Chloe's 1 year photo shoot

I was able to do a one year photoshoot for a friend. It was very fun especially with extra little kids running around and getting in front of the camera...namely Skylin. Karlie was a big help too with getting her to smile with toys and talking to her. It is too cute! Whether she ends up being a photographer or not she is going to know how to do it well. I love watching her!! Chloe was such a cute little model for the camera. She did great! Thanks Sheila!

Leaving on a Jet Plane

Today Myles left for his second tour of Iraq. He is going to Baghdad on FOB Liberty. Here is the low down for the Farewell. On Friday night we had a friend watch the kids and I went with Myles to post at 7:30. He was leaving at 12:15 so between those two times we just waited...and waited...and waited. We had one false alarm formation and then the buses finally came and they loaded up and left. I got home at 1:00 and at 3:00 I got a call from Myles saying to come pick him up because the airplane never left Kuwait. The plane that was there wasn't for So I loaded up the kids in the middle of the night and drove back to post to pick him up. Note to friends here... I would have asked you to babysit but I decided if I woke up the kids and took them then I could sleep in longer. The rest of the day was very LAZY and the kids went to sleep at a wonderful time. We woke up at 3:00 Sunday morning and dragged the kids out of bed to take with us this time. We waited around at the company until 8:00 a.m. Up until this point Karlie was saying she wasn't going to be sad this time and was just excited about the puppy she was going to get when daddy came home. When he was going to get on the bus Karlie broke down in a run to him and started crying right when he was about to step onto the bus. I'm pretty sure I wasn't the only one that she made cry. Little kids are the hardest to watch say goodbye. When we were leaving Karlie said, "Mommy, I just love Daddy." while she was crying. A little bit later she said, "I wasn't going to be sad, but I am." Oh man! How sad is that. She cried for I think about 15 minutes straight. Myles just called me at 5:45 and said they were in Maine making their first stop on their way. We love him very much and will see him soon....well, in a year.

These next four are of the first night that he came back home.

Couple Photoshoot

We finally got our couple pictures done just in time before Myles left for Iraq. We went back to the stream by the river we found the day before. Now I can maybe have a larger selection of pictures of Myles and me for this coming deployment.

Our little Adventure!!

So today we were on our way to go to the park when Trevon had to go pee. We are currently TRYING to potty train him, which by the way is MUCH harder than Karlie was. We turned onto the next little side road we came to and let him have a bonding pee moment with his daddy. Too bad I didn't have my camera for that picture. Anyways, Myles, being a very curious guy and loves to know where every road goes, continued on down the road that had signs of a restricted area some where near there. If I were driving I would have turned around, but I wasn't driving. Just to make a note, we didn't go into any restricted area. We just drove past the restricted area. Just a little drive down this little bumpy road and a short hike later this is were we ended up. It was way more fun than going to a park for all of us! Trevon got soaked in the icy cold water but didn't mind it one bit. Karlie kept sliding down the huge rocks and Skylin tried a little of both.
