Deployment Weekly Recap: Week 9!

Emotional: I'm doing good! It's almost December!!!!

Physical: Doing good! My only problem is I've been having a hard time falling asleep at night.

Communication: A few great emails and a surprise one on Thanksgiving!

What's something fun you did this week: The FRG has been doing some great events and it's been so nice to get out and do fun things with great people!

What are you looking forward to next week: The movies with Steph!!!!
What made you happy this week: Setting up the tree with Little on Thanksgiving night. We always set it up in the dark(with the lights of the tree on), drink cocoa and listen to Christmas music! It was really amazing spending that time with him in our first home.

What made you sad/mad this week: Charlee got out and long story short, the people a few houses over aren't high on my list. They were nice enough but the teenage boy was not too pleasant. He's one of those know it all kids and was going on and on about what I should do. Then they informed me that they fed her! She had only been gone for 30 minutes! She wasn't starving and now, she is going to get sick(which happenes when you feed a dog food their stomaches aren't used to!). It was a major hassle!

What do you miss this week: J's help when something goes wrong. It's nice to have a back up and someone to help.

How's Landon this week: He's had a few whiny moments and some REALLY amazing ones. I'm so happy that hes doing so well this deployment(I really think our count down helps a lot!)

Favorite song/show/movie of the moment: Anything Christmas!

Pictures from this week:

Little told me he wanted to get pictures with Santa this year. He was so cute and I even overheard him tell Santa that if he can't bring him anything, It's ok, that he just really wants him to bring his mom a nice surprise. He's so sweet.

J sent me a new house for my Mickey Village!(the yellow one!). I'm so excited to really start collecting them!

I got the digital download of Little's school pictures yesterday! I love them! I was worried this year because they have to wear uniforms to school. But, I think they turned out adorable!

Me & Little at Clyde's Cider Mill with some of the ladies from the boat. We had a great time!

I've been working on building the Mickey's Christmas Carol Village collection! I don't think I want them ALL - I just want the pieces I like. I guess that would make me hard to shop for, huh? lol

LOVE the Christmas tree traditions! This is our first christmas in our first house as a married couple where he'll be around! Already looking for traditions! How did the Christmas tree thing with Little come about?

I don't exactly remember how it started. I felt like doing it in the dark with just the Christmas lights made it a little more special! The cocoa and music just adds a nice touch and L looks forward to it every year now. We also exchange PJ's and ornaments every Christmas Eve. Because J and I have been together since 2001(and we started this tradition while dating) our tree has amazing ornaments that means so much to us! When we got married we had enough special ornaments that we didn't have to run out and buy any when we put up our first tree!
