for the past couple of months, we've had very little communication with mr.a. 
he had been using a satellite phone to call me when he could (every 5 days or so), but they are extemely expensive to use (they cost the military $9 a minute!) so we kept our conversations brief. but finally his COP (combat outpost) got some phone lines set up and computers with internet access! (whew! that was a lot of parentheses!) quinn not the sweetest little nugget you've ever seen?!

yay! we love that face!!!
that may be the best christmas present i'll get this year!

(though my sister is pretty sure her gift trumps skype. we'll see!)


  1. woah, woah, woah! I didn't make that claim!! :) I hope it trumps all other gifts you open that day, but pretty sure i can't compete with a conversation with your hubby. (although it is pretty good...

    kidding, kidding)

  2. I'll bet that was just the pick-me-up you needed! Happy Holidays!

  3. Yay! So happy for you!

    Also, Quinn, your youngest? She looks just like you!

    Merry Christmas!

  4. aww so happy your got to see his face. beats just hearing his voice i'm sure

  5. Our prayers are with you Bethany, it must be so hard but God is faithful and present with you and Seth - the same God - at your sides. Amazing.

  6. This post made me tear up a bit. So glad you got to see your husband for a little bit this Christmas. I'll be praying for his safe return.

    Thank you for the sacrifices you and your family make everyday for our country.
