Happy Veteran's Day!

Happy Veterans' Day to all you Veterans out there and your families. You have all made tremedous sacrifices and we really appreciate it. And for those of you who aren't vets, be sure to thank one. Regardless of your views on the war, the soldier is doing his job to protect this nation. It is a high and noble calling full of sacrifice for both the soldier and their families. We salute you!

Here are some of my favorite family patriotic pictures I thought I'd share with you on this Veterans' Day. This first picture is our family at Michael's battalion's Deactivation Ceremony.

I love this one of Josiah and Larry Pop. Larry Pop is teaching Josiah to put his had over his heart when saying the pledge of allegience and listening to our national anthem.

Here is Josiah and I in front of the Support the Troops booth at the Union County fair back in 2005 when Michael was still in Iraq. We were both dressed in our patriotic duds. I love his star sunglasses! He is almost two years old here.

This is one of my all time favorite patriotic photos. This is my niece, Jessica. She looks as American as apple pie here. I took this picture at Michael's battalion's activation ceremony in 2004.

Someone took this picture of Josiah and I shortly after Michael left for Iraq. We sent it to Michael and he got a kick out of it. Josiah is about 9 months old here.

Thanks, Jack for sharing those great pictures with us. I hope Michael was honored when the kids thanked him this morning.

I just love that one with Jess and the American flag. I was shocked to see how much she looked like Jakers! I forgot too, how small Josiah was when Michael was in Iraq.
