Proudly announcing...

I AM GOING TO BE A MOTHER IN LAW!! I don't care if that word makes your hair stand up on the back of your neck, I am proud to become one!! I already feel that Rachel is my daughter, I adore her! And she lived with me when Scooter was in Iraq his first tour of duty. Oh we were silly scared, trying to be strong and leaned on each other so many times during that foggy year. Now, prior to his second tour of duty, they plan to elope and then upon his return we will have major party time...weddings on beaches, parties in Texas and who knows what else!! Why not get married over and over; afterall, that is how it rolls, huh? I LOVE YOU Scooter, my One Son and Rachel, my Only Daughter!!

eeeeee! Congratulations! They look so happy... so sweet...

For your son, there are two words that do not come close to holding everything in my heart for what he does, for the fact that my husband and I lay our heads on our pillow, and that my daughter wakes up in the morning swathed in the most beautiful flag protecting her... because your son and the rest of his brothers in arms put their lives on the line for us to do so. No, these words are not enough, but I humbly offer them -

thank you...

Motherhood... isn't it grand! Each phase we go through, makes us love them even more.
Scooter, you make us proud by doing a job that no one really wants to do, but you do this effortlessly. This unselfish act does not go unnoticed. I am an aunt who experienced her oldest nephew serve his country. I never knew the love I had for him could grow deeper but it did! He is very special and as you are!
Thank you for your devotion to our country, and the freedom we love so much!
Good Job Mom...
Peace and God Bless and keep you safe

I adore my daughter-in-law and always have. The first time I laid eyes on her, she was 15 and visited our house with my son's friend Nick. She and Nick were just buddies, so I said to Brendan, "Katie is adorable -- why don't you ask her out?" It took a while, but they ended up getting married on the 10th anniversary of their first date. I like my younger son's choice of sweeties too.
