This is my great nephew, Odin. It's his 2nd birthday today. I wanted to use this picture for my Memorial Day post, and thought I would give him a little shout out!!!! I took this picture last 4th of July, isn't he edible? Anyhow, I want everyone to recognize how lucky we are to live in the county we live in and get to enjoy the freedoms we have. I am so grateful for those who have served and who currently serve in our military. I am SOOOO glad that this little guy's daddy, Chuck came home safe from Iraq when he served there. Today would have a whole different meaning if he hadn't. I will be teaching our kids about the importance of celebrating those who have gone before us, especially the ones that died while defending our freedom. I'm so happy that I live in a county that lets me worship the way I want to and live my life the way I choose. How lucky are we? Now, go get the dogs on the grill.... LET'S CELEBRATE!!!! Happy Memorial Day, folks!!!
