Happy Birthday Brittany!

Happy Birthday Brit! We miss you bunches and hope to see you soon! We had a very lazy weekend! Saturday, John played in the volleyball tournament here on base. They lost both games but still had tons of fun playing! It was nice to finally meet some of the people he works with. Yesterday, we went to church at Berean Baptist again and then were invited over to a very sweet couple's home for lunch. Hydie loves church!!! She gets so excited when they start singing and then of course goes to sleep during the message. So far, we haven't had to take her to the nursery because she is so good! Lunch went well. There were three other families besides us there so it was nice to fellowship with other Baptist believers. Yesterday afternoon, John had the second volleyball game, and Hydie and I went to a Taste of Home party at Becca's and had a blast! Oh by the way, I booked my flight home!!! We will be in Mississippi March 4th-19th! I can't wait to see everybody!

Keeping Busy!

We seem to have kept ourselves pretty busy this week. Tuesday was of course Craftnite and Jana made Hydie this adorable sling! We love it! I can actually cook dinner and clean the house while "holding" Hydiebug. Wednesday, Lisa brought over 2 other slings that she's letting us have. The blue sling is for water. It's made out of this mesh material so water can go through easily when you are in the pool! I can't wait to try it out!!! Yesterday, we had a cleaning day and Hydie finally decided that she REALLY likes her jumparoo! She is still too short to touch the floor so I put blankets under her and all around her in the seat. She is too cute! Last night we had Marlene and her little boy over for supper. It was so nice to finally have friends to invite over! Today, we had a playdate at my friend Winona's house and it was nice to meet more new people. Of course, Hydie wasn't much into playing so she decided that it was more fun to sleep! The past few days have been pretty sunny and the snow/ice is melting in place...I actually can see GRASS in places! However, I just looked outside and of course it's snowing again!

Happy Birthday Mimi!

Happy Birthday Mimi Janice!!! Also, Happy President's Day!! We have had a pretty relaxing weekend. We went to church yesterday at Berean Baptist Church. It was a nice little church. We enjoyed the service and the people were all so nice! We even got an invite to eat lunch at a lady's house next Sunday! They really did make us feel at home!! On our way into town this weekend, I remembered my camera and took a few picture through the car window. I will try to take some better ones on a clearer day but it was snowing/raining pretty good all weekend!

We seem to have finally gotten back into our routine since John's back! This week we've been pretty busy. I've had a few dr. appointments and such, but of course I went to Craftnite Tuesday night!!! Craftnite was great; however, it was the first time I have ever left Hydie with John so to say the least, Mommy was a little nervous. I knew he would be totally fine but I still had Mommy butterflies! Everything went GREAT and they were even in the bed asleep when I got home! It was so nice to be able to go hang out for a few hours with adults without baby.
Wednesday, I finally got Hydie rolling over on video!!! I started the camera after she had already rolled a little but got most of it!!! We had a good Valentine's Day yesterday. I got up and cooked breakfast and had John and Hydie's happies set up for them. It was a nice morning and Hydie LOVES her books and alligator!! I got my Valentine's (a Wii) a little early and I absolutely LOVE it!!! I can't wait till Wii Fit comes out!!

The past few days we have definitely had our share of winter weather! Saturday (the day John was suppose to fly in) we had a blizzard...It was crazy! This was the first time I have ever experience anything like that. The winds were like 70 mph gusts!!! Can you say, blow me away??? To say the least pretty much everything was shut down for the day. While the blizzard was flying Hydie and I around (not really...we didnt leave the house), John was flying home! Well everything was going good besides the weather here until he got to Seattle. His plane was delayed 3 hours because the cargo guy couldn't get the door open....To say the least, John was very frustrated because that meant he missed his flight from Anchorage to Kodiak. When he finally made it to Anchorage he was informed that the 2 other flights going out Saturday were booked and he would have to spend the night in Anchorage. He finally made it home at 8 a.m. on Sunday morning but his luggage didn't quite make it until 5 yesterday afternoon. John did have to go to work today and we are back to our normal routine. I will try to take some pictures but yesterday I forgot my camera when we went driving around so hopefully we will be able to go sometime this week and take some pictures!

We had a good 3 month birthday yesterday! She is getting soooo big! So, I wanted to thank CiCi and Pop-Pop for the mobile! Hydie LOVES it! Also, Aunt Sharon, thank you so much for Hydie's V-day card! So, nothing very exciting has happen lately...JOHN COMES HOME TOMORROW!! I am so excited, so is he!!! He tried to get a flight out today but it didn't work out. Here's a little video of Hydie watching her new mobile and a picture of her standing up!

Our Day!

Ah, what a day! Well Hydie and I didn't quite make it to MOPS this morning but hopefully will be able to make it next time! However, we did go to town with our new friend Lisa. We went to Wal-Mart and then she showed me the "sights" that John hadn't shown me yet and to say the least I didn't want to venture off by myself and get stuck somewhere. So it was so nice to finally see things here other than Wal-Mart!!! We got home around 2 p.m. and rested and talked to John. He is still doing good but is now really counting down the days till he is HOME! At 6 p.m. we went to my new favorite time of the week, Craftnite at Jana's!!
Looky what I made (well, with a little of Jana's help)!!! I am going to hang it in Hydie's room to put her coats on! I am so excited!!! Tomorrow will be Hydie's 3 month birthday but I'll write about it tomorrow!!!

Happy Birthday Papaw Fatty!

The past couple of days have been pretty boring around our house. It was so good to talk to Aunt Sharon, Aunt Sue, James Robert, Uncle Fred, and of course CiCi and Pop-Pop on the web-cam Sunday! I wish we could have been there Sunday for Papaw Fatty's birthday lunch...HAPPY BIRTHDAY PAPAW!!!! We miss you all dearly, think of you often and pray for everyone daily! John is still in school and has LOTS of homework.
Oh, Hydie has found her new best friend...her bird thing hanging from her boppy thing! She is so funny...she will sit there for about 30 minutes and just talk and talk to the bird. She is growing up so fast! I am trying to take in every moment that I have with her because before I know it, she will be in high school and not have time for Momma. Ok, enough of that...she is beginning to sit up alot better in her bumbo. She even fell asleep in it while we were playing the other day! I am so excited about tomorrow! We are going to MOPS (Mothers of Pre-Schoolers) tomorrow morning and Craftnite tomorrow night! We actually have social things to do!!! Also, we are excited that we are going to visit our first church Sunday morning!! God is good..All the time!!!

Hydie's Room

I took some pictures of Hydie's room. It's not completely done but I thought I would let ya'll know what it was looking like. She is actually not sleeping in her room yet, but we have decided that we are going to try to let her sleep in her room when John gets back. I am not excited about this because that means my baby is growing up and I don't like those words! Hydie will be 3 months old next Wednesday!! She is becoming such a little miss independent! She wants to stand ALL the time! She loves to play on the floor and have "tummy time" and she absolutely LOVES to look at herself. She will stop everything she is doing and just look at herself for minutes at a time! I tried to tape her rolling over today but of course our little Hydie refused to do it when Mommy had the camera out! John is half way through with his school and is really ready to be home!
