I'm Proud to be an American!

Rob surprised me with some patriotic flowers

This was the last Document I had to sign .

I am proud to be the newest American. Yesterday at about 9:45 I became the newest citizen of the U.S.A. There were 205 people and 46 countries there. Four of them were Iraqi national. I thought I wouldn't get emotional but hearing the stories and thinking back on how this came I started to cry. I would like to thank My wonderful husband for all he did for me, My in laws for some financial support, and all of my extended family for cheering me on.
*I'll have some more pictures and details soon.*
