Birthday Wishes

Although the day is coming to an end, we have not gone without thinking of our sweet niece today on her birthday! Luckily, we were able to chat with her on the phone today and let her know that we hoped her day was extra special.
Happy Birthday Claire-bear!
We love you, miss you and will see you soon!!
Lots of Love from Uncle Adam, Aunt Em and Aiden!

Late, but not forgotten

Please forgive me as I’m a day late in honoring Veteran’s Day, but it was not forgotten. The afternoon was spent with my husband, a veteran, and 5 others at our house for a Veteran’s Day, pre-Thanksgiving, please come help us eat our food up before we PCS dinner! It was nice to have some of the people who have filled our home with joy while we’ve lived here come one last time...and of course aid in not having to throw away food!
And I can’t go without beaming with pride on a day like Veteran’s Day, so yesterday I found a few pictures of the hubs in uniform. He’s almost half way to retirement, he’s re-enlisted a number of times, he’s been deployed twice, he’s about to be stationed overseas for the second time, and he’s working hard to become an officer. We are so grateful for the sacrifices he has made and continues to make for us to live this life. We also remember those who have served,  are now serving with him, and those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice for our country. God Bless them all!

And I'll leave you with this video of a song that kept playing in my head yesterday...
...And don't worry...I've not forgotten about posting pictures of halloween festivities...

Oh, Rosie

Today, our little Rosie is recovering from the emergency surgery she endured yesterday. Oh, Rosie we sure miss you around here. We hope you’re getting some rest with the blanket we dropped off for you last night. Lilly has looked all over the house for you and Aiden has been talking about seeing you resting last night. Get better soon so you can come back home for awhile. We love you Rosie-Roo.
Our little “speed-bump”
After returning home from visiting Rosie at the vet last night:
Aiden: “Ro-iese, Ro-iese” Hollering in the yard and around the house for his dog.
Me: “Honey, she’s not here. She’s resting with the doctor, remember?”
Aiden: “Roiese, Blank. toes.”
Me: “Yes, we took the blanket to Rosie and covered her toes didn’t we.”
Aiden: Nods. “Roiese, rest.”
I love that little guy. And I love that he loves his dogs so very much!
