Welcome Home, Major Chandler

 Chris didn't make it home for Bryce Eleanor's birthday party.  However, he arrived today!

Amelia and Bryce Eleanor greeted him at the airport.  Amelia says she hasn't let go of her daddy since he arrived.  We are all so grateful to have him home!

I didn't post pictures of B.E.'s birthday party on Saturday, but it was a huge success.  Amelia outdid herself with the decorating and all of the kids (and adults) had a great time.  The theme was Under the Sea because of B.E.'s fascination with Ariel.

I loved Amelia's chandelier...dinglehoppers, according to Scuttle...

      Ariel: A dinglehopper!
Etymology: From the Disney Movie The Little Mermaid when the seagull Scuttle calls a fork a dinglehopper.
