Yesterday Patrick's brother left for Iraq. I think it was 2003 when Brandon joined the Army as an enlisted infantryman. He lived in Germany for a few years where he met my lovely sister "in law in law" Verena =) They have the most beautiful little girl LILLIE BEAN. Last year Brandon joined the WV National Guard as an Officer..CONGRATS. Unfortunately he was shortly scheduled for a 13 month deployment and was off to 3 months of work ups (training for deployment).
Brandon is currently in route to Iraq and made it to his first destination safely, I am sure I will add more updates on Brandon's Deployment.
Good Luck Brandon we can't wait to have you home...HURRY UP March 2010!!!!
I wasn't sure if Alex is old enough to get excited about getting presents but actually had an Easter basket to find this year and boy did he LOVE it. He ran right over to its hiding spot and started taking it apart. Later Aunt Joni, Kristen, Mary Beth, Alex and I had a great brunch and enjoyed Easter 2009 with lots of yummy food and some site seeing in San Diego.
Alex and I are super excited Easter has come and gone because that means 6 more weeks till Daddy comes home...YEAH!
LOVE you Daddy!
My hiding spot
He found it!

The stuffing was the best part
We did some site seeing before dropping the girls off at the airport
