|Six in the Hood||
Last Wednesday night we headed to Murphy, TX to hang with out with of my BFF's. I hadn't see her in - well in about 6 months - and that was just for a quick lunch, BUT before that it had been a long 2.5 years since I had seen her. To my disbelieve I don't have any pictures to post of the two of us. Yea, yea I have pictures of us playing "Just Dance" on the Wii, but those are not for here. Anyway we had a nice short visit, dinner, dancing and then the next morning Hubby, the kids, one of her kids and I headed out to the Gerald J Ford Stadium (who is Gerald J Ford anyway?) to watch the Bell Helicopter Armed Forces Bowl Game, and what a game it was!! Army had their first winning season since 1996 & they won their first bowl game since 1985!! Who knows, with this kind of rally, maybe, just maybe they will beat Navy next year!
On the back of all the chairs in the stadium there were little gift bags. These bags included a key chain, a postcard for you to write a letter to a soldier and a little dry erase board.
My sweet girl wrote a letter to a soldier, this is what she wrote: 'Thank you for serving our country and fighting for freedom. You work so hard for it. My Dad is a soldier to. Your friend, ' This brought tears to my eyes that day and as I retyped what she wrote my eyes filled with tears and my heart with pride.
