What a wonderful, happy, busy holiday season this has been. We have Benjamin home for the holidays...happy times, but on January 2, him and older brother Chris will leave for Virginia for more training before they head to Iraq. In the meantime we are just enjoying being together as a family.
We have been blessed to attend two Christmas programs and thoroughly enjoyed both of them.
Friday evening Miranda and kids came to enjoy the play at Chris and Heathers church, and I must say that it was the best play I have ever seen. Stephanie, Heathers mom. and best friend,Rhonda, played the meanest old robbers in wild west.
Sunday we attended our church in Ivydale, WV. After a short church service we had food and games. The pastor made everything super simple by ordering soup, bread, and desserts. Then we played "Yankee Swap" and someone (can't remember who because it changed hands so many times) won the coveted Lighthouse Clock, and the teddy bear. Let me tell you those old ladies can get mean when they really want something. Then that evening we attended the cantata at Miranda and Peters church in Culloden, WV. The children put on a nativity scene with music that brought tears to our eyes. Then came the dreaded cantata (as director Miranda was completely stressed), but SURPRISE it was wonderful.
Well, surprise to all who know us, we had our family Christmas early on Tuesday(yesterday) and everyone had such a good time...we didn't spend much money but we were with each other and didn't need much. Liberty made out like a bandit and the boys got 22 gauge guns and a Leggo WII game. Oh, I can't forget that Chris got me drinking glasses for a present (does that mean that they are tired of drinking out of pint canning Jars)?
Miranda, Peter and kids spent the night, and most of us slept. My husband has this wonderful machine on his job that calls us everytime that it has a problem...NOT it called 5 times. (Isn't technology wonderful?) So, I fell asleep at 4 a.m., and got up at seven. Oh, well, after everyone cleared out Geary and I put our jammies back on and hit the bed for a couple of hours.....YEH!!!
Anyway, I will share pics later.

Greetings from Fort Picket, VA

Well sorry I took sooo long to do this, but between being on details, KP duty, and shooting, I really haven't had much time. It's not been too bad down here. When we first got here it was really cold, but it's warmed up and started raining haha. I'm going back home in 4 days. I'm looking forward to being with my family and fiance, but I know that the time will fly by and I'll be right back here again. Well I have some school work to do so I better get to it. Thanks for all the prayers I know alot of people are remembering me in.

Better late than never...

Well, I know that we are attending the right church when they are as late about things as I am..yesterday (the weekend after Thanksgiving) we held a Veterans Day service. Actually, the Pastor was waiting to be able to include all of my family which I truly appreciate. If you haven't been Lello'sland before then you need to know that this blog was created to keep our family in touch while my two sons are deployed. The baby of the family (Ben) left this morning (Dec.1) to join the other soldiers in his troop, and next month his older brother (Chris) will also join him as they train in the US for a couple of months, then on to Iraq. God has really been merciful in the fact that they have been home this long.

Our whole family has been here over the holidays and we had a wonderful time. We had people stacked everywhere, and ate and ate and ate. It was very quiet after everyone left, and even quieter this morning after Benjamin left. All that left is the Christmas tree that finally got deocated yesterday, leftovers (not many) and the wonderful memories and pics. Oh, let's not forget the pee spots that happened when my dog Josie got excited that everyone was here.

Saturday I will be at a craft sale in the neighborhood and am excited about that. I have come up with some wonderful ideas, and ,hey, if they don't sell then I will have a wonderfully decorated house. I will try to post some pics later of the family and the crafts. Check in later for the really good pics of my beautiful family.
