He's Home!!!!!!!!

November 10, 2014 - Elder Garrett Tebbs is scheduled to arrive on American Airlines Flight 2423 at 1:35 pm, Terminal 1.  We went out early Monday morning in the frigid cold (sub-30-degrees) and hung up a few welcome-home signs.

I kept myself busy until I picked Grayson up from WXHS and we drove to the airport where John, my parents, Kelly Passey and a couple of Garrett's returned-missionary friends and Kerra met up.

First sighting!!!  Then... I couldn't wait to run right to him and hug him fiercely tight.  We were all in tears.  2 years is a LONG time!

He couldn't believe how much Grayson had changed and grown.  He's almost as tall as Garrett now.  He also was thrilled to see his grandparents who help support him and Papa, who never missed a week writing to him the whole 2 years.

He really is home and it is AMAZING!!!  He has been SO missed!

I cried when I saw the video on facebook! So glad he is home safe, but I am really going to miss his weekly letters and testimony. Thank you for sharing with me!
