A Little R&R

Here's a followup on my brother in law's surprise homecoming. He's home from Iraq for just a couple weeks and then heads back :( Hopefully for not much longer as he is very missed by so many people around here. His brother, Bobby of Cold Steel Photography, has allowed me to share this video and pictures from the homecoming. The video is short but I think you'll get the idea of how excited Anaka was to see him. Luckily 2 and 5 year olds don't understand airport security and were thinking they were just there to waste time before a meeting. Their grandmother thought it would be fun to wave flags at those arriving and of course they just went with it.

And just a little note to Anthony:
I just want to say that we are all very proud of you Anthony and the sacrifices you are making for our country. We can see how hard it is for my sister on a daily basis so it's easy to forget how much you must miss them and how challenging things are for you and your unit. We are so glad you are getting this time, even if it's just temporary and we look forward to your permanent homecoming whenever that may be. Until then, God Bless you and know that we are praying for your safe return! Many thanks to Bobby for allowing me to share the video and pictures!
