How wonderful to have you son home for a while! Please tell him thank you for all he does for us and that we are all thinking of him, and all the soldiers, while they are away from home.

And thank you to all the Moms and Dads who are worrying about them while they are gone.

I am so happy to hear that your son is home - his service is much appreciated. I am fairly new to reading your TRs, so I wasn't aware that he was gone. DH was in Iraq for a year - and that was horrible - I can't imagine how hard it would be to have your son there... (((hugs))) So, is he home for good now? Or will he be going back?

Looks like you had a wonderful dinner together!

Brenda, I've said it before and I'll say it again... I was SO VERY HAPPY to see you all together.

Thank you for sharing the photos here on the DIS.

I did have a bit of a giggle where you mentioned that Em pulled out her Magic Band and the accompanying photo. My, what hairy arms you have Em?

Again, thank you to your son for his selfless service and thank you to YOU and the rest of your family for staying strong and supportive of his efforts.

Oh Brenda what gorgeous family photos - you must be so happy to be spending some time with your son
I remember when we were hopping onto the Snow White ride at DL and he was trying to call you and you were losing your cell signal - I was beside myself! - I remember being over the moon that you got to speak to each other
Your photos have totally made my day

I know just what you mean by not allowing Em to go off anywhere. We're the same way with Mackie, lucky for me she doesn't really like to go anywhere without one of us.

We both bit the bullet this last trip while Maroo and I went on ToT (Mackie HATES that ride), Mackenzie went to get a cinnamon roll she had been wanting to get. Leave it to my daughter to put carbs before her own feelings of security!!

I'm glad Em made it back to the room safely, another reason I'm grateful for Disney, you feel a bit safer there with your kiddos than any other vacation spot.

I loved seeing the pics of your son again, you have a beautiful family. Will you get to see him again before he deploys back out?

And Ms. Kat, I know exactly what you mean by telling your son to call. I do the same thing with my son and next time he tells me he's an adult I'm gonna use your line. I don't care how much of an adult he is, I still want to know he's gotten somewhere safely.
