What's up!!

Hello all! Again thank you to all of those that continue to support my brother and I by looking and reading our blog...including all of those that are here with us. We really appreciate it.

I can't say how much I appreciate all of the care packages that I've gotten in the last two weeks or so. People are so amazing! We've gotten everything from a Christmas Tree, and yes it's a CHRISTMAS tree, lights, decorations, ornaments, garling, and various other "stuff" to help put us in the CHRISTMAS spirit. I can't say how much we appreciate the items we've gotten. We were sent stockings...both empty and filled! We may be in Iraq away from our families this year, but we have had such an amazing amount of blessings from people we don't even know that have sent us things. THANK YOU! I called the states the other day and was put on was awesome! The CHRISTMAS music was playing and it reminded me of being home and walking into Wal-Mart or somewhere else and hearing the Christmas music playing. It was nice. I think I could have stayed on hold for 20 more minutes and been just fine with it. That goes back to how the small things in life make us happy. I need to take a picture of our Christmas tree and put on's not too bad. I think it's pretty. But maybe that's because I decorated it...with the help of one maybe two others, we "put the tree up" Thanksgiving I think...or day after... I can't remember, but it was close to that time. We're looking forward to having another nice dinner together on Christmas. It will be really nice to sit down and have a nice dinner with our "family" over here. We've grown to be pretty close and pretty good squad that is.

Man! I'm looking forward to going home! More than anything i'm looking forward to seeing my niece. I miss her the most out of anything. I hope her mom will let me spend some time with her when I get home. I didn't get to see her while i was home on R&R...her mom wouldn't let me see her. But, it's ok. Courtney is only getting older and smarter. One day I'll explain to her why there are no pictures of me and her while I was home...Anyway...I'm looking forward to getting home, going to Ohio, and enjoying the great outdoors! The two week trip I have planned for Ohio should be GREAT!! I'm really looking forward to it.

Well, I'm sitting here thinking that I had more to say but now that I'm here typing my mind is drawing a blank. There are some things I wanted to say, but either they're not coming to mind, or I'm holding back....I mainly just wanted to get on here and give everyone a little update and say hello. I won't dare say that one's necessarily been ----- but it's not been too too crazy lately either. That goes back to the theory, when a medic has down time...give it to him and don't complain, because if he's busy all the time, things can't be too good for someone. Well I'm going to do a little online browsing...I'm typing a lot of words but not saying much...OH YEAH...

I just remembered something....I LOVE getting cards and construction paper letters from kids across the country. I actually carry one around in my pocket that was mailed to us. It's this little card that has a picture that a little kid drew on it. It's the coolest thing. There are so many young people that I want to write back from 6 years old to one letter from an 18 year old. It's so awesome when I get those in the mail. I've had the one kid's letter in my chest pocket for about two months now I think....everytime I reach in my pocket I feel it and I remember why I'm here....for them. So hopefully they will have a better life. So they can get up each morning and be a kid. What I would do to be a kid again....So thank you to all of the school teachers, Sunday School teachers, and others that take the time to write a little note. It's awesome!!
