A surprise visit...





Tonight, we had a surprise visitor come through. As I had mentioned in an earlier post, Tyler was on Hurrican duty with the National Guard. As they were passing back through Beaumont he was able to visit briefly while the rest of the unit went to have dinner. I think by the pictures, he was obviously missed by Miss Annabel! He isn't sure if he will be coming right back or if he will have to go to where the next storm will be. I am wondering how I will handle it when Tyler goes off in 2010 for duty, if I can't handle him being on storm duty.
As you can tell we were not planning on a photo shoot, she was just chillin' in her t-shirt and diaper!

Obviously Tyler is Annabel's hero! Loved the pictures and so glad he could make it home for a quick visit!

Gosh, she is adorable in tee shirt and dipe or princess outfit. It matters not.

Lots of love and joy oozing from these pictures Cathy:) Tyler is so handsome and loving to Annabel. He just makes her "light up" with that priceless smile. I am glad you handled the evacuation and storm okay. I love you and continue praying for you my friend.
