Fluffles Celebrate You, You, You Card!

I just recently started to participate in the Sketch Challenges on Splitcoaststampers, in fact, this is my second one.. I have received the notifications for them for a while.. but have decided to take the challenge.. and they are so much fun... here is my creation for this week's challenge.
This morning me and my two youngest children attended my husband's last graduation ceremoney as First Sergeant of Charlie Company 2/10 Inf. Basic Training Company here at Fort Leonard Wood, MO. I know how special it is on graduation day to see the families there to support their soldiers.. makes my heart swell with so much pride to see my fellow Americans feeling the same way I did when I watched my oldest graduation Air Force Basic Training. Choosing to join the military is such a big undertaking these days and I am proud of each and every one of the soldiers for their choice to serve our great country. I went and shook the hand of each one of the soldiers that were lined up in the front of the auditorium and told them how proud I was of each one of them and thanked them for their service to our country. I am one who cries when I hear the Star Spangled Banner... I don't take for granted the freedoms that me and my family have and am so very proud to be an American.
Okay.. I should thank you if you read though that.. it was just a special day for my family. I remember the day my husband took over Charlie Company and have witnessed the awesome training company that they have became.
GREAT NEWS!!! I am a BIG St. Louis Cardinals Fan ~ and we are going to the game on Sunday.. we got free tickets and will be in a special area that is catered with food and drink.. I think we are down the 3rd base line.. I wish it was 1st base so I could watch Albert Pujols all afternoon ~ I'll have my Canon camera with my zoom lens so I'll be watching him up close and personal ~ me and the kids are psyched about going.. my daughter who is 11 has been making posters to take with us. This will be the two youngest's first baseball game.. I'll have some pictures to post I'm sure.
Have a GREAT night ~ Pam
