we support our troop

we support our troop


just a quick update to add that the most wonderful man on the planet is now back on u.s. soil. it's been a thrilling and prefect day. to all of the husbands and dads that headed overseas to relieve our guys & those serving at home and overseas... we're thankful for all you do!

for all of those in our area that saw the signs along the road & sent their love. thank you so much. i received a touching email from a friend today regarding that... we are just feeling very blessed!

we took a few pics today... somewhere over 1000, so i'll have more to share... but for now it's onto some precious family time.
