For Christmas 2004, Noah came just weeks before his deployment in OIF3. He couldn't be with us last Christmas as he was working at Fort Benning after being returned to duty after his wounding and was preparing for the return of his unit (Our Guys) early in '06. We were particularly pleased that he could spend this Christmas with us as he is slated to return to the battlefield in '07...
So Noah arrived from Ft Benning safe and sound to spend Christmas with us... and he brought along an early Christmas present... his new wife, M!
she's sweet and they are happy and devoted to each other... she's a delightful addition to our family!!
So one "old" son, one new daughter!
And this is for Sean and Heather... snow here in Northern Arizona... just enough to give us the hope of a white Christmas in the pines (it will warm this afternoon and be gone, but it sure is pretty while it lasts!)
