Where Has The Time Gone?

Has it really been a month since I have posted here? Holy cow, time sure has flown by! So much going on I can't believe that I haven't kept all 3 of my readers updated! Seriously-you all need to start commenting on here-it isn't painful, I promise, but you are giving me a serious complex since I track how many hits and from where they come-why oh why do you all hover beneath the shadow of lurkdom? Don't be afraid-come into the light! :)

Anyhoo-Dreamsicle is exploding in her personality. How did we get to be the lucky ones that parent the happiest toddler in the world? Seriously, this girl is happy. I'm a little on the high energy side but she makes me look like I'm an 87 year old with her exuberance and love for life. Every day is joyful. Seriously. She is talking constantly. We can only understand about 25% of what she is saying but that doesn't stop her, no sirree-she just looks at you, cocks her little head, shrugs her little shoulders and soldiers on with her conversation. She has much to say and will not be stopped! Oh boy is McGyver in trouble when he finally can understand her, she has herself some serious Daddy love conversations with him.

In the big boys news...We are almost done! Chester will be back on US soil soon! Soon people! Not soon enough for me but soon enough that I need to make flight reservations ASAP! This has been a looooong 7 months. U-Haul is currently signing his enlistment papers for the Navy as I type this. Honestly-what is it with my children? I'm amazingly proud of their desire to serve their country but two in at once? I have taken up running. I've never run a day in my life but I need to release this nervous energy I have seemed to have picked up in some way. So far I can run a whopping 1/2 mile but my goal is to get up to 3 miles. I may be old but I'm determined! Please say a prayer that my body cooperates with my will to do this.

Well, I think I have rambled on enough for one post. I have many pictures to post so stay tuned!
