ON August 17th the day FINALLY came! Carter was coming HOME!
He had quite a crowd to welcome him! And we were NOT quiet! Haha!
Mom was first in line to give him a HUGE hug!!!
This was a long time coming! And it was awesome!
Dad was next!!
And sister was thrilled to see him and get that first hug too!
Brother just wanted a silly selfie for social media! Haha! Have to announce to all he is home!
Then it was time for a few nice pictures! The siblings are all back together!
The family together again! :)
His best friends from high school Tanner and Erika came out to welcome him home too!
As well as Gamma and Papa Crismon and Dakota!
His Aunt Brooke and Uncle Mark made it out too! :)
Looking good on his new iphone Dad got for him! And of course it was Kamal calling him! This is a daily occurance! Haha!
Our missionary is home!
This tie is one that was made for him by Elder Dickson!
After leaving the airport, we spent some time out running errands as Carter left A LOT in Florida to make his bags lighter! We also went for a bite to eat at Black Bear Diner before meeting up with President Davies for Carter to be released. That meeting was bitter sweet. It was wonderful to hear details about his mission service he shared with us and President Davies before he was officially released. It was not an easy thing for him to remove his Missionary Tags but President Davies urged him to place them somewhere he would see them daily as a reminder. He also gave Carter his photo that had been hanging in the Stake office there and told him how proud of him he was, as are WE!! Welcome Home Elder Crismon!!!
