Welcome Home, Jim!

(Jim is on the left)

My brother, Master Sergeant James L. Cook, has retired from the US Air Force after 26 years of service. To welcome him (and his family) home, our "home" church had a dinner after church this past Sunday in his honor. My mom is so excited to have them moving back "home." She even managed to talk him into buying the house right beside of her!

(L to R front): Boots (mom), Lucille (Mamaw), me, Dawn (sis-in-law), Lisa (sis-in-law), Trish (step mom). Back: Gayle (step dad), Darrin (hubby), Jim (brother), Rodney (brother) & Donnie (dad).......... one big dysfunctional family. :)

You can see more pictures from Sunday on flickr.
