Happy News!

I have not been posting very often lately, so I hope that this explains what I've been busy with. Monday evening our son arrived home from Iraq! He has been in the states for almost 3 weeks, processing and waiting for paperwork, etc. FINALLY, after day-to-day being ready for him to fly home, he arrived! We haven't seen him since January and his deployment started last August.
I thank him for his service to our country and he is my HERO!! We are so blessed that he is home safe and sound.

YEAH!!!! Is he home for good now?

I can't wait for my Dad to come home. I didn't realize how much I'd miss him until he was so far away.

I'm so happy for you and your family. :)
