Patriotic Peppermint Bark...

So, I did "Tanya Math" (term used in my house every time I make a mathematical error) for the Halloween Bark I made for my Physical Therapists=(  I miscounted and left one of the PT's out.  He was prior Air Force so I made it up to him today by bringing him in a huge bag of Patriotic Peppermint Bark=)  I added some of those melt in your mouth peppermint candies and red, white, and blue sprinkles.  Just a quick and simple little tag made with Patriotic Chickie, SU Punches, and some Denami Ribbon.

I saw this "photo" going around fb and it is one of my favorite descriptions on what a "Veteran" is.

A couple weeks ago my hubs met me and our grandboys for dinner right after he got off of work so he was still in uniform.  I was walking slightly ahead of him with our older grandson Wylie and my hubs was a little ways behind holding our youngest grandson Connor.  I hear a ladies voice from the bar area say, "Hey Soldier...thank-you for your service!  I appreciate it".  It really touched my heart and means so much to our service men and women.  I hope you all have had a nice Veterans Day and have had a chance to thank the Veterans in your life as well as any you may have come across today.  A special thank-you to my Dad, Grandfather-in-law, Step dad, and BFF Angie, may they all be resting in peace.  Thank-you to my sweet hubs who has provided our family a wonderful life through his time and service in the Air Force...I enjoy being a Military Wife=)

Thank-you so much for stopping by, enjoy your weekend.
