"Most of you know that Andy has been interested in planes and the Army from the time he was very young."
"Red sky in morning, Sailor take warning.
Red sky at night, Sailors delight!
If that old saying is true, we are in trouble."
It's been fun looking back at all my posts. When I looked back over this period of time, I was reminded again how the lord has blessed me and guided me throughout my life and in this past year. I also realized while doing this, that this will be my 200th post. I have had such fun with this and met so many new friends. I wish you all God's blessings for the next year!

Here is Heather with some Twilight Zone DVDs. She has always loved that show so I knew she'd be happy to have her own copy of a season.
Laura and Aaron got a few DVDs as well!
Laura brought a few extra gifts with her when they came to do our family Christmas on Christmas Eve. One of the gifts was this bear from Bob's sisters. Most of you know that Bob likes to carve and does other carpentry work. This bear is a woodworker. Diane made the bear and he is holding a little wooden bear. The tool box he came with has a few wooden toys in it and is filled with miniature tools. He is just adorable. We were all amazed by the detail of the bear and the cute little tools. Don't you think he's cute?

Here he is with his cousin Nick. There were lots of hugs and happy tears! A few people in the airport stopped him and thanked him for his service to the country.
