Andy is going to be joining the Navy Reserves while working in construction. Andys last day in the Navy is July 09, 2009. Right after Andy gets out, he will be coming home to us for good for at least two years. Then we will be traveling to Indiana to see ALL of Andy's family. We haven't seen most of them in 3 years. We will also be attending Andy's best friend's ( Whom Andy grew up with) wedding. Andy will be the bestman.

We won't be sending out Christmas cards this year due to our move and I always send Chirstmas family photos out with our cards every year. We won't have the time to do all of that this year. We do wish everyone a Merry Christmas. Christmas is about the lord and the time to be with one another. With the way the economy is we don't expect much at all. Hopefully the economy will turn around and next year will be better for everyone.
Here are a few recent pictures of the kids....
