There's No Place Like Home

Immediately after Ryan's baptism, we headed to my parents' home for Rachel's homecoming party.  We had a Wizard of Oz themed party, because "There's No Place Like Home."  My mom is the queen of details, so there were many fun decorations at the party.


A fun Oz welcome sign greeted guests at the front door.


And the Wicked Witch of the East.


The kids colored a yellow brick road.


We had a tornado.

A Rainbow

Many of Dorothy's friends...

And her little dog, too.


A rainbow cake.

Fruit Rainbow

 Rainbow plates and napkins.

And even Auntie Em in a magic ball. (Which Emily found to be a little Creepy). :)


My favorite was the rainbow made of cacti.  Rachel LOVES cacti since serving in Arizona.


But most importantly, were all of the family and friends who came to celebrate Rachel's homecoming!  We love her and missed her so much! We are happy she is home, and are proud of her hard work on her mission.

I had a blast Saturday, it really is like we've always been part of each others' lives. Sadly, it was a 'whirlwind' of a visit.
