Kids say the darnest things.....

At Cassie's house the other night and Big Al was watching sandlot and we were hanging around the table 15 feet away laughing and talking....

Alex yells across the room...."MOM, I'm trying to hear this, Just drink your wine"

He told me!

Emotional Rollercoaster

Such is the life of a military spouse but I am going to stay positive through our 3rd deployment because well I deserve it!  Its been a rough, amazing, sad, ecstatic, lonely and breathtaking 4 years and I am glad that this emotional roller coaster will be coming to an end in May.  Just wanted to take a trip down memory lane....enjoy!

Starting again....

My last post was almost a year ago when Dealer 54 was shot down in Afghanistan.  Its been quite an interesting year, as that event effected Patrick and I more than we thought it would and still does.

Even though I hate when "non military" people say it.....

Freedom is not Free

I am going to start back up on this blog because I want Alex to look back and see the silly stuff he used to do and say when he was little.  I got a journal and wrote it in one time (that was a month ago), I am more of a computer girl.  So here we go.

Well not really we are heading to HAWAII for the 4th of July to celebrate this wonderful country, being an American and of course those who have fought, continue to fight and and the hero's that gave their lives defending our flag.

I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty, and justice for all.
