Paul’s last day in DC

On Paul’s last day working in DC we all went with him so we could be a part of his going away ceremony. He was awarded a medal for his time in DC and given a book as a reminder of his time there. We all went to the O’club for lunch to celebrate with…

Thanksgiving

We spent Thanksgiving volunteering at Jamestown. I made the clothes for everyone, and had a really good time. The food was awesome, our friends were fantastic, and the crowds were huge. Emmie loved carrying the water buckets around Isaac in front of the Governor’s house. Paul, Isaac, and Emmie. Me in the Governor’s house, my…

The James River

This summer we bought a canoe so we can enjoy the great outdoors more; we live less then 4 miles from the James River so it seems a shame not to play on it! Anyway, here are some pictures we took this summer while we were out. The water is so warm it’s like being…

Some catch up stuff

Okay, I am determined to backtrack and share some of this year, Paul’s deployment really kicked my butt as far as being online was concerned, and I let a lot of really great things that happened to us slip by without comment because we missed Paul so much, and spent every minute we were online…

Back from Italy!

Well, we just got back from Italy, and the trip was really long! 11 days away from home is just a little too much for a homebody like me. Florence was beautiful, but since I was busy with my conference Paul got to spend the most time with the kids. He tried to go to…

Halloween

Well, today was Halloween. While the kids were at school I finished making a doll apron for Emmie’s friend’s birthday party tomorrow. (I made the dress a few days ago) The kids only had a half day today, so they got home before 1:00 p.m. We carved pumpkins, put them on the doorstep, and the…

Well, I have decided to start a family blog here for the purpose of keeping friends and family up to date on our day to day lives. Hopefully we can give little glimpses into what we do and how the kids are growing. Anyway I should introduce us all, Paul and I have been Married…
