Just More of This and That

I don't have tons to tell you today, just two big things:

Number One--David found out when he leaves for basic, and that is January 25th. He'll be there for about 9 1/2 weeks and then start his individual training for another 9 weeks or so. Oh, and its in South Carolina, he's never been past I think Montana, so big change for him! Hopefully they're going to give him a couple days to come home when the baby's born (I hope, I hope, I hope!!), but other than that, after January we won't see Dave until the end of June-ish. Crazy crazy crazy...I can't think about it anymore or I'LL be going crazy! Oh and also, he didn't get to do Military Intelligence like he wanted, but he'll be doing like HR work, so he'll be like an office guy sort of thing. So there you go with all that.

Number Two--it was Maddie's birthday Sunday, she turned FOUR YEARS OLD!! I can't believe how fast the time goes and how old my kids are getting! I wish I could add the pictures from the party but I can't take the pictures off my camera onto this computer so that part sucks. :( Since her birthday was on Sunday we just had a little party at my mom's house with cousins and aunts and uncles and such, and it was a good old time! I decided on Saturday that I was going to bake her a fun cake, and let her choose one from a book I had. She chose a castle sort of cake, so I said okey dokey! Except it didn't really want to cooperate with me, the cake broke when I tried to take it out of the pan, so I had to sort of operate on it, then I burned my finger pretty bad (good enough to get one of those burn blisters--ouch!) and things were falling over and I was getting messy and bah! Oh well, it got done and she liked it so thats all that matters! She loved her presents and loved Aunt Bev story telling to them, it was great fun had by all! (Well, hopefully everyone had fun, atleast all the kids really did! haha)

So anyway, those are the big things that have been going on this past week and I'm excited for all the fun Christmas stuff coming up, it will be great! (Not that I can post pictures to show you or anything...heh heh)

3 awesomeness!...and attractiveness!:

Wow, that is a lot of stuff going on. What are you going to do without your hubby? So can you be with him during the second part of his training? Let me know if I can come help when you have the baby. Miss you guys. Happy belated birthday Maddie.

Ok, so as far as Dave being an office guy, they typically call that a "Pogue" in the military. Which is why when people answer the phone at Lee's work and I ask for "Sargent Pogue" people think I'm making a joke.. unless they know him.. and end up asking "who?!" but at least that makes Dave even more a part of the family right? I always thought it was kinda funny. And Maddie's cake was adorable! I'm impressed.

I'm so excited about Dave's new job. Even though it'll be hard for you to be with out him. I'm so glad you get to be here with Family!

Sorry I missed Maddie's birthday. Ehlana wasn't feeling good and man was she ever cranky. Steve took her home early from church to spare the Nursery leaders. I hope to see you soon!
