Hey Good Looking!
That hat I gave you looks great! :) I am sooooo proud of you! I am blessed to be your wife. And Alexander is blessed to have a loving Daddy who works hard to reach his dreams and doesn't give up. We are anxiously waiting for you to get home. We have things to do! Ride in your truck, go to Target, go play at the park, go get a juice and have tickle fights!
WE LOVE YOU!
