Getting ready fro my next regional rest break

Time flies by too quickly sometimes and sometimes takes FOREVER!  Lol.  These times have been particularly evident my time during in Baghdad.  When I am gone on my R&Rs or my regional rest breaks (RRB) my time flies by WAY too quickly and then I'm back in Baghdad.  Then when I'm back in Baghdad, time seems to DRAG!  Lol.  But that's ok.  Luckily, I have enough R&Rs and RRBs that it helps break up my time pretty quickly.  That being said, I am getting ready to go on my next RRB.  And this time, I am going to a place that I've ALWAYS wanted to go...I'm cruising the Greek Islands! :D  That is something that I have wanted to do since I can remember.  I'm going to also get to Jerusalem too, so I am crossing off two of the places I've always wanted to go.  Can't wait to show everyone the pictures!  Until then!

Christmas 2011 trip home

I was fortunate enough to get to travel home again this Christmas.  I was home for 18 days and it sure wasn't long enough!  But I had a great time while I was home and did a lot of different things and saw a lot of family and friends.
We had a baby shower for Ruth.  Her baby is due in March and we can't wait to welcome Adaline Helene Kellersberger into our family!

 Only one sister wasn't able to attend.  We sure missed Vonda, but were glad that most of the sisters were able to make it to such a special day.
I got to catch up with my oldest friend.  I've known Lari Dawn since I was about four (maybe earlier but that's my first memory of her).  Its nice that no matter how long it's been since you've seen a dear friend, that you can still talk like no time has gone by!

New Year's Eve in Baghdad

This year I ended up spending New Year's Eve in Baghdad, Iraq. Luckily I've made some great friends here and we had a pre-party before going over to Baghdaddy's. I didn't take a photo, so a friend sent this one to me. In it with me is Burim (who is on the RSO soccer team), Diana and Nancy.
