4 months later

I don't even know where to start.
How in the world did I let 4 months go by without updating this blog. Poor, poor blog.
I'm not going to sit here and recall every single thing that has happened in the last 4 months, but we had Thanksgiving with family in Tennessee, as well as Christmas. We came back to North Carolina and bought a puppy. We also switched homes and are so much happier in our new one.
 
A lot of things are happening in the upcoming months that are exciting and scary. I have family coming to visit soon and a trip planned to Tennessee, but that all leads up to Adam's deployment. I have decided to stay in North Carolina instead of going home like I had originally planned. I am probably going to talk to my mom way too much and visit my friend Krys way too often, but it will be ok. We will make it!

Home in Tennessee!

We are in Tennessee! I feel like I haven't been here in such a long time, and really I haven't. The last time I was home was in May, and that was only for 3 short days. The last time I was home for a long period of time was a year ago. A YEAR AGO! I haven't seen my best friend in a year! Isn't that crazy? Time goes by entirely too fast!

Yesterday we set out around 11 to meet Mom and Freddy halfway in Shelby, NC. We had lunch and said our goodbyes to daddy. We will see him again in a month. I think this is the hardest time Hadley has had saying goodbye and it just breaks our hearts. We can't even imagine what it will be like when he deploys next year. Just painful. 

We got home around 8 and Nana immediately showed her the toys she bought her for our stay of almost 2 months. This girl is spoiled, let me tell you! I was lucky to get her in bed barely before 10. Kid did not want to go to sleep because she was having so much fun!
I am looking forward to all the fun we are going to have coming up. I am so thankful to be home for the holidays and Adam will get to join us in December for Christmas and New Years. I really needed this break from Fayetteville to refresh my mind. I sure am going to miss Krys and my babies though! 
See you in June North Carolina!

Halloween 2013

Halloween was such a success this year! Hadley had a great time and did so well. I was so proud of her. She was very polite and told every single person Happy Halloween. I can't even count how many times I heard her say that night. What made our Halloween even better was that my parents were here! We really had a good time.

Christmas jammies!

Thanks to my friend Courtney over at A+life I am now thinking about this years Christmas jammies. Every year I have picked out Christmas jammies that she opens on Christmas Eve night.

2010
2011
2012
We buy A LOT of Hadley's clothes, if not all, from Old Navy and I love how their pjs fit, so I am pretty sure her's will come from there again this year. Here are some cute ones to choose from.

I'm pretty in love with those fox ones..

The news!

The news I have been waiting for many months finally came this past weekend. 

WE ARE STAYING HERE IN NC!!

Yes, the caps were necessary. I am so excited about our future, but also scared because with Adam's new job comes deployments. We have been lucky in our almost 4 years of marriage that we haven't experienced a deployment yet. But, the inevitable is coming and coming soon. Adam will have to deploy either Feb or June. Let's hope for June, because Feb is just too soon! 

A lot of good things are coming though. Like a new house, a new car, and possibly and new job for me and preschool for Hadley. This new year will definitely bring new things and it's an exciting and scary adventure. 

But, all in all I am so proud that after almost a year in school Adam graduated this past Friday and is now a Civil Affairs Operator. He has worked his ass off for this!

Hubb's Corn Maze

Yesterday we made the journey to Clinton, NC to Hubb's Corn Maze. Kris and I have been searching for a corn maze/pumpkin patch and this is the one we found that we thought would be the best for the kids. It turned out to be pretty small and not a pumpkin patch at all, or a petting zoo, but the kids still had a blast and that was all that mattered. 

Sweet Olivia!
It was a really challenge to get my child to smile. Ugh.
This one would have been so good if Hadley wasn't cheesing like that. Ha!
The slide was a big hit!
I absolutely love these babies!
They didn't love this as much as I thought they would.
Where we got uber dirty
I have to say this was the best part. The kids rode it over and over. 


Hayride to see a whole 3 animals, and they didn't even stop. Blah.
Pumpkin ice cream, y'all!
And a throwback picture of Hadley's first pumpkin patch!
