This is beyond a very special homecoming for this amazing family. The Richardet family has FINALLY finished a year deployment and it came at just the right time for them. Andrew came home on the day they were going to celebrate their son Nicholas' 1st birthday:) Even though the date change quit a few times I know that Chrissy is so happy that her family is finally back together and complete. She had a feeling that if she was running behind that some how the buses would be on top of their game and be ahead of schedule which was very true when they arrived to base early. They didn't want to let each other go when they were reunited again. I had to hold back my tears since I know she was so ready for this deployment to come to an end. We had talked about not having the kids in the sun while we waited and we would have Andrew come around the house to the playground where Hailey and Nicholas were playing to surprise them:) Hailey is the biggest daddy's girl as I was told and she was acting so shy when she saw Andrew. I guess she couldn't believe that he was really home:):) Welcome Home Andrew!
