Yep. My sweet soldier was deploying. Again.
I had all these great intentions to use our time apart as blog-time.
Being both mom and dad to two sweet monkeys, keeping up a house, paying bills, and dealing with two very stubborn (but paid-off) cars, took up most of my time.
But...there's always a light at the end of every tunnel.
After 335 days apart (yes, I counted...),
We're a complete family again!
I rarely post pictures of myself or our family, but I thought these were post-worthy.
There's nothing quite like an Army welcome home ceremony, so I thought I would share.
Here we go...
Smellin' sweet and looking good!
Little dude's been waiting for almost a year.
The 2 hour wait for daddy's arrival almost sent him over the edge!
Doing the 'Wave!
And here's what we've been waiting for!
Open the floodgates!
Trying to find each other!
(or as my daughter says, "ewwwwww...")
I have to give major props to my friend Amy (another awesome Army wife) for taking our pictures.
Amy is starting her own photography business (hello? she's good!),
and I'll post her link as soon as she has it ready to fly!
Last night we attended a welcome home bash, known as Denim & Diamonds.
We had a great time!
So now that life has returned to a more normal state, I do have so much to share!
I still have to get down with the details of the Country Living Fair,
share some Euro travel tips,
and so much more!
Headed off to link-up with some other fun-lovin' blog mamas!
Amy's Just for Fun Friday hop!
