A White Christmas

We woke up this morning and the ground was covered in snow! I was very excited and christian was too. Noah was not too bothered about the snow. We made belgian waffles and bacon. We put Joshua down for his morning nap and then all headed to the backyard for fun in the snow! When I say fun I mean trying to dodge all of Daddy's snowballs....We are going to do sugar cookies in a while. and then head to the assistant pastors house for a game night at 7pm if the snow is not too bad. What a fun Christmas....with no Santa, no tree and no coveted presents, no Stress=) Thank God for this wonderful Christmas!

Noah did not last long....after Chris hit him in the face a few times with snow balls he had to come in soon. No I am not trying to look cute in the snow as my husband assumed. I don't have a winter jacket and thought I would do the neighborhood a favor and put something modest over my tights.

Christian did not want to come back in even after taking many snow balls to the face.

big boy room

Christian is no longer in a toddler bed! God allowed us to buy this really nice bed for Christian it has some drawers and a trundle that pulls out so eventually NOah will get a mattress and sleep in here with Christian but for now Christian is enjoying having his own space! He is not scared of the dark or anything I am so proud of him.

Home Sweet Home

The same day we arrived in Missouri from our raod trip we went to pick up chris from the kansas city airport. it was a late flight so the boys fell asleep and did not wake up to greet him =( except Joshua. I was thrilled to have my husband back =) and still am almost a month later. Deployments are not fun at all!!! We stayed a friends house for a few days while we waited on housing. Thanks Liz =) and finally after not having a real place to call home for 4 months we finally got all our stuff from storage and bought some new things as well. I have never really decorated any of our homes because I always knew we would be moving soon enough...but I am going to do my best not to move any more....on my part... anyhow God is in control of how often we move so if we move again Atleast I will be an experienced decorator =)

Our Road Trip home

Enjoying the hotel bath tub
Mcdonalds lunch I think in kentucky.....not too sure

God is so good I would have never thought travelling 17.5 hrs with a 3 year old a 2 year old and 8 month old baby could have been so pleasant =) We stopped twice a day once for gas/food and once for a hotel before 6pm each night. The boys were miracously content on the road for almost the whole trip. I can only come to the conclusion that it was an answer to prayer.

hair Cuts

Noah needed to be held down the whole time

The Boys got haircuts last night our neighbor that supposedly had swine flu came over and cut their hair. I tried to cut Christians hair with our clippers but I didn't seem to be doing too much. thanks Mr. Dion you saved us $20 and some embarrassment at haircuttery.

Swine Flu?

On tuesday my sister left work early because her body felt weak and sore. she looked awful. she took some garlic, fresh juice from a juicer juiceplus capsules, echinecea tea and even some advil. she recovered from the body aches by the next morning. She noticed our neighbor/charlottes friend from churchs'car still outside during the day she came home early and she called him and asked why he wasn't at work and he said he was sick too. On friday I woke up and felt awful, worse than the worse day of any of my pregnancies or labors. It hurt and dizzied me to stand up for my than a few seconds. I was super hot and sweating and had goose bumps. I felt much better saturday but not 100%. At night I started to feel really bad again so my sister got me some tylenol from the store. I have not taken any manmade pain relief in over 3 years! So I really didn't feel good. today I am okay. But now christian has the same thing please pray for him. Charlottes' friend who lives across the street just called her tonight and said that he went to the dr. and him, his girlfriend and a few others were all diagnosed with swine flu...

New Photos!

Studio Max came to the BX a few weeks ago and we got the boys photos done. After much crying and some burger king fries this is what came out. I went to pick up the photos today and the lady tried to sell me a 300.00$$$ package I told her I would get no such package and the cheapest package they had started at 90.00 so after I told her I would not be spending 90.00 on pictures she offered me the unseen deal of 60.00 so I went ahead and got 10 pictures for 60.00. I know it is expensive but atleast Joshua looks super cute! Joshua was All smiles as usual
Noah was easy to please

This is the best that came from Christian

Bush Gardens on a dime

Giddy Up!

Noah getting readay for a 3D movie

On saturday we went to bush gardens which is only a half hour drive from our home in Hampton. We got free parking from charlotte and free tickets from being military dependants! The kids had alot of fun. We fed them luch before we left and the only thing that I bought was kettle corn for 5.44! Who would have thought you could take 3 kids to bush gardens for the day and only spend 5.44! God is good and gives us handfuls of grace on purpose! however only one bag of kettle corn caused an uproar with christian and charlly who both wanted to hold the bag themselves.

Home Away from Home

Here is our room we are staying in until the Lord brings chris back home
I have had fun making it a cozy and organized space for us =) God has been so good to us! I actually like sharing a room with the whole family I think that's what they did in the bible anyhow. I love our room and will probally be taking most everything back to MO with me =) here is our laundry hamper, dresser, lamp, and fur rug.

This is a cute storage ottoman to store toys in while not looking out of place in our bedroom from Target!

I got the photo frame from target and then made pictures with stickers!
