I know there are a lot of people that don't understand the friendship we have with the Holtgrewe's. They don't understand that they are family. When you're in the military and so far away from family and everything you know and even cultures that you know your friends are all you have. You have to rely on them for EVERYTHING. Then your husbands deploy, you start your families at the same time AND you ADD to your families at the same time... What I'm trying to say is, We love you Holtgrewe's and we are SOOO glad you used your vacation to come and visit us. We had a blast and can't wait to be stationed together again (it WILL happen!)

Here are some pictures of the kids we had to take the day before they left. Kids are so funny. I love the little personalities that totally come through in pictures.

This was not what we asked them to do! :)

Yep Alexis did bunny ears. Thank you my class clown.

She wanted to pic every pose we did and when Anya said how about this she did it SO willingly. HA!

Just so you can see she DOES have a pretty smile.

They insisted on pictures with Tucker. Turned out pretty cute.

I love these kids!

I know I said it before, but I really am so happy that you guys got to spend a couple of weeks together. I can just imagine how happy you (and the kids) must have been to be together again. Those pictures are adorable, and I love how you really can tell how much they love each other. Can't wait until we get to see you again!
