our best vet

Day Eleven: I'm thankful for our soldiers - past, present, and future.

I really do appreciate the sacrifices made by those who've served our country and those who will make the decision to do so in the future. Avery is lucky enough to count two great-grandfathers who served in the Navy during WWII as well as various other family members who've spent time in the military. So in honor of Veteran's Day, we called up our favorite Vet this morning to chat for a bit and tell him thank you.

The first picture was taken when she was about 8 weeks old, sometime in September 2009.


Then one day in March when Paw stopped by for a visit, I got my camera out again.


I'm so glad he's here to be a part of Avery's life and hopefully he'll share some of the same stories with her that he's shared with us over the years. We're very thankful for his past service to our country!


  1. Amy, thank you so much for these pictures. I don't have a lot of pictures of Daddy and none with Avery. I have tears in my eyes and I know Gran's smiling at these pics.

    Love you!

  2. Debbie, Deran and I often talk about how much Gran and Grandma would've loved the babies and I have no doubt she's smiling. Love you too!
