We had an unexpected trip back home last month. Less than a week after welcoming Miren Elizabeth to the family, Matt got his orders that he was being deployed to Afghanistan within the week. So we hightailed it up north to say our "farewells" and "be safes" to Matt and we got to say our "hellos" and "welcome to the worlds" to Miren as a bonus. So without further adieu, here are some pictures commemorating our hellos and goodbyes.
New parents...welcome to the club.
There's more hair on that baby girl than both my kid's had at their first haircuts! Parents, Aunts and Uncles, Grandparents and cousins are all smitten with the silken haired babe.
The best. cousin. picture. ever.
The bond between these two boys makes my heart swell.
This is the look of nine year old boy contentment.
Who can resist a sweet baby foot?

Be safe Matt. We love you and your cynical self. I bet we'll still have the same old computer when you get back. I hope you can stand it.
Welcome to the family, Miren. Fasten your buckle, girl. We may be crazy but we're nothing if we're not entertaining.
