Saving the World...

My weekend was nothing but bliss since my brother Andy and his wife Nicki, and my sister and her family, were able to come visit us on Sunday! We haven't seen Andy and Nicki since June and it was great to see them again. Their 2 cute kiddos weren't able to come as this was a last minute trip for Nicki to see Andy. Andy is headed out for deployment on Wednesday to Afghanistan for 7 months and just happened to be stopped in Norfolk for a little bit...amazing! So, we were all lucky enough to get to spend some time with him and we couldn't be more grateful.

This crazy kid is just one of a kind, the kind of guy you don't meet everyday. A great husband, father, son and brother. He has a heart the size of Texas and would give like there was no tomorrow. He loves unconditionally and makes everyone around him feel that love-he's pretty much just...
The kids loved having uncle Andy around for a day as did all of us. We want him to know how grateful we are for his service to this great country, to each of us. We love him and pray for him along with all the men and women who protect this country. We also pray for Nicki, Carter and Miss Aubrey Girl-hang in there, we love you!

We told the kids he is going far away to protect the our country and that it would be dangerous so we needed to keep him in our prayers-which Maddie is doing already.

He likes to say he is "saving the world".

Well, thank you Andy for "saving the world" and we look forward to seeing you again soon-we love you!
