I just had to tell my wonderful husband HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! I love you baby and I'm so grateful for you in our lives. You are a fantastic husband and a wonderful, sweet father to our girls. I hope you have a great birthday even though you're in Iraq. Oh and now, you too, are old!! :)

On a side note to a birthday wish, I will brag about you... We found out about 2 weeks ago that Travis made the E-7 list. That means that sometime in the next year or so Travis will be promoted to SFC (Sergeant First Class or E-7.) I can not begin to tell you how proud I am of him. He has done so well in the Army and made rank at an incredible speed. I smile everytime I think about it. I would be proud of him no matter what but, what an accomplishment.

One more bit of info... A few people have asked me if we know where we are going and I realized I don't know that I have posted it on here yet. In November we will be reporting to Ft. Benning, GA. We will be heading to AZ sometime in September for leave and then to Georgia. Travis will be a Ranger Instructor which means 3 years of NO DEPLOYMENTS!!!! We're very excited and hope we get lots of visitors! :)
