Photos & Birthday wishes to & from Afghanistan

Happy Birthday
to
my husband
DAVID
(scroll to the post directly below this one for my Birthday BLOG CANDY)
One month into a 6 month Afghanistan deployment and we have already missed each others birthday. Now we just have each one of our 3 children, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, Valentines Day and our 21st Wedding Anniversary to go........... One of the best gifts that I received on my birthday were photos from him that I would like to share with you today.
The vest weighs 35 lb, can you imagine having to wear all of that

Fabulous pics. I bet you were thrilled to receive them. Did he ever receive your party in a box? I sent a birthday card and some snacks. Hopefully he will get them sooner than later. How's the APO working?

Great pics! My heart goes out to your family, though, with your separation. We have several military families at our church who have lived through one or even two year-long deployments. Thank you all (not just the soldiers, but their families, too) for your sacrifices! I'll keep you in my prayers!

Thank you, dear friend, for sharing your pics. I'm keeping you and your DH in prayers during the separation time. I know it must be difficult. Bless you guys for all you do for our safety. Have a good week!

Love these pics and the double shaka!! LOL! I'd love to send Dave a Mahalo Package - let me know if there are any local treats he especially likes and I'll box them up for him. Oh and e-mail me the address.
