Hi all! My daughter and her family are in the running for a huge home makeover. The contest is sponsored by a Boston tv station. You can vote once a day for 10 days. Go to www.myfoxboston.com and look under Contests, then look for Mission Renovation. The contest is for veterans. She and her husband met in Iraq and have been married for 10 years. They have three precious daughters. Their home really needs this! I'd so appreciate your votes.

I just watched the video and video !!! Such a sweet family ! Right now, your DD's family is in the "lead"...YAY!! I will send this to some of my family as well,,I am sure that they would "vote" too. I have a niece whose DH just retired from the USMC. They are living in Idaho with their five children 5 boys and one girl. ( the girl is 9 yrs old and is the youngest ) .
I forgot to mention I will continue to "vote" for the next "10" days.......

Faith and Danny were chosen to be in the top three after hundreds of families applied. They feel very humbled by it. Voting continues for nine more days if you want to visit the site again!

I wish they had mentioned they met on duty in Iraq. Danny was Faith's commanding officer and no dating was allowed, so they became very close as friends. When they got home, Faith said, "Finally, we can start to date!" Danny said to her, "I don't want to date you. I want to marry you. Will you marry me?" How romantic is that?
