The night before his homecoming.

I know this is a few months early but I couldn't help myself!! LOL

'Twas the night before homecoming, when all trough the house
Not a creature was stirring, except me, I was nervous.
My new outfit was hung in the closet with care,
In hopes that my Airman soon would be there.
The children were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of hugs and kisses from daddy danced in their heads.
I decided to lay down and rest for awhile,
Tomorrow is an exciting day, we will be there in style. 

When out on my night stand there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from my bed to see what was the matter.
I flip open my phone and look at the time,
Oh my goodness we over slept!
We are running behind!!

Away to the closet I flew like a flash.
Pulled on my new jeans, and a top to match.

I run to get the children whom are already awake.
Big sister had dressed them, she fixed my mistake!

We pile in the truck to head to his work.
We are minutes away, I might go bezerk!

The kids are all dressed in their new tshirts looking snazzy,
reading "Get out of my way, I'm here to get my daddy!"

When what to my wondering eyes should appear,
But the blue van carrying our Airman!  It's here! 

I stood back and watched as the kids jumped up and down
I'll give them their moment, I can wait my turn for now. 

More rapid than eagles his courses they came,
He whistled and shouted and called them by name,
Hey Reyes, Hey Emma, and Hailey too,
Come give daddy a kiss, oh boy I've missed you.

He kisses each baby and holds them so tight.
They hug him back with all of their might. 

He stands up and looks at me, I have tears in my eyes.
He wraps his arms around me, I let out a sigh.
Safe in my arms, my man is finally here.
Now I know, I have nothing to fear.

We pile in the truck for the drive to our house
He pulls in the driveway to see the signs the kids made.
"Welcome home daddy, we missed you so much!
Now take out the trash, mommy needs a nap!"
