Time seems to be going pretty fast, but yet so slow.  My Grandma has been here for 10 days so far and is loving it!  We are going to be going to the Marine Corps Birthday Ball tomorrow night and we are both really excited!  Before she leaves, we will be going to the Aquarium, the Botanical Gardens, the Pineapple Factory, and Shuri Castle.  Im excited to get out and sight see since I didnt do that too much when I was here before.

Not too much longer and Bill will be home.  I cant wait!!!  Time needs to fast forward.  Im SO excited for him to see the kids and meet Bradyn for the first time!  Ill definitely try to take pictures....but not too sure how well they will turn out with tears coming down my face!  lol

Well, just thought that I would write a little note in here to keep everyone updated.  Ill definitely post pictures after the MC Ball tomorrow night!  :)

Home Sweet Home!

Im FINALLY back in Okinawa.....and have Grandma with me!  We got here last Friday (5 days ago).  Time has went fast so far, but thats okay.  We have just been around the house most of the time getting things cleaned and organized.  We have been on a few trips out in to town and Grandma is always in awe.  There is SO much to see and take in.  This weekend I am getting a sitter so Grams and I can have time together for a few hours.  Then, next Tuesday is the Ball.  We are both really excited.  I cant believe that I talked Grams in to wearing a dress AND wearing make-up!  lol  We will definitely take LOTS of pictures! 

Im SO excited for Bill to get home.  Not too much longer!!!!  :)  Im REALLY excited for him to take some leave so it is just US as a FAMILY!  Ahh.....Im thinking that I will be in HEAVEN when that time comes!

Well, time to get all of us settled for the night.  Ill keep everyone updated on how things are going!  :)

In the blink of an eye....

Im thinking that in the blink of my eyes, I will be in Japan with my kids and my Grandma.  Time has been going by VERY fast.  Im am ALL ready to go....just waiting for our flight date to get here.  Things have been pretty crazy and busy the last week or so.  I am FINALLY moved out of the apartment......which was a little sad since that was home for so many months.  I am now living with my International Sidekick Keri (AKA my Cousin!!)  It has been great to have her around.  Im going to miss her and her boys SOO much!  We have gotten soo much closer in the last few months.  But, Im also SOO ready to be back with my Husband.  I cannot wait until I get the call saying that he will be back on a certain day.  Im counting down until the day that I was told that he will be back but as a Military know that things ALWAYS change and you cannot think that it will go as planned. 

We have quite a bit planned while my Grandma is in Japan with me.  She is going to be there for a WHOLE month!  Im totally excited and I know that she is too. 

Kadynce has been doing pretty well with her attitudes lately so I am hoping that this stage goes away soon!!!  lol  Bradyn is awake more often and definitely WAY more alert.  He will be crawling soon....and Im soo excited!  He usually just scoots backwards since he hasnt figured out how to go forwards yet....haha.  :)  Im thinking that Kadynce is waiting for her Daddy to get home so she can start talking.  She has her own words that she says and I can only understand a few of them sometimes. 

Im hoping to be able to blog one or two more times before I leave for Japan in a 9 days but only time will tell since there is LOTS going on!!!  :)

T-minus HOW MANY DAYS...?!?

As time seems like it keeps going faster and faster, I realize that I have only 3 1/2 more weeks here in Iowa!  I have been trying not to stress out over the packing and moving.....but it is slowing coming on.  It feels like a NEVER ending thing! 

Bradyn is now almost 5 1/2 months old, and growing like a weed!  He gets more and more entertaining and silly as he gets older.  :)

Kadynce is about 18 months now and already has her attitudes and tantrums.  We have mostly good days, but there are always the couple in the week that are just horrible!!

Bill has been doing great (so he says)!  We just sent him a few boxes so he should be getting them soon!!  That is my FAVORITE thing to do.  :)  Im starting to work on the next couple of boxes since they will be his last ones!  It is a sad moment but it just means that time is getting CLOSER!!!!! 

Grams and I are getting SOO excited to travel back to Japan.  I think that she is just as nervous to travel with the 2 kids as I am though!!  I have NO CLUE how it will go.  Im hoping for the best.  Our layovers are not very long at all so I am hoping that that helps!  Total travel time is 23 hours.....WOW! 

I have been keeping VERY busy and doing a MILLION things!  Theres not a lot of time for myself so I take it when I get it!!  Right now, I am okay with this since I am trying to get everything else done but I cant wait until Bill is home and we get family time!!!!!  Im thinking a mini vacation when he gets back and over the Holidays....hmmm!!!!  ;)

You'll be my glass of Wine and I'll be your shot of Whiskey....

Just when I think that someone brings me down, I always have a pick me up!!  My Husband is the BEST thing that has EVER happened to me.  I have no clue where I would be if I didnt have him in my life.  I could be having the WORST day and when I see pictures of my Husband or get to hear his voice, every thing is all better!  I LOVE waking up to his emails and being able to see how he is doing.  His voice is the best thing that I could EVER hear!  I get butterflies every time that I hear his voice or get to see him on the webcam.  I cant wait until I am in his arms again.  

Time is going fast but the day that he gets back cant be here soon enough!  I just want to be in his arms again!  I want his arms wrapped around me and his skin next to mine.  

I cant believe that it has already been 8 months that we have lived apart.  I dont want to be away from him any longer.....but I know that I have to be.  I think that this has been a great experience for us but I just want it to end!!!!  I just want our normal family life back!  I want to live like a "normal" family!  LOL.....I dont think that it will ever be "normal" but we will make it as normal as we can!  :)  I want Bill to be the Daddy that he has been waiting to be!  I know that he is just as excited to be back to normal as I am!  

I have 66 days left here in the States!  Im SOO ready to be back there.  I want the kids to be able to experience the Japanese culture as much as they can.  I know that they are a little young for a lot of things but I will try to get them as involved as I can.  I think that they will enjoy this adventure when they get older and have the pictures to show where they have lived and what they were able to do.  Until then....I will be packing and going through all of our things to decide what we are going to take back with us and what we are going to sell.  I hate having to move but this time I am actually excited to do it!  :)

When things get rough...

When things get rough, I look at my children.

When things get rough, I look at pictures of my Husband.

When things get rough, I remind myself that it could always be worse.

The last month has went really fast.  I cant believe that my Little Prince is 3 1/2 months old already!  In the blink of an eye he will be 7 months old and waiting for his Daddy to get home to see him!

We have had pictures taken to send to Bill.....and I LOVE them!  I cant wait until he gets to see them too!!!!  He is going to love them too!

We are half way through the deployment....and yes, it is going fast.  I cant wait to be in my Husbands arms again.  2 1/2 months until I go back to Japan....and as every day passes, I get more and more excited.

I have been spending a lot of time with my cousin Keri and her Fiance Jr.  They are helping keep my mind on positive things and not sitting at home. 

Kadynce is getting big and starting the terrible 2's!!!  I cant wait until her Dad comes home so he can help out with her!  LOL 

I know that it has been awhile since I have written on here, so I will try to make time more often!  :)

As time flies by... has been a month since I have written on here!  Time is going SO FAST!  Bradyn is already 2 months old!!!  I cant believe it!  Only 4 months left before I go back to Japan.  Im SO ready!  I just know that not too long after I go back my Husband will be back with us! 

I have gotten to chat with Bill quite a bit lately!  Thanks A LOT to WiFi!!  :)  We even get to webcam!  The only thing that I dislike about seeing him on the webcam is seeing him sad when he gets to see the kids.  I know that it is just as hard on him as it is me....but he HAS to have it worse!  He dont get to see the kids every day like I do.  I know that he would LOVE to!  We hate being apart from each other but time is going soo fast that Im sure it will feel like tomorrow we will all be together again!  Until then, we just have to webcam and chat!  (which we are both okay with!!)

Kadynce LOVES seeing her Daddy on the webcam!  She just wants to stand in front of the computer and wave and blow kisses to him the whole time!  Its SOOO cute!  And to see the smiles on Bills face when he gets to see her is priceless!!  Bradyn was awake today when we got to chat and cam so Bill got to see him!!!  It was GREAT!  

It was great having the hour with my Husband today!  He is the best Husband and Daddy that anyone could want...and I HAVE HIM!!!!  I love him SO much and cant wait to be in his arms again....soon!!!!  <3

Just checkin' in... :)

I havent written on here for a few days so I thought I would give some updates.  Bill is doing he says!!  He is working REALLY long hours in the HORRIBLE heat!  I feel so bad for him!  Im hoping that time is going just as fast for him as it is me!  I cant believe that Bradyn is almost a month old already!!  Where has the time went?!? 

Bradyn is doing very well even after the tests that we had to go through.  It turns out that surgery or further tests are not necessary.  Thank gosh!  I wouldnt be able to handle any of that without Bill here!

Kadynce is doing great and growing like a weed!  She is definitely my lil' princess.....but has been VERY moody lately!  She misses her Daddy....just like I do!  We still have Daddy Time and she LOVES that!  She listens to his books and looks at his pictures.  It melts my heart to see her get so excited to see him! 

Im HOPING that we will get to webcam with Bill soon!  I miss his face!  I love him VERY much and cant wait to be in his arms again.  :)

Phone Call #1

Today I got my 1st phone call from Bill!!!!!  It was 15 minutes of PURE GREATNESS!!!  I was not expecting it at all.....I thought that I would get an email first!  I was soooo happy to hear his voice.  I think I fell in love all over again!  Its nice to know that he is doing well.  Hes in a tent (for now) but it has air conditioning (thank gosh because he said its SO hot over there right now) and it has power outlets!  So, I guess that is better then nothing!!  He said that the food is not too bad but it depends on which chow hall he goes to.

Im getting ready to send him his first soon as I get his address!  Im excited!!!  Ive gotten LOTS of ideas from friends on what they have sent their Husbands when they were deployed!  :)  

Hopefully Bill will get the rest of the way settled in soon and on a routine!  I keep telling myseld that time is already going fast so it can only be a sign that we will be together again in no time!!  <3

As time narrows down....

As time narrows down to final good-byes on the phone, its getting harder.  Im SO not ready for it!  I can only HOPE that time goes fast and this is all over in a blink of an eye!  I dont think that I have wanted Christmas to come any sooner!  The last couple of days I have been able to talk to Bill on the phone quite a few times, and we got to webcam a few times!  It melts my heart when Kadynce gets to see him and gets SOOO excited!  All she could do was wave and blow kisses!  I know that she misses her Daddy!  :)  

On a positive note.....Prince Bradyn has made his appearance!!!!!  We were scheduled to induce on the 20th but he decided that when the clock struck midnight on the 17th he wanted to come!  He was born at 10:01am on the 17th!  He was 6 pounds and 14 ounces and measured 20 1/4 inches long!!!  His Daddy even got to see him be born on the webcam!  It was not the same as him being in the room with us but it meant the WORLD to me that he could atleast see it!  We got to webcam for a couple hours after he was born so Daddy could see his lil' prince!  My babies are my world! 

I could not be any happier with my life!  I have the perfect kids and the PERFECT Husband!!!  We will be together again and be the happy family that we should be!  Until then, it is me being Mommy and Daddy!!!  I know that I cannot fill their Daddys shoes but they will atleast know who he is.  They will get to see him (in the pictures and slideshows that I made) and will get to hear his voice (with the books he recorded for them)!  Kadynce LOVES having Daddy time so that is a MUST while he is gone!  We have time set aside just to think about and "see" Daddy! 

It breaks my heart that he cant be here and hold his little boy but knowing what my Husband is doing not only for our family but for our couuntry, makes me SOO proud!  I could not be more proud of my Husband for making the sacrifices that he is!

Bill-You are my world and my soul mate!  PLEASE come back home to us safe!  We love you and need you!  <3  143 BLTS  <3

Sometimes you just HAVE to let go.....

2 days ago I had to do the hardest thing I have EVER done.  I had to take my Husband to the Airport and say good-bye to him.  We had the BEST 2 weeks together.  We spent every minute together.  On the way to the Airport I just knew that I was going to break down in the Airport when he had to walk away from us.  Kadynce didnt quite understand what was going on (thank gosh)!  She just sat in her stroller as we walked in to get Bill checked in for his flight.  Thats when my tears started.  We walked over to the security check point and decided that we would just say our good-byes then instead of waiting until he had to board the plane.  I TOTALLY LOST IT!!!  All I could do was hold him in my arms and I definitely didnt want to let go.  As I stand there bawling my eyes out and have everyone looking at us, Bill says his good-byes to Kadynce.  That made me cry more.  She was so use to her Daddy being around and now he had to walk away from her.  Bill hugged me and kissed me one last time.  I didnt want to let him go......but I knew I had to!!!  So, Kadynce and I stand there and watch him go through security.  Kadynce starts to wave at her Daddy and then starts to cry because she dont understand why hes not turing around and coming back or waving back to her.  We stood there for about 5 more minutes as I just bawled my eyes out.  Once we got to the car in the parking lot, all I could do was sit there and cry.  I just could not tell myself to leave.  I knew that my whole world was sitting in that Airport and was leaving soon.  I felt like my world was ending.  My heart was breaking but I had to pull myself together so Kadynce didnt see my tears.  As I pulled out of the parking lot, all I could do was cry.  I cried for 20 minutes after I left the Airport.  It had to be the HARDEST day in my life.  It was a difficult afternoon and evening.  I had to hide my tears until Kadynce went to bed.  I dont want her to see her Mommy cry.  I dont want her to know how much I hurt because I am not with her Daddy.  She has enough hurt of her own.  She knows who her Daddy is.....and knows now that he is not here with us.  It has been hard for me to hear her call his name.  We look at his pictures every day....many times a day!  Every time I am on the phone with someone she thinks that it is him.  I know that in 9 months we will be together again......but it is going to be a LONG 9 months.  :'(

Yesterday I became 37 weeks.  It has been a rough 3 weeks.  I have had LOTS of contractions that are very regular and I am still dilated to 4 cm.  We were hoping that Bill would be able to see Bradyn be born while he was here on leave but that didnt happen.  So, we are sticking with our plan and going to Skype it.  As of now, if Bradyn is not born before my appointment next week then we are going to schedule an induction for the 20th of April.  So no matter what in 2 weeks my baby boy will be here!  I CANT WAIT!!! 

I love my family SO VERY MUCH and cant wait until we are together again!!!  <3

1 Year Later.....

1 year ago today I brought my Princess in to the world!!  She is the BEST that I could have asked for!  She is my whole world!  I waited FOREVER for her to come.  I went through 21 1/2 hours of labor before she arrived!  Im just glad that I only pushed for 30 minutes! 

Now....a year later, I am about to go through it again!  I am currently 4 cm and 70% effaced.  Im hoping that Bradyn comes SOON because I am MISERABLE!  My contractions are 1-4 minutes apart.  I just need them to get a little stronger so I can dilate more!  Im not too sure how much longer I can handle this pain without some meds but the Nurses and Drs at the Birth Center seem to think that all women in labor are wonder women and can handle all of the pain! to them....Im NOT wonder woman!  I HATE PAIN!!!!

Bill has been back here in Iowa for 5 days so far and it has been AHH-MAZING!!  I love having him with us!  We have gotten A LOT accomplished since he has been here.  Kadynce is turning 1 next week so we are having her party tomorrow!  Im SOO excited!  I cannot believe that she is going to be 1 already!  Time has went SOO fast!!!!!!

We had a Dr appointment Tuesday and found out that I am starting to dilate!  So far I am at 1 1/2 cm!  :)  So, anytime Bradyn is ready, he will be here!  We go back to the Dr next week so hopefully I am more dilated and Bradyn will make his entrance while his Daddy is here.  That would be SOO nice!  ;)

When I was 33 Weeks pregnant with Bradyn, we did the 3D pictures!  He looks JUST like Kadynce did in her 3D pictures that we had done with her.  That means that he will look like his Daddy too!  :)  :)
Other than planning Kadynce's Birthday Party and getting things done for Bradyn, we have been relaxing and spending all of our time together as a family!!!!  I will be SOOOOOO heart-broken when Bill has to leave again but he has to!  :(

I love my Husband and all of my Babies!!!!!!!!

Emotions, Emotions, Emotions!!!

These past 5 days have been AMAZING!  I have been with my Husband and it has never felt so good to be close to him!  We have had such a great time....and I dont want it to end!  All good things come to an end eventually though!  :(  He will be home with me in Iowa in a few weeks so I have something to look forward to.  :)  We have gotten a lot accomplished this week so that has been good.  I am hoping that I dont cry tomorrow when I take him to the Airport....Im sure I will though!  I have a 12 hour drive after that though so I cant wear myself out!  LOL

Bill has gotten to spend a lot of time with Kadynce and also be able to feel and see Bradyn play (maybe with his weiner like I said before!!  HAHA)

I am still not sure how I got SO lucky to have met this man!  He is my everything!  I cannot thank God enough to have brought this AMAZING man in to my life that night!  I am just as in love with him now than I was when we met and got married!  My love for him grows everyday.  It will be SO hard when he has to deploy in less than 2 months but I know that we can make it through it!  Bill.....I love you SO much and cant wait to be with you in a few weeks!  <3  143 BLTS  <3

Its been ROUGH!

The last couple of days have been ROUGH!  I have been SO emotional and feeling overwhelmed with everything!  Kadynce is getting a few teeth in at the same time so she has been cranky and not helping.  LOL 

I have not been feeling too well the last few days and with Kadynce being vranky it only makes me feel worse. 

Sometimes I feel like I could bitch out a few people.....All I ever hear is how everything will be okay and how I should just be happy that I have a Husband that supports me.  Dont get me wrong, I am SO glad that my Husband supports me and our family.  I am glad that he supports all of my choices and decisions as well.  BUT....being away from him is NOT as easy as some people think it is!  Like I have said MANY times before...until you are in MY shoes, you will NEVER know how I feel or what I am going through!!!  Until then, you can tell me your opinions all you want....even though I probably wont listen!  I will feel how I want and when I want!  The only person that knows EXACTLY what I am going through is my Husband....and he doesnt get the full effect but close enough to it!  He has been my rock through all of this and will continue to be. 

I hate how I thought I could depend on a few people but I dont think I can.  I feel pretty alone and by myself a lot of the time.  I guess that is what I get for moving back here.  Again....all I hear is that it would be worse if I were in Japan......then I would be by myself with both kids and nobody to help.  Sometimes, I feel like that is what I have here in Iowa so it would be no different.  Im hoping that after Bradyn is born, time will go fast and my Husband will be back to get us to go back to Japan. 

On a GOOD note....I get to see my Husband in less than a week!  I am SO excited!  I am NOT looking foward to the 11 hour drive but it will be TOTALLY worth it!  I just want to be in his arms.....even though it is for only 4 days!

Bill Denney-Im SO excited to see you and be in your arms!  I cannot wait until I get to see you in LESS than a week!  You are my rock and my EVERYTHING!  Im so glad that you are by my side with all of my choices and you almost always seem to make me in a better mood with your words!  I love you SO much!

SO excited!!

I am SO excited!  I found out that I get to see my Husband in a week and a half!!!!! I cant wait!  It is going to be a LONG drive to Oklahoma but SOOOO worth it!  I just want to be in his arms again!  And I want Kadynce to have time with her Daddy.  I know that she misses him just as much as I do! 

Bradyn has been kicking SO much.....!!!  I love when he makes my heart melt!  Ill love it even more when his Daddy can feel him too! 

I FINALLY got to talk on the phone with Bill today!  I miss hearing his voice.  I always know that he will be here for me no matter what.  Im SO lucky to have him as my Husband!  <3

My King and My Prince!

Today I had an ultrasound to see Bradyn!  He is SOO cute!  I LOVE IT!  He has his Daddys nose....just like Kadynce!  It makes me miss Bill even more and wishing that Bill could be here to be at the Dr appointments with me.  I miss my King!!!  He is my EVERYTHING!  My Mom has been going with me to all of my appointments so that keeps my mind off of Bill not being there.  Im SO glad that I have the support that I do from my Mom and my Grandma!  They mean SO much to me and are definitely helping me get through all of this without my Husband!

Bradyn is almost 3 pounds and looks GREAT!  He is still a BOY!  LOL  The Dr definitely made that clear....!!  :)  Bradyn was all open today and not being shy!  Again.....he must take after his Daddy!  Just kidding!  He has LOTS of hair already too!  I cant wait until he is in my arms.....but I can wait until he gets bigger and gains more weight! 

To Mr Denney-We love you VERY much and cant wait until we get to see you again!  Thank you for giving me my and them are my WHOLE world!  I am SO happy to call you my Husband and for our kids to call you Daddy...(well, Da Da)!!  I love you with all of my heart and MORE and you make me SO happy!  143 BLTS!

3 Years Ago....

I'm hoping to write all of this without crying but I'm sure I wont be able to do it! 

3 years ago tomorrow (January 30th, 2008)  my world was changed!  I married the BEST man in the world!  I married my best friend, my soul-mate, and a man that means everything to me.  I never thought in a million years that I would find someone who filled every hole in my life and MUCH more!  I could not ask for a better Husband!  In the 3 years that we have been married we have lost a baby, we have had a daughter, and now we have a son on the way!  We have had our ups and plenty of downs....but nothing that we haven't been able to overcome.  Right now we are living in separte countries....and as hard as it is, I know that we will make it through this.

To my AMAZING Husband.....I just want you to know that I cant wait until I am in your arms again.  I miss you SO much and I want to thank you for being the BEST Husband that any woman could ask for and for being an AMAZING Daddy to our kids!  You mean the world to us.  Thank you for giving me my babies!!!!  All 3 of them hold a special place in my heart!!  You are my soul mate and my best friend!  I always know that I can count on you no matter what.....even when my emotions are all CRAZY!  ;)   I know that I will be in your arms again.....but that day cant come fast enough!  I miss all of the little things....your silly jokes, your complaints, your hugs, and your kisses!!  I HATE that we have to be apart on our Anniversary.....but I know that you love me and would love to be here with us!  I love you SO much and cant wait to hold you again! 

I love you!  <3

I havent written in here for awhile.  In the last couple of weeks, I have moved from Des Moines to Cedar Rapids and in to an apartment with my Mom.  It is definitely different living with my Mom again, but so far things are going good.  I am missing Bill more and more everyday which sucks but I am getting use to him not here with me.  Im sure that it will get a little easier as time goes by but I HATE being away from him. 

Today we had a tour of the Birthing Center where Bradyn will be born.  My Mom and Grandma went with me.....and we actually learned quite a bit of things.  It is nice to be able to see how things will be different this time around.  Kadynce was born in a Military Hospital so it will be a WAY different experience to have Bradyn in a Civilian Hospital.  Only 13 more weeks and we are hoping he will make his debut!  I CANT WAIT!  Taking the tour today only made me want Bradyn here even more....and Bill!  I wish that Bill could be here for the birth but we are hoping to Skype it (or some of it) so he can see his Son be born!  He is our little Prince and will complete our happy family!!!!  <3

For my Husband..... :)

So....I have come to realize that I am SO in love with my Husband.  Being away from him has made me realize even more that I love him with all of my heart and more!  He is my soul mate and my world!  He is everything to me!  He is the BEST thing that has EVER happened to me in my life!  He is the most amazing man and I could not ask for a better man to be the Daddy of my kids!  I love seeing him with Lauren and Kadynce.  I cannot wait until Bradyn is born.  Bradyn will be just like his Daddy!!!  I just know it!  :)  Bradyn will bring more joy to our lives but we will now be complete.  We have the perfect family.  Ill be so happy when Bill comes home.  I just want to be in his arms and be able to touch him.  I love all of our time together and will be SO happy to have that time come again.  

Bill Denney-You are my world!!  I want you to know that you are the BEST thing in my life and you are my world!  We will never be apart since you are always in my heart!  I always get butterflies when I get to talk to you and see you on Skype!!  Your voice always makes me feel better no matter what mood I am in.  When I see you, you make my heart are my world!  I cant wait until we are together again!  I love you with all of my heart and more!  

P.S.-I LOVE being your lobster!  :)

is SO ready....

This week has been SO stressful.  My Brother Tim has been in the ICU on ventilators and breathing machines.  He has so far made a FULL recovery.  God was DEFINITELY looking down on us and we are all SO thankful that he is still here with us.  He is now out of the ICU and making progress towards his future.  He has a long ways to go but we are all here supporting him.

Ive been missing my Husband a lot today....he is my WORLD and means SO much to me.  I am still not ready for him to be away from me, even though he has been for a few days already.  I would never have been "ready"!  I think that today has been so hard just because it is his Birthday and we are not together.  Im sure that all of the holidays will be hard for me.  I know that I will make it through all of this but it will not be easy.  It helps that Bill has recorded books for the kids with his voice reading.  It helps me as well so I can hear his voice and know how much he loves and misses the kids.  I am sure that we will have PLENTY of recorded books by the time he gets back! 

Bradyn has been moving SOO much!  Im really happy that this pregnancy has been TOTAL opposite as Kadynce's.  My Dr has decided that if things keep going well then we will induce around 38 or 39 weeks.  I guess only time will tell but I think that things will keep going smooth. 

Im SO ready for the deployment to be over and Bradyn to be here!!  I just want my perfect little family back together so we can grow and be happy together and with each other.  I miss my Husband and I know that Kadynce misses her Daddy!  I almost cried when we were on Skype and she got to see her Daddy.....all she wanted to do was touch his face!  It was SO cute! 

To Bill.....I want you to know that we love you VERY much and miss you BUNCHES!  Im SO glad that you are my Husband and that our kids have been SO lucky to have you as their Daddy!  I cant wait until we are all in your arms again!!!  We love you!  <3
