New Class Photo

Mark, son #3, has his new class photo that he's bring home at Christmas. I found this one (a sneak preview) online. He looks so much older to me! I'm amazed how quickly these boys can turn into men and yet how they manage to retain their "little boyness" to us moms.
Mark is due home for Christmas on the 19th, a day after his younger brother is suppose to return home from Afghanistan for Christmas leave.
Christmas...our tree isn't up yet...everything seems to be moving in slow motion for me...yet time is flying by so quickly! Tomorrow we'll get the tree up and everything decorated. I'm excited to bring things together here at the house. Some of "our girls" will be over for dinner tomorrow night...they'll make the decorating so much fun!
