My sister in law, Lucy, is serving in the Navy and is currently in Iraq. She has been gone for several months and has a few more yet to go. My brother in law and the kids came in for Christmas this week and it was painfully obvious what was missing....Lucy.
Lucy, we really missed you! We hope that you are doing well and I'm sorry I'm so awful about sending you things. I have things I've been meaning to send, but just haven't....no excuses though!
Lucy gave her husband Brad a beautiful gift for Christmas and he opened in in front of all of us on Christmas Morning. I don't know the specific details, and I only heard parts of the card, because I was crying and trying to keep it under control. But, she had a flag flown over the base, I believe, in honor of Brad for his part in this war. His wife is gone to Iraq and he is home with their two children, ages 2 and 9. It's a huge sacrifice that they are both making. Lucy would not be able to do what she is doing without the support and love from Brad. Do you see why I was frighting hysterical tears?!
At any rate, Brad is always telling me how much Lucy enjoys the photos that I post on my blog so I took the opportunity to photograph her beautiful children to post for her to see.
I took more pictures of Brandon, simply because he loves to have his pictures taken!
Lucy, these are for you! We miss you and are so proud of you!
