Trav's last photos from Iraq

Travis Spent his last few days site seeing at the palaces in Baghdad.  These are the last photos he sent home.


Well, here we are at the center of the storm of events.  We are getting ready for the sale of our home, if everything goes well we will be closing on the 24th of this month.  We have a few fixes that are needing to be done that were specified under the contract.  So we are getting all of those accomplished over the next two days.  Brooklyn has had a fever the last few days but we woke this morning to find it had finally gone away.  She no longer gets her pacifier so it was a very long couple of days, but we survived without giving in.  And now for the big news. . . the news that we have been waiting to hear all year!  TRAVIS IS COMING HOME!!!  I can't post the exact date and time because of security reasons but its very soon!!  And in just a few days I will finally be back in his arms!  We love you all and I will be sure to post pictures and hopefully video of the exciting event soon so that you can join in our celebration!  Daddy is coming home!!  So Excited!! 

Trunk or Treat 1 Nov 2008

Ok so here are a few photos of our fun filled evening last night. . . before the ER visit that is.  Of Course we had Katie as Tinker Bell, Brook as a Lady bug, and I went as Jill Stevens AKA Miss Utah.  We had a lot of fun.  With Our friends Sally, Dan and their sons (Nathan and his girlfriend are the pirates).   Also Ian and Ashley Smith or Peter Pan and a cat if you go by costumes.  Lauren their daughter is the other Tinkerbell in the photos.  Thank you Ian for the use of the uniform!!  Trav has all his in Iraq or storage right now.   My friend Melissa went as her hubby she's the one in the BDU's.  Sidney (Sally's niece's daughter) is the sweet little monkey you see in some of the photos dressed as a pirate monkey.  Enjoy!!

Brooklyn turns one!

Even though we rushed the icing on a still warm cake and Brooklyn was not feeling well.  Her  Birthday was celebrated.  Not very well mind you, but I'm sure Daddy will make up for it when he gets home in a few days.  We did spend it with our Sally and Dan which always makes for a very nice time.

FRG Fun and Games

I have been a busy women the past few days with FRG stuff.  We hung stars, made welcome home signs and there is oh so much left to do to make everything pretty for when the guys come home.  Its been fun but very tiring.  The girls had a dentist appointment today and Katie was so brave she sat in the chair and got her floride and didn't shed a tear.  The dentist appointment also gave us a break from the FRG which was a good way to break up the week.  The pictures below are pictures of the 89 or so stars we hung with the soldiers names on them for Bravo company, part of the welcome home decorations and Travis Welcome home Sign Katie and I made for him.  I needed to post that one so Travis would know what to look for.  So enjoy.  Love you all.  I'll keep you all updated on the next few weeks!
