Christmas 2011

Jordan was very excited about his gift this year!

And sooo was Emily

Daisy is always excited!!!

And Kayla was just happy to be home and FAR, FAR away from Japan!!


This was a very special Christmas this year. I hadn't seen Kayla since Febuary and I was soooo excited to have all my kids back together. Jack was very busy being the coordinator for Toys for Tots this year. He didn't get to spend very much time with us because they work 6 days a week in December. We did go and help out a little bit just to spend some time with him.

Marine Corps Ball 2011

My sweetest friend Gerri and I.

The Spokane wives. Karen, Laura and I.

I don't LOVE going to the Marine Corps Ball!! It's only for very selfish reasons though. I love celebrating the birthday of the Marine Corps and I love that Jack and I can get away from the kids and stay in a hotel by ourselves. I also love being with friends and having fun. Getting ready for the ball is a lot of work for us woman. We have to shop for a dress and try to look our best. It takes a lot of preperation for an older woman like me!!!I am getting used to it though. haha

It's about time I update my blog if I do say so myself!

I could start out by going on and on about how crazy life has been this pasy year but it hasn't, so I would be lying. I can't believe it has been a year already!!! I have a lot of catching up to do And I will start tonight.
