WELCOME HOME!

My younger brother Jake returned home from his mission Tuesday night!! He served for two years in the Toronto, Cananda mission where he spoke Mandarin(Crazy). We are so HAPPY to have him back and so freaken proud of him for his dedication and hard work!! He was an amazing missionary and an awesome example to us all. Since his flight didn't come in till like 10:20 p.m. Tues night Brooke, Jess, me, Jacks and their kids decided to go to dinner to kill some time. It was such a long day, I would just randomly scream all day long, ha. After going to dinner we went to the airport where all his cute friends were waiting along with the whole Firth family. It was the neatest thing ever to see him coming down the stairs with a HUGE smile on his face!! We love you Jake!





Jake looked so good, so much more grown up, it kinda feaked me out actually. This was his first time meeting his niece Sayer!!





We have so many things to introduce to Jake... so we decided to have a big sleepover Friday night at Jess and Brookes where we will be playing the Wii, guitar hero, watching all the latest movies and catchen up on the last two years!!

Jake looks so great! I just re-lived that moment in my life. It was one of the best! Coming home is the most comforting feeling, especially when you come home to an amazing family like yours! Welcome home Jake!

You will love having him home. My little bro got home in March from Mexico City. It is so much fun to see how grown up they have become.
