There is so much going on in our lives right now. So many things that I never want to forget and a few storms that I can not wait to pass! Life isn't perfect but the good always out weighs the not so good!
While Leif was out for June, the boys and I took a little get away to see some friends and family. It was the first time all of my friends met Easton and it was so nice of them to all make such an amazing effort to come meet our "little" guy!
I was able to attend my niece Kassidy's award ceremony where she received the top award...the words of her teacher left us all in tears....she is such an amazing young lady!
I was able to spend the day with my 2 favorite girls...there is nothing like playing with your cousins...I am thankful that my family feels the same way...we may not always see eye to eye but we are mature enough to look past our differences for the sake of our children!
The friendships I have are so amazing...My girl Christy and I have been friends since we were 8 years old. Time and distance have been no match for our friendship! I was so glad that I could attend her 30th birthday! Given the chance, I would do anything for my real friends!!!
I took this picture the other day...there are so many things about this that I love. His sweet innocence! The chunky "michelin man arms". The fact that he is sucking his thumb. His sweet little belly. How peaceful he is....THOSE CHEEKS! I really can't believe how blessed I am....
These precious moments will fade quickly...Moments between brothers...the love and protection that Aiden shows for Easton. The hugs, laughs, snuggles and silly faces! I know that there will come a time when these laughs will turn to nagging little arguments but for now I cherish each and every beautiful moment between brothers
...even the questionable ones.
Summertime=pooltime....I am so proud of how far Aiden has come with his swimming! My boy is fairly timid and to say that he is a fish in the water is a complete understatement! This boy is obsessed with swimming! Go Aiden Go!
I AM GOING TO MISS THIS MAN MORE THAN WORDS COULD EVER SAY...
The feelings that go along with deployment are tough...it's hard to enjoy these last few weeks together knowing that he will be leaving soon and will be gone for close to a year. How do you enjoy a vacation that you are only taking because your husband is about to leave and travel into harms way???? I will miss him for so many reasons but everytime he comes home I am reminded that with or without kids...we still have it! He still makes me laugh and I still get excited to see him! I love him and need him not just for the help he gives me with the kids but also for the way he makes me feel about ME!!!!
Each of us has our own beliefs...I believe in the power of prayer...you may not! Whatever you believe, may I ask a favor? Please keep Aiden in your thoughts and/or prayers next week. Right now we do not have a lot of details that we are ready to share but we are certainly praying for the best. We will keep all of our loved ones updated once there is information to share but in the meantime just please pray for our sweet boy and for the best news possible during this stormy weather!
