Supporting the Troops...

As you may know Scott, my brother in law is serving time in Iraq. So before Olivia was born we had an idea to find a camo t-shirt and have something printed on it to support him. I found this little romper outfit and had a little saying printed on the front and ARMY STRONG printed on the back. It reads - proud niece of Sgt. V. Scott seems to be pretty crazy about this little girl he hasn't met yet.

He sent her the sweetest card that I am saving for her to read when she is older. Also Heidi & Scott "argue" about who is going to hold her first when they finally get to meet her. Now I just can't wait for them to have kids!

Found this picture here on Danelle Johnson's blog (a blog I often read). Just reminded me of Scott and how proud I am for what he is doing. It is not easy and there are no luxury’s in his life over there as he defends our freedom. And how proud I am of my sister for staying in Germany and being so supportive to her husband. She is truly amazing! I can’t imagine how she does it everyday but I pray for her daily and can’t tell her enough how PROUD I am to have as MY sister! In fact tonight I was helping Debbie purge her old magazines and I found a section in one of them about ARMY Wifes. I ripped it out so I could be inspired to do a layout or mini book or something for her.
