Brotherly love!!!

The older of my younger brothers, Micah, is coming into town tomorrow for 5 days before shipping off to Balaad in Iraq for 6+ months. I am so excited to see him. Granted I saw him this last July for Landons birthday, but when you are as close as we are that is really a long time. He is in the Air Force and stationed at Travis AFB in California. He is one of my best friends and an amazing guy. He is how I met my wonderful husband.
Noah and Micah are very good friends as well which means a lot to me I cherish my brothers and wanted my husband and brothers to be good friends. I am so proud of my brother and his accomplishments. I am proud of his decision to join the Air Force and serve our country. He does not have the most glamorous job in the AF, he is the guy who cleans up the planes, he calls it S.W.A.T (sewer, waste and trash.) Thats his way of making it not so yucky~~~ But I am still proud of him no matter what his job in the AF is, because I know he gives it his all.

My brother and I have always been good friends and I hope that it stays that way and that my children and his future children are as close as well. I love him and wanted to dedicate this post to him and all of our other military mean serving state side as well as overseas. We have a few friends whose husbands are away from them at this time and I wanted to acknowledge them as well: Captain Glen Gilson, SRA Robby Rhoads, and Ssgt Aaron Andrews. Thank you for all you do and good luck! Come home to us soon and safe.
As you can see my brother is the eternal goofball of the family. Him and Noah fit together like two peas in a pod. His saying is "If you dont die young you must be doing something wrong." He is a wild and crazy guy who LOVES to skydive.

Rock on dudes!
Merry Christmas!!!!

*Landon may not get stuck like Blake because he is so tall and skinny! I removed Blake's bumper because he would just push his limbs out underneath it anyway. Plus he would play with it at night and not go to sleep so I removed it when he was about 9 months! Hope you are having a great weekend!*

He looks like he has an awesome personality! (and it is a cutie!) I hope everything goes well on this next assignment for him. I miss Cali, I am from Stockton, right by Travis AFB, and Bill is from Lodi, your brother would know right where those places are. :) I love it when my little brother visits, I know how you feel. :)
