As Christmas approached rumors of my bother, Ivan, were floating around about weather or not he would be home from Iraq. On Christmas Eve the word was that no he was not going to be home. Even then I was still hoping he would show up. Christmas morning came along and guess what, Ivan surprised the family. Not only was it so nice to see my brother for the first time in over a year but the fam was together. It is such a blessing that all 24 members of the family were able to come together to celebrate Christmas.
