Chris and John are home!

After 15 long months in Iraq, my cousin, Chris is finally back in the US. We were SO fortunate to be able to witness his homecoming along with his wife, mom and dad, grandparents, two aunts and an uncle. It was an incredible experience that I will never forget. The kids can't stop talking about it and Will has already started writing a story about it at school. I have pictures and more details to write about, but don't have time to put it all down right now. I just wanted to let everyone know the good news!

And more good news....Allan's nephew, John is also back from his deployment in Iraq. He arrived safely a few weeks prior to Chris. We are so happy and fortunate to have our family members back safe. Our prayers were certainly answered.

Thanks to John and Chris for being so brave and serving our country! We love you guys!

Thank you for everything! I am so glad that your family could be a part of the homecoming and we enjoyed spending time with everyone. Currently, our fridge is covered with artwork from the kids and it looks great!
