3 Years

Today I have been married to my sweet husband for 3 years :)

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
Jeremiah 29:11

Things don't always make sense and we might wonder where we're going (sometimes literally), but no matter what or where, I'm blessed to be living this life with you babe. I love you so much and I can't wait to see whats ahead!

Pictures, coupons, pushing and the Army!

Isaac playing in my suitcase that I have yet to put away :)

Isaac's new big boy bed! He's been sleeping on just the mattress for a couple months.

Isaac taking Landon on a ride! Daddy set this up! I love how Landyboo is just sitting back and relaxing.

I am doing my best to start couponing. There is a lady here at Ft. Bragg that does a class on how to get organized and how to match coupons to store deals and all that stuff. I plan on taking it when it falls on a weekend and I can leave my munchkins with my hubby. Who doesn't want to save money on their grocery bill? Weirdos.
Isaac will NOT stop pushing his brother over. If I leave them in the same room for 30 seconds I hear Landon screaming and come in to find buddy standing over his usually holding a toy Landon had also. We've tried it ALL to get Isaac to understand that his behavior is wrong. I've also noticed that he is more jealous than he was when Landon was a newborn-6months. I'm not exactly sure why. Maybe because buddy is getting older and understands better than he has to share his mommy with this other guy? Who knows. We've been trying to give buddy extra love and do special things with just him. We'll keep praying that things start clicking. Besides that of course they're great. Landon is into EVERYTHING and so I'm always finding something else to babyproof. One great thing (out of 2348273947293798273) about my sweet babies is that they both love the stroller. We could go on a 3 hour walk and they wouldn't mind a bit. That helps me a lot.
Mr and I talk a lot about the Army. What we like and don't like and whether we'll be in it much longer. We honestly don't know yet. Mr hasn't even started his true job yet so he doesn't know if he likes it or not. We know we don't like being away from family. That is certain. But honestly I cannot say I hate this life. I don't mind making new friends as long as they're true friends. I don't mind moving and seeing different parts of the world. I think it would be fun for our kids to travel all over. They health care in my opinion has been really great for us. But I'm not the one doing Mr's job and I'm not the one who will be deployed away from my children. I guess whats bothering me is that the decision doesn't have to be made for a few years and the waiting to know what the future holds kinda bugs me. But that is where faith comes in. Knowing that no matter what God is going to be there through it all and it will all work out.

Finally Settled In

I wish the reason I took an almost 3 month break from my blog was because of moving but it was truly because of .... what is that word? Lazy? No it must have been busy. Whichever it was I'm back now :)
We truly are settled into our house and have been for a while. We love it! We have close neighbors but out the back of the house its all woods and we can just open the blinds and feel like we're out in the country.
Mr is getting into the swing at work. His unit is returning soon and he'll be moving onto his real job as a platoon leader.
The boys are doing good too. Landon baby is crawling and jibber jabbering and pulling up. He is amazing to watch. And I think Mr and I have both realized through watching Landon do all of these milestones, that we probably want more children. SOMEDAY! And sweet Isaac is just that. Sweet :) He is polite and loving and he makes my heart melt at least 5 times a day. I can't get enough of them!
I haven't met very many people here. I'm going to a PWOC bible study starting the 12th of July so hopefully that will help. We tried one church a few weeks ago and it didn't fit. We have another lined up for next Sunday. Its called Snyder baptist. We shall see :)
It is so hot here. I step outside and am immediately drenched in sweat (sorry if that's TMI)! Luckily we have graduated from the old swamp cooler and now have central heat and air which is amazing. Oh and ceiling fans help a lot.
Yesterday I cut some really pretty roses from the backyard. I love having free fresh flowers in the house. I miss our AZ friends. I miss hosting gatherings and having people to talk to and living mere feet from great people. If you guys are reading this, I miss you ALL!
That about wraps up whats new here. If you made it to the end of this long ramble I'm impressed :)
