where have I been???

Hello All....
Wow, where has the last few months gone too? I am not to sure, but here goes. We are completely moved back from Fort Campbell to Kansas City Kansas. We are finally settled into our house. We have some minor upgrading that we would like to do to the house, but it will come with time and money!!
We had a blessed Christmas and New Year. We are looking forward to what God has instore for us this year.
Kyle is doing well, he is staying home with the girls and doing a GREAT job at it. I am working with his mother, she manages a facility that puts together surgical packs for hospitals. So I am a builder of the packs, it is alot of fun and I enjoy the job. It took awhile for me to get used to working again, but I think I have adjusted well. The girls are loving Dad being at home with them doing their schoolwork.
We lost Kyle's grandma in January, but we know that she is in Heaven and rejoicing with Jesus and is no longer in pain. We will see her again one day! Kyle's sister is having a bagy, she is due the first part of April. I feel honored for her to ask me to be in the delivery room with her. I am excited to see a new neice or nephew come into this world!!

That is all for now, I am going to try and update at least once a week!!! I will get pics up soon too.

Thanks everyone for your continued prayers for our family.

Hello everyone,
Sorry it has been awhile since we updated. The girls and I went back to MO to get our house ready. We don't have computer access there. The house is coming along great. It has been a hard last few weeks being away from our husband and daddy!! We had a great Halloween. I will post pics later. Kylie was "Charpae" from Highschool Musical and Ellianna was Tinkerbell!! They had so much fun.

I made a trip back to Fort Campbell on Saturday, I surprised Kyle because I wasn't suppose to be down until today. It was a GREAT surprise and we are looking forward to our time together. His last day in the Army is this next Wednesday. The movers come on Monday to pack us up and then on Tuesday to move us. Wednesday we will head back HOME!!!

Thanks to everyone praying for us during this time. Thanks for the emails and encouragement.

I didn't really ever think this time would come... well really it still hasn't, but let me explain!
We are still waiting on Kyle's hearing..we should have heard by now, but it is the Army and they can take however long they want. So we have decided to try to move forward with things. Kyle has his ROTC highschool reunion next weekend, so we all are going up for that. The girls and I will stay to do the work on the house that is needed and he will have to return for who knows how long. Hopefully not long, but we just never know anymore. So we are excited to get the house done and then to get moved in.
Today was the girls and I's last Moms Club meeting. We have had a wonderful time with all the mommies and kiddos we have met. We are going to miss them all lots, but hope to stay in touch! I have met some great friends through there!
So that is just a tidbit of what has been going on!!

Cool website!!!

I just wanted to share a website that I came across the other day. It is called Smilebox and you can access it at I used to scrapbook before I had children and now I am so far behind it is so frustrating. Actually I had gotten rid of all of my scrapbooking items awhile back, because I was never going to do it again. I have always thought that I would love to do digital scrapbooking, but there again never have had the time to figure it out. So now a days we all have digiatl cameras, and mine all stay on my computer. I print out ones for gifts and what not, so to make a long story short.... check out this website and see what all you can do with your pictures. My post right before this, I was experminting with it for a slide show. It is free for the basic membership, or it is 5.99 a month for the premimum, which allows you to print out your pages and do more things. But if you get a year membership it is only 39.99, what a great savings!!

So try it out and let me know what you think.

I don't understand WHY

WHY, WHY, WHY is the question I am asking today... Why does the military do the things that they do? Why do they want men and women to sign up to fight for our country and then treat them poorly when they get hurt doing such a thing? Why don't they listen? Why is it that I don't understand? What are we doing wrong?

These are the questions to run through my head today. We just heard back from the medical board office and it wasn't good news.. That is right, the outcome hasn't changed any and we are now stuck. We have to sign the papers and let them be on their way to Washington and then in a matter of weeks we will be out of the military. So what does that mean for our future, we are not sure right now. We have a lot of things to consider, ponder and pray about. After we get out of the Army we can appeal to Washington and see what they say, but as of right now our hopes of that doing anything isn't looking to great.

I just don't understand why this is happening, what are we doing wrong?
