It probably would help if I backed up a bit and filled in the gaps of what's happened in our family over the past while. One main event was the marriage of our soldier, Jason, to his sweetheart, Hannah and her two little girls. Jason's known Hannah for years as she was his best friend's sister. He didn't break the "it's not cool to date your best friend's sister" rule until after his best friend got married himself. Then it was 'all bets are off'. They were married in Colorado Springs in Sept. and then Jason was deployed for the second time to Iraq in December...leaving behind a new house, new daughters, and a new wife who was expecting a new baby. Quite a whirlwind for all of us but Hannah especially. She's a real trooper...who says there's just one soldier in our family!

Since it's so much fun to stay caught up with my cousin Sheila through her blog, I thought that I would give it a try myself. I'd love to be able to sit and write cards and letters to all my friends, but you all know that that just hasn't happened too often over the past several years. So, this is my "cheater" way of staying in touch with all of you. For starters...you all know my beginnings with Ken...amazing man that swept me off my feet and kept on sweeping all the way to Tucson, Arizona. Well, "here we go again"...all the way to Brandon, Mississippi this time! Yep, we're moving! After several years of trying to get 'back home', Ken took a transfer to a little place east of Jackson. So I'm going to try and keep you all posted on our comings and goings. Stay tuned!
