Another Craft that I found on the Web and re-created!

My Soldier Brothers

Both of my brothers are in Afghanistan. Clifton is with the Air Force & Craig is with the National Guard/Army. Miraculously, they are only stationed about 10 minutes apart so Craig was able to hop a quick flight over to see Clif on his birthday (Sept. 14th) and have some ice-cream with him. It is realy great to see both of my brothers together & smiling! I love you guys! & Happy Birthday Clif!

School started a 2 weeks ago & everyone else has already posted their "back to school" photos. Unfortuneatly, mine are all on the camera hard drive & I can't seem to find the cord to retrieve them... I did manage to get Danielle's on the camera card so I am able to post hers. Here is Danielle at the dentist & at her "meet the teacher" day at her preschool.

My brother Craig had a layover at the Dallas Airport on his way back to Afghanistan so we were able to meet him there & talk with him for about 3 hours. It was really neat to see the girls interact with him & ask him questions about what he is doing and what the patches meant on his uniform. It was also really neat to see all of the many people come up to them & tell them thankyou for what they are doing. There was a whole line up of people hugging the troops & thanking them for everything. It was all very heartwarming. As scary as it is for me to have both of my brothers overseas & in that mess... my heart goes out to their wives & kids. I don't know how they get through it all. I love you Jessie & J-Me. You are always in our thoughts & prayers. Thanks for all that you give up so that our Country stays safe!
