Home.

It's been another busy day. Because I was determined to get the video done last night, I didn't get to bed until almost 3am. I was set on not getting out of bed until 11am because I was so tired, but at 6am the Darlings were awake. Darn time change. Haha! We did manage to stay in bed until 8:30am though! Mama and I had a coffee date this morning (in MY kitchen! :)) while Cale played Xbox for a little bit. Not too much longer the day started and just kept going!

We had lots of visitors and started going through stuff. It was busy and we were exhausted, but it's been so great! A group of our friends came by today and helped get some stuff done, and we had some visiting time in. Kathy (Cale's mom) spent the day with us and to celebrate being home, we ordered pizza! :)

Cale has been doing awesome. He's been walking around the house! Sometimes he still uses his walker, but I've been hiding it! ;) He uses the walls and whatever else he can grab onto, but he's doing it!

So...some of you haven't heard that we have a cat! In August 08', I had told Cale one night out of desperateness that I either needed him to give me a baby or a dog-I needed one of them. We got a cat. Both of us really wanted a baby and a dog, but it wasn't a good idea at that time. We went to the SPCA the next day and picked out a really sweet kitten that Cale named Scratch. He's been living with Mama since December 09' so now he's back with us! Also, Basil has been here in Kennewick waiting for us, so Joe brought him. The whole family is together again! I love it!!! Pictures soon! :)

Here are some pictures of the Darling home. Enjoy!

We are so blessed. It's so so so good to finally be home! Thank you to everyone that helped make this happen. I know some of you reading this, spent a lot of time helping out or in prayer. You are amazing and we are so very thankful for you!
