My son, Alex and his family arrived on Father’s Day to spend his last leave with us before he is shipped off to Afghanistan. This is our last time to see him and we are soaking up every minute we can. If you don’t hear from me for awhile, this is why.

Hello again! Bad Alice has been gardening with Bubbly and up to no good. What a beautiful baby girl! I've got to back track now and find out more about Alex. My son returned from 12 months in Iraq at Christmas and will deploy again in 7 months. This was my year to breathe easy. I will be lifting your son up in prayer. Give him a Thank You for me please. **blows kisses** Deb
