Christmas 2006

This past Christmas was spent right outside of El Paso, Texas in our new house. It was another one away from the family in Georgia, yet spent with each other here. We missed everyone back home, but enjoyed the fact that we were able to celebrate it together. I believe that was the best part, just being with one another, since Kevin was not even supposed to be here this time.

We were able to share Christmas Eve with some of our closest friends out here. There ended up being two other families over to our house for dinner. Melissa and Brittney spent two days straight in the kitchen cooking and baking! Everything turned out great for the dinner on Christmas Eve! The adults all had fun as did the kids!

A way to keep in touch....

I decided to start this blog for a couple different reasons. One, is to keep our family and friends better involved in our lives. The other is to give Kevin something to look at and smile over while he is in Iraq. I hope this helps him through his days out there while he is away from home. As you know by now, Kev was supposed to get out of the Army based on Family Care Plan. A few weeks before he was supposed to be discharged, things changed and he found out that he is able to stay in. They are allowing him to remain here at home with us until a few weeks after Nicholas is born. Then, at that point, he will join his Unit in Iraq. So, we are now looking at the start of May. Please keep him in all of your thoughts and prayers. Pray for a safe return home when this deployment is over with. I know I will be. It will be rough on us all.

Why can't they always be this sweet......

What a look... Is that not a Kevin look?
