She was such a sweet baby.
Her father has spent half of her life deployed. He left the first time when she was two.
Some days I wondered if we would ever reach 10. Thankfully we did, and she will have no surprises tomorrow because I sent her to the car to get a vitamin water, and forgot I had all her presents in the back. She said she didn't look, but come on, it's Abs we are talking about!
Happy Birthday to my favorite 10 year old girl. Here's hoping the next decade is a little bit easier on us both!
(We're just doing something small and waiting for a big dinner out when Gunner gets home. She was ALL about that plan!)
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!
