When we got the good news - the US troops are coming home from Iraq!  Almost immediately, I started to think of all the excited families that will be waiting impatiently to see the faces of their loved ones.

Then today, I saw this video. It's of 2 year old little girl named Audra, and she is watching her daddy read a bedtime story to her. Nothing unusual here right? Except that, her father is currently deployed in our US Military.

The bedtime story was recorded for her by her dad prior to shipping out and helps Audra keep in touch with her father.  Even if that connection is a hug shared through the TV.

WARNING: This video is way too cute!!

And its not the first time that Dad and Daughter have read together. Watch this cute video of Audra at 13 months, reading with her father on the couch.
