This was a great house to stay in, although it would have been nice if the upper two stories connected with the bottom floor. There were enough beds for everyone though and Gunner and I had a king size bed with enough room for Junior to flop all over the place between us.
One of the best things about getting together with my sisters and my brother is that Junior, Em and Abs get to spend time with their cousins. Just a few pictures of my little sister's kiddos, more to come since my mom had a slew of kids....okay, just four, but I couldn't imagine having that many!
The picture of Abs is somewhat blurry, but she is less than impressed with the fact that Em got a JB cd and poster. Why you ask??? (Cause I know you are waiting with bated breath) Em showed Abs a video and while Gunner and I were Christmas shopping, and we got a frantic call from Em that Abs said she was going to marry JB. Apparently this wasn't fair, but we hear Abs in the background yelling "I called him first" and Em was trying to argue that JB was tooooo old for her and Em was trying to argue that there was no possible way for Abs to "call him first".
We have survived four year long deployments--one to Bosnia and three to Iraq. We have been married for almost 17 years and have three children--Em, Abs, and Junior. Gunner is currently deployed for the 5th time to Afghanistan. We are fast approaching the year mark, and then we will focus on the prize--retirement!
