When Scott departed the end of October last year, their 3rd son was just 7-weeks old. He had his R&R this past May and was able to spend 2 weeks with them and the baby was 8-months old. Now the baby is almost 14-months old.

As soon as my DIL can send me the homecoming pictures from last night, I'll post a happy family photo.
Being that I'm talking soldiers, I just received back from the long arm quilter my very first Quilts of Valor quilt. I bought the fabric last year hoping to start the quilt the beginning of this year and it just never happened. My mom finished her 9-month Farmers Wife project and had time on her hands so she pieced it for me. Thanks Mom!!

Quilting by Elayne in Tennessee
I just now need to make the pillowcase, attach the label, wash it and then I can request a destination for it. If you haven't checked out Quilts of Valor before, please do. The mission of the Quilts of Valor Foundation is to cover ALL combat service members and veterans touched by war with comforting and healing Quilts of Valor.
I hope you all have a great day, I know we will knowing that our son is back home safely and enjoying his family.
