'Daddy tractor'

My Husband, Stephen Kneller, had this picture taken on the base where he is stationed in Iraq. It was taken in September 2007. Our 2 year old son Adler LOVES tractors so my husband sent this picture for him. I use the picture as the screen saver on our computer and everytime Adler see's it he says "Daddy tractor."

My Husband's birthday is this Friday, October 12th. He is serving in Iraq and is slated to be home in November. HAPPY BIRTHDAY! WE LOVE YOU! He is a member of the 122nd Fighter WIng in Ft. Wayne, IN Avionics division.
