Family Welcomes Home Daddy From War

For one Ocean Springs family, the New Year celebrations have already begun. Robert Baylis is with the 890th Engineering Battalion, headquarters company, currently serving in Iraq. The Army National guardsman's wife and children hadn't seen him since March, but today Lieutenant Baylis was scheduled to walk off a plane and into their arms.

New Years Eve is bringing a special visitor to the Baylis house tonight, Santa Claus. Janie Baylis says the family decided to hold off gift giving until her husband arrived so they could celebrate Christmas together.
