Holiday Cheer....

Well, as I sit here typing this it is We are 3 days away from December 1st. Holy cow where has this year gone. We celebrated Thanksgiving here in NC and it was awesome. We had our friend, Kristina over.Her husband Jeremy is deployed to Afghanistan right now and we didn't want her to be alone, she is like family and it was great to have her here. I cooked a huge meal and it turned out much better than I expected!

I definitely have so much to be thankful for this year:

1. My amazing husband, Kyle. He never ceases to amaze me, I am so proud of him for serving our country and being such an incredible person. I love him more than anything and I hope he knows that.

2. Family: We have the best families in the world and they support us no matter what. We love you all!!

3. Great friends: I am soooo lucky to have friends who support me the way they do!!

4. Health- I have been through a lot this year (Kyle and I both), thankfully everything is going well.

I can't believe Christmas is right around the corner. We got all of our decorating done today, and it looks soo awesome. We put our tree up a few weeks ago so we could take our Christmas picture and it came out beautiful! Christmas cards are sealed up and ready to be sent out.

We will hopefully be moving in the next few weeks, they are doing post mandated moves for all the officers in our neighborhood, we will be getting a brand new 4 bedroom house and we can't wait!!! We are spending Christmas here in NC this year and it would be so great if we were in the new house by then. December 12th is the St. Barbara's Day ball and we are soo excited!! It's the first time we have been able to attend as Kyle was in the field with the White Falcons last year. It will be great to support the Field Artillery soldiers.

We are going to miss our families so much at Christmas this year, but they understand that we can't be there. Thank goodness for webcams we will definitely be using them! It will be especially hard for us not seeing our 3 year old niece, Kylie on Christmas morning, but we got a very special book for her of us reading her "The Night Before Christmas", we hope she loves it as much as we love her!

Happy Holidays Everyone!

Gone too fast...

Gosh, I can't believe that it's already November!! This year is going by too fast! It has been a while since I have updated this and I apologize. Well let's see whats new:

* Kyle has been working VERY long nights getting ready for Change of Command

* We had an awesome Halloween of passing out candy with our friend, Kristina...watching movies and just relaxing.

* Kyle has been playing with the battalion soccer team and they have made the playoffs, it has been a lot of fun!!

We have a lot that will be happening in the next few weeks, Kyle will be welcoming Capt. Coulter to HHB as the new commander and hopefully the long nights will go away for a long time. We have the St. Barbara's Day ball next month and I can't wait. I bought a beautiful new dress for it and I can't wait to wear it!

There are 2 very special birthdays this month, our adorable niece, Kylie will be turning 3!! OMG she is getting so big so fast. It makes me so sad, I remember the day she was born it was such an awesome day (even though I had the flu haha, yes I still remember that), she is so awesome.. Also, my wonderful sister, Lisa will be celebrating her 28th birthday! She is the best and I love her so much! It's a great month!

I can't believe Thanksgiving is right around the corner...gosh then Christmas will be here!! We are going to be taking our Christmas picture already so I can get our cards ordered and ready to go, I'm so excited!! Yay for Holidays!! :)
