Yes, it is that time of year again!

Truthfully, 2 years and 4 months ago when we saw a baby boy through the ultrasound, Gar thought two things:

1. Boy = football
2. Boy = Love of Trains

Well, it is football season again. How does that always come around every year? This year we have DirectTV NFL Sunday ticket, so football is lived in our upstairs toy room!

Today Jason was decked out in Packers gear, playing with trains. Gar was thrilled!

And no, he did not have on shorts, but you pick your battles!

Strong the force is in this one!

While Jason struggled to understand the pinata, Anna used her Jedi mind tricks to trick the pinata into giving up its secrets.

"Mmm . . .Release the candy, you will"

Jason's 2nd Birthday

Jason's 2nd Birthday party was (surprise!) a train theme. There were about 20 people at the party. Cake, ice cream and a SoCal necessary . . . a pinata, Thomas the Train. You can see how big it was in the third photo. Really, the kids could have climbed on top and rode it around in the yard. Jason took a little while, a points from Mom to warm up. But, in the end he did his best.

Iraq questions abound.

To answer all of you who asked . . .yes, I am still going to deploy for 7 months to Iraq, sometime in late winter (that is all of the detail I can give you right now). The recent "draw down" doesn't effect the 130,000 regular people already there!

I will not be deploying with my 1st Medical Battalion Corpsmen (mostly Navy), but instead with a large Battalion of Devil Dogs (ie Marines). I will be one of the few Navy people and the only Naval Officer in the Battalion.

Got to love the Marines. YUT YUT (That is Marine speak for "done".)


Anyway, I will let you know !
