We welcomed Jared's brother, Matt, home last night. He just finished his third deployment with the United States marine Corps. He was in Afghanistan this time around. It has been a long 6 1/2 months. He missed his birthday, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years... We plan on having a big party sometime in March to celebrate his safe return. If you'd like to read more about his homecoming you can read my baking gals blog here. There are a lot more pictures there and some of his homecoming story. Welcome Home Matt!!!
