Family far away...

I just wanted to share a few family pics we took while in Ohio at Christmas. It was the first time since March that my whole family was together - and we had two very special new additions! Ainsley and her new little cousin Maddox! Maddox Bradley Reed was born on my birthday, November 22nd. He and Ainsley are 4 months apart. My sister Tara and I are so excited that they are so close in age. Now if only we lived closer so they could see each other more often! Tara, Ben and Maddox are in Missouri where Ben is in the Army. They will be moving sometime next year but they don't know where yet. It all depends on where Ben is stationed, which could be anywhere from Alaska to Europe to somewhere else in the continental US. My brother Todd lives in Chicago and my brother Alex lives in Ohio and works for my dad. I miss them all every day. I feel so blessed that I have such a close relationship with my family. It's a comfort when I get homesick and start to think about how far away we all live. Hopefully we'll figure out a way to see each other more than once or twice a year.

  1. Great idea!! I think I'm going to start one of these!
    Maddox and I should be able to take a trip down to see you this summer even though Ben will be working.
    Miss you guys!
