glad he’s home safe. Love all the fun pictures. Can’t wait to see more from Brian’s homecoming.
