My Brother is Home

Michael, my brother in law, spent a long year in Iraq serving our country. I am so thankful that we have him home with us again, safe and sound.

Melissa, his fiance (definitely a keeper) hosted a coming home party last night, and I went with Jeff and Gideon. Chrissy babysat Gabey so I could go. We had such a great time. There was something for everyone to do. I was impressed. It's hard to have a party for such a big crowd, and not have people bored. They had groups playing different things in every area of the house and even corn hole in the garage. LOL. My video game junkie husband spent the evening playing the Wii. Man, is that a neat system. I got to talk to all my sisters in law, and mom in law. It was so nice. It's been a while since I've been able to go to their family get togethers. I had a lot of catching up to do. AND the FOOD!! I was just happy to sample the side dishes, they were all so good, i didn't need any main courses. LOL.
Gideon did me proud, and let everyone hold him. He was passed around quite a bit, and just slept through it. LOL.


Here is my brother Michael, holding Gideon...

I'm glad to know he's home safe and sound. Praise the Lord. Good to know you had a good time. Was Gabey's counts low to where he couldn't go?

yeah, they're extremely low, we're hoping they'll build up in the next 2 weeks. i 'm sure they will, being off chemo.
