The Big 25!

Well, I turned 25 on Saturday, July 22. Birthdays just aren't what they used to be. I remember all of the anticipation and opening of the presents and cake! And my mom always put the birtday sign on the door and the Happy Birthday table cloth on the table. Great memories! This past few years have been slightly different than that.

Heston took me out to dinner on Friday night and then we went over to some friends house till late. Saturday morning we slept in. I got phone calls from all my family on Saturday so that was nice. Heston bought me a bike and a dozen roses and gave me a really sweet card.

My little brother flew in last night and he brought me gifts from back home. He got me a scrap book for my cat that I REALLY wanted, and my sister got me 2 pairs of cool earrings. My mom sent me the matching canisters for my Pfaltzgraff set - I am so excited to set them up!! I also have some birthday money to spend so I am looking forward to that!

Thank you everybody for the presents!

I made myself cinnamon rolls instead of a cake. They were wonderful! Eat all of this junk food now because in a few weeks I am going on a diet!

Hope you all had a great weekend!

Good-bye Tommy, Tricia & Gabriel

Our good friends, Tommy & Trica, and their little guy Gabriel moved to Kentucky! We will miss them greatly. It is so hard when good freinds move away. We are so happy for them, though, and the opportunity that the Lord opened up for them! Keep in touch guys!!

More Family Pictures from CO

I have been waiting to get a few more pictures from my time in CO, but I just decided to post what I have right now. I got to meet my cousin Mark's little baby, Maddox Mark. He is absolutely adorable! He was born on May 31. He looks like his daddy, and maybe a little like his mommy, Kira!!

All the little cousins. Kaylee-8, Karissa 5, Kara 11 months, Maddox 1 month. Frey family, you may remember Kaylee and Karissa from the weddding. They have grown SO MUCH sine then.

I also got to meet my cousin Lisa's baby girl, Kara. She was born in August, but I had only seen pictures of her!

He is coming home!! FINALLY!

My dear husband is finally coming home! It has been 2 weeks, 2 days, and 22 hours (by the time he comes home tonight) since I have seen him! I am so excited. I am just hoping that he is not so exhausted when he gets home. The time difference is 7 hours so he will get home around 2 am and to him it will fee like 9 am. I hope he can catch up with his sleep sooner than later. Tomorrow is a holiday so that is definately a good thing.
I decided to post some pictures of my wonderful husband of almost 3 years!

Can you tell that Heston is looking forward to being a father? He is going to be a GREAT daddy!! SOMEDAY!!

My wonderful husband...I have missed him so very much!
