Christmas 2009......

Let me just start by saying...." I don't like this new way of blogging!!!" There I got that out of the way!!!!

This Christmas was rather different. The kids didn't wake up till about 8:30 Christmas morning. It was nice but that showed me that all the other years IT WAS JEREMY THAT GOT THEM UP SOOOO EARLY!!!!! lol

Anyway, it was a good day over all. I got my Christmas wish by talking to Jeremy. He called right after we had finished opening everything. I sure do miss that boy!! The kids were all happy with what they got for Christmas even though it wasn't much this year. Oh, well that's not what it's all about is it!

Thank you Grandpa and Grannie....the kids loved their presents.

So Proud.........

Sorry that it has taken so long to upload these but.....well you no!!!

Well we have been to Parris Island to see our "new" Marine graduate. It was wonderful to see him. Wow...what a trip! We left home at 4:30am on Wednesday and arrived at our hotel around 4:30pm. The kids did great but needless to say mommy and daddy where "pooped"!

We spent Thrusday with Jeremy on base for a few hours. We drove around so Austin could see all his old spots and then we spent most of our time in the PX. things have changed. The PX was HUGE. Must be nice...we never had anything like that back in our day!!!! lol After we left Jeremy, we headed back to the hotel to see Papa, Grammie and Grandma who had arrived and were waiting on us at the hotel. It was so great for them to come and meet us. I know Jeremy appreciated it and so did we!!!!

Friday....what a day!!! It was full of emotion. We arrived at least an hour before the ceremony and still had to stand. There were NO seats where you could see anything. So we stood along the barrier and everything was fine.....almost! Who would have thought that people from WV would get cold in SC!!!! Well it was windy and chilly. The whole time waiting and through the ceremony....cold! but as soon as they dismissed the troops....the sun came out and warmed everything up!!!! oh well...I made it thanks to Grammie and Grandma trying their best to keep me warm!!!!!

He did it...........!!!!!

I soooo love this mom was proud!

Our kids.....they were so excited to see their "big brother"!

Yet another of my favorites......Austin was so proud!

He may be a Marine now but he still has to look up........

The whole gang.....

Pigging out at Pizza Hut.........this was his first meal "out" in 13 weeks!!!

Leaving PI......Took this pic for Jeremy but he informed that he never wanted to see it

Decorated the car....we got alot of "toots, salutes and honks" on the way home!
