I left the awesome foursome 

to go and pick up these goofies!
I *didn't* get to make out with my hubster in the airport!  
 (I've had a few people express shock I'd talk like that; with me being so modest and all.)

Come on!  
Even this modest mama has her limits and we're about 3 weeks past that limit!  I have missed that man so stinking much!

Their flight from Detroit broke records and they arrived 30 minutes early! When does that ever happen?  I pulled up to pick them up and jumped out...without the camera, in tears, just shaking!  

Sorry no pics!  I was overwhelmed!  So were they!  
 The look of recognition on their little faces as they brightened up with smiles and touched my face!  Oh, sweet babies your home!    

I noticed in the middle of the night that we didn't take into account the time difference between China and Japan and the 2 hour layover we thought they had was more like 30 something minutes!  Praise God my intelligent mate figured this out and they did make their next flight but barely!  

I was watching live as they touched down in Detroit and he actually called me the moment they were on the runway!  That was very strange but cool!

We came home earlier than expected and it was completely surprising how well the meeting between all 6 children went.  We expected Peanut to cling and be scared but she was so sweet and showered them with love and shared everything!  

We had some tears at fact that was the only time it was loud!  

We didn't take the kiddos to the airport for the meeting for two would overwhelm our 4 at home (especially anxious Sunshine) and the two new ones and we have no vehicle that will fit all of us!  

I appreciate that Nana watched the awesome foursome!  She took a few pics of the homecoming (hoping to get those soon) and then snuck right out quiet as a mouse!  

I will have pics up tomorrow or the patient with me please!
