Another month is gone...

I can't believe today is the last day of May!! This year is flying by!

Kyle is finally finished with Jump Master school, but not with the result that we had hoped. He unfortunately failed, because of not making time by 4 seconds! He was incredibly disappointed, but is going to try and go back in a week. So he is back to work at the company and getting back into the swing of things.

We had a Hail and Farewell on Friday night at Col. LaNeve's house, it was a lot of fun! We got 2 White Falcon Mugs which are pretty awesome! We had some friends over afterwards...we played some guitar hero and watched Super Bad. It was a great night! Yesterday, we went over to our friends Ed and Melanies for a bbq, we had a good time.

I have been keeping busy with planning a party at my house for Tuesday. My friends and I will be welcoming a new army wife, Kim to Fort Bragg! Im really looking for to it. Im taking her around on Monday to help her get acclamated. I'm also getting very excited for my friend Desiree's wedding on July 5th. She has a few of us to be her bridesmaid and I'm honored to be a part of it! I bought my dress last week and I love it!! :) It's going to be a beautiful wedding!

Kyle and I are super excited that we have 3 weeks until our 1 year anniversary!! :) Although we have had our ups and downs, we are incredibly happy! :) Time has definitely flown by!

2nd Brigade Ball

Well, last night we the 2nd Brigade Ball and we had such a great time!! It was a great chance to hang out with everyone and just cut loose and have fun! We sat with Capt. Montgomery, the new Commander of Alpha Company, his wife Carrie, 1SGT Adams and his wife Kim, and Lt. Grant and his gf Erin! We had a great table!! When we got there we went right in to get pictures done, hopefully we will have them soon. We had a great guest speaker Lt. General Austin, the commanding general of the XVIII Airborne Corps. After the formal portion was over with we all moved to the dance floor and let loose!! It was great seeing everyone dancing and having a great time!! :)

These next few weeks are going to be busy as well...lots of FRG obligations and hanging out with friends. :)

Kyle is almost finished with his second week of JumpMaster school and he has passed 3 tests so far! :) All he has left is JMPI and PWAC! Everyone keep your fingers crossed!! I will update everyone next week on his progress!

Half way through May...

Wow! I can't believe it's already May 16th! This year is flying by!! It has been a busy month so far and there are no signs of slowing down. Kyle is currently in Jumpmaster school, so he has been busy studying and memorizing lots of information. This coming up week is All American Week, unfortunately Kyle isnt able to participate in any of the events, but I will be there supporting our Brigade and Battalion during the events. We have our Regimental Ball on May 20th and I am super excited!!! :) I wasnt able to attend last year, so we are both looking forward to it!
We had an awesome day today! My friend Kristina and her husband Jeremy hosted a barbeque at their house today with our group of friends! :) Her husband is home on R&R from his deployment it was great to meet him! We had an awesome time!!
Tomorrow is my moms birthday and I just wanted to wish her a Happy Birthday!! Love you, Mom!! :)

Welcome Logan and Kaylee Alsup!!

Well today has been a very exciting day!! Our great friends Janis and Drew Alsup welcomed their twins at 4:30am!! Logan Kane who weighed in at 6lbs 6oz and Kaylee Jayne who weighed 6lbs 2oz! Kyle and I were lucky enough to have their 1 year old Emily today and also very blessed to have spent almost 2 hours visiting with the newborns! :) They are two of the most beautiful babies I have ever seen! :) We enjoyed our visit with them. I am headed back to the hospital tomorrow to spend more time with them! I so enjoyed being able to hold them, of course Kyle was scared at first, but he got the hang of it! Here are a few holding Kaylee and Kyle holding logan! :)

Another week gone by...

Its been a while since Ive posted a new blog so I figured it was about time! :) The last few weeks have been pretty busy for us. My friend Anna invited Kyle and I to her sons, Trenton and Griffins soccer games over the weekend, we had a great time watching all the kids play! We also were very excited to finally meet Mason Bauer, our friends Matt and Jess' newborn son. We spent Sunday at their house and had a cook-out. It was great to hang out and of course I was in heaven holding little Mason, he is such a sweet baby.

I was invited to a Division Volunteer Appreciation Ceremony on the 28th with several other ladies from our battalion. It was awesome!! It was a great turn out and I enjoyed listening to the 82nd Airborne Choir sing. Kyle has been increasingly busy as well, with his Company Commander and XO gone to JRTC, Kyle has been the acting Company Commander and XO, along with doing his normal job of FSO (fire support officer). He will be entering JumpMaster School on May 11th and we are both very excited!! He has wanted to do this for a while now!

I, thankfully am getting over the flu, after the ceremony on Tuesday, I was down for the count for 2 days, but am much better now! Kyle had a night jump on Tuesday and from what he said, he had a pretty rough landing, so he has been nursing a pretty bad headache all week. He seems to be better today. He has more guts than I do to jump from a plane!

We dont have any big plans for the weekend, except for getting some much needed cleaning done and planting some flowers outside! :) We hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!!
