Homecoming!!!!

Danny will be coming home on Tuesday, January 19th at about 9:00 p.m.


He will speak at the Muskrat Springs ward on Sunday, January 24th at 9:00 a.m. The church is located at 5375 S 5900 W in Hooper. This is the new stake center across from the Chambers' house, the same one where Tami and Andy had their wedding receptions. It is not the same building he spoke at when he left.


We are very excited for Danny to come home. Jan spent the day washing sheets and vacuuming carpets and getting Danny's room ready for him to come home. She found a tiny missionary name tag that said "Future Missionary" on it. It's hard to believe that our tiny little Danny has almost completed his mission and is coming home.


Looking back, it seems like his time has gone quickly, although we feel like we haven't seen him in a VERY LONG TIME!!!! It seems like forever ago that we dropped him off for his mission. As we were leaving, we caught a glimpse of Danny and we all waved goodbye for 2 years. He tried to pull out his phone to text us, but he didn't have it. Not being able to text was one of the hardest adjustments for him.


When Danny left, Lila was 3, the twins were 1, and Benson was just 4 months old. Since then, we have had Alex and Molly join our family. Emily and her kids are coming to visit and will be here when Danny gets home. It will be great to finally have almost everyone together again (we will miss Johnny).


It has been such a blessing to have Danny serve a mission. We can tell that he has grown so much, but we hope that he's the same old goofy Danny. We are so excited to see him again!!!

A year ago yesterday our Danny came home from his mission. What a fun year it has been to have Shanna join our family. I miss the missionary emails each week, but I have loved the past year and the hugs.
