Where's my Beer?

I think this picture speaks for itself :P

It all started with a Mouse

Ben has a new love for all things Mickey Mouse so we decided to change his room a bit. I made him a not so little quilt and changed out his lamp and now we are just waiting on the wall boarder. Every time he goes into his room he squeals like a little girl and points to all the Mickey's. My little boy is growing up so fast and everyday he shows us that he is not a baby anymore and so wants to be a big kid!

What I want to be when I grow up

After a long trip to Chicago and Florida I just knew someone was going to get sick and it just happened to be Ben and I. After 10 days of fighting the fevers and cough we headed to the Ped's clinic on Wednesday and then over to Flight Medicine Thursday, back again Friday and after the long weekend had me back in Tuesday. While waiting Friday for a breathing treatment Ben discovered the stirrups on the table and that he could pull then out and open them up. He of course thought this was super cool, but I wasn't so sure about this new found toy. I quickly grabbed the camera from the diaper bag and asked him what he was doing. The expression on his face is so cute and innocent. when Adam got home I told him about the picture and that his son was going to be a Gynecologist when he grew up :) Ben is going to kill me for this picture when he's a teenager!!

What time is it?

So now when you tell Ben it's "Tubby Time" this is what happens in our house. He's even tried to get his tubbies a little early by taking the diaper off and running around the house. He wanted a tubby so bad the other night that he wouldn't keep his diaper on so we just let him walk around naked.

Helping someone in need

The military has funny ways of connecting individuals. Sometimes you meet them directly, through friends or sometimes not at all and just know each other from mutual friends and develop a friendship even if it's miles and miles apart. Carrie has a friend Shelley she met while stationed here at Edwards the 1st time and they are in the process of expanding their family and adopting a little girl from Korea. This situation has truly touched my heart because you never know how God is going to bless you. Please go check out Their amazing story will touch your heart!

does this bow make my head look big?

We had an absolute blast in Florida over Christmas break. We were able to be there for my friend Roberta to deliver her second baby a little girl named Nora Caitlin. We spent Christmas Eve with the Marlins out in Destin Commons letting the kids see Santa and then play on the playground. Ben went to see Ms. Glenda for his first haircut. He was such a big boy sitting in that chair and we were all amazed at how still he sat for her. We had tons of fun with my brother and his family and Ben really enjoyed playing with his cousins Mikayla and Adelyn and loved riding the carousel on Tuesday nights at the mall. It was sad to say goodbye to everyone but we know we'll see them soon.

thanks for a wonderful Christmas!!!
