Our plan was to meet them at the airport. I wanted to get pictures of Abby and Claire seeing Marty and Malachi for the first time (Marty and Althea - my mother-in-law - have been in Uganda for two weeks) and of course, we were late. The flight came in at 2:34 pm. We parked the car at 2:36, jumped out of the car, grabbed the girls and ran to the doors, we didn't even put our coats on. When we got inside I handed Mackenzie to Michael got out my camera and had it ready to go as Emma and I ran for the baggage claim area. As we got closer I could see them - we'd just missed the reunion. I was so sad. I felt really bad for letting Abby down and not getting a ton of pictures. But I couldn't feel too bad because I was too excited to see Malachi! I really just wanted to hug him and squeeze him but I was happy to get a high-five. :)

Opening our present for Malachi. He really liked the hat. This is my favorite picture I got that day. I LOVE his smile!
Big sister Claire, Mackenzie, Emma and Malachi. If only Mackenzie wasn't trying to get up off the couch. Emma should've held on to her a little tighter, like she is to Malachi. See the grip she's got on his shoulder? Like I said, she really liked him. :)
We love you Malachi! Welcome Home!
