The Day Has Finally Come!

Well, graduation day came and went in a rush. We had been looking forward to this day since January, and it was wonderful. Justin graduated with honors in the top 10% of his class of 39 (which began as a class of 68). I was so proud of him! We enjoyed the moment long enough to catch our breath and get ready for the next 6 months. Now, on to the next phase of training...and this begins with arctic training in Alaska next month. I guess I will never be able to fully relax until we are out of the Air Force, but at least now Justin has the job he wanted and the green beret. He definitely earned it....I mean "we" earned it! Thank you for all the prayers and support...I know that we will continue to need them! We are coming home on the 17th, and are so excited to visit with all our loved ones. See you soon!

CAUTION: This is funny...

This may be offensive to some of you, but I think this is so funny. It is a will Ferrell skit, and I laughed so hard. So, I am warning you now....if you don't appreciate his humor...don't watch this, but the rest of you...get ready to laugh!

And, just so you know...Pearl has retired from acting...she is enjoying her baby retirement!

Things I forgot...

Things I forgot...

#1. It is my little brother's 22nd birthday today! I love you Miles!

#2. There was a quail convention out my front door today....these birds are always hanging out in our neighborhood, and today they were out looking for a snack!

Happy December

So, I feel like it is now time to start with this whole blogging thing. I love reading other peoples, and so why wouldn't people like to read mine? Right? We just have a lot going on right now, and this seems like a sensible way to keep everyone updated and in touch.

For starters, Justin will finally be graduating from his specialist training on Friday! I couldn't be more excited, and for those of you who know just what he has been up to, I am sure you understand. I know I will have a lot to post after graduation day.

It is snowing A LOT up in here in Washington, and this California girl is having difficulty adjusting. I had to dig my car out and shovel the driveway this week for the first time EVER! Although it is a surprisingly great workout, it takes a lot of time and effort. It is hard enough getting out the door with Paige, and now this! I am trying to embrace it and learn to love is temporary after all! Here's our little snow-dusted dwelling!

With all this cold weather, maybe I will be able to hunker down and start my business once and for all. My girlfriend Jamie and I are going to start a baby clothing and accessory line, and so far, we just have a domain name

The company is pd bum bum.....named after our "p d's"....Paige Donovan (mine), and Presley Dayne (hers). Our kids are our inspiration, and I am constantly making things for friends, so we figured we should try and make a business out of it. I will keep you posted on all of this...and I will expect some customers :) Just kidding!
