The countdown begins...

I broke out the calendar today and started the countdown to Frank's arrival. We don't have an exact arrival date yet, but it looks like he will be home towards the end of February. 372 days down and about 90 to go......I can't tell you how excited I am about this!! We have missed him so much. It's always hard at this time of year, the holidays just make us miss him more. I hope that everyone takes time out of their busy schedule this Christmas to remember our troops and the sacrifices they have made for us. I want to say thank you to everyone that helped with donating to our carepackages. We got about 8 boxes together this year, not bad. It would be alot more if we didn't have to spend a good portion of money on shipping. I think there should be a free shipping service in place for military wives and people wanting to donate to our troops!
