Magical Homecomings for the Holidays

   Christmas is a time when families separated by miles reunite to celebrate the holiday.

   And this Christmas is no different.

   We went to the Gregg County airport to meet up with travelers leaving to meet their families.

   Others were waiting to welcome their family home.

   "Holidays are a lot of fun. That's when we all get together most of the time," says Janet Gillespie.

   Janet is waiting for her youngest son.

   Her two granddaughters and daughter wait with her.

   "We're waiting for our uncle John. He's coming from Salt Lake city," says Kristi Bogle.

   "He gets pampered anyway because he's the baby of the family so that's why we're all like excited," says Laurie Bogle about her brother John.

   Others are ready for their own flight to go see family members.

   "I'm going to Corpus Christi, my parents and brothers and sisters. I'm leaving my husband here," says Barbara Sullivan.

   "Bye, take care of yourself. I'll talk to you tonight," she tells her husband after one last hug.

   "Unfortunately I was there two months ago cause my sister had surgery. So this will be a lot happier trip," says Sullivan.

   "I'm waiting for Terry. She's coming from Virginia. She is my sister-in-law and we haven't seen her for a year. So we can't wait til she gets here," says Mary Kay Dunay as she waits at the airport.

   "We're really anxious for him to get here," says Mrs. Gillespie still waiting for her son.

  "There he is," one of the granddaughters sees John and other passengers get off the plane.

   Each family takes a moment to embrace, ready to enjoy the season.

   Merry Christmas.
