WW - Paintball Warriors

Saturday the kids decided they wanted to go paint balling so being the cool parents we are we loaded up the kids and drove to our posts sportsman center, rented the supplies we needed and headed off to the field for an afternoon of fun.

My Brave Warriors

A Real Father Daughter Moment

Sending Them Off

Of course there were some casualties.

He had his helmet on but somehow he still got shot on the skin

His only injury of the day

Just too funny not to post

Thankfully her mask took the shot!

Fun was had by all who played although I fear Santa will be asked for lots of paint ball supplies this year.

I Dont Think Tiger Has Anything To Worry About From This House.

Last night we took the kids mini golfing and other than a snot nose teenager who really ticked me off we had a great time. Its been years since the last time we've gone mini golfing in fact the last time we went Megan wasnt old enough to play so this was her first time golfing. I dont know much about golf but I'm going to go out on a limb and say Tiger has nothing to worry about from this household.

Harry Potter VS Voldermort Rap

I love the Harry Potter series and will be seeing the latest Harry Potter movie later tonight if things go as planned. I was once again fueling my youtube addiction when I came across this rap off between Harry Potter and Voldermort and decided I should share with everyone. Enjoy!

WW - He's Home!!

Ok so thing have finally calmed down enough for me to post about homecoming.

So we found out MFS (my favorite soldier) was coming in on Monday and our welcome home ceremony was to take place between 2300 and 000 (for those who aren't familiar with military time that's 1100 & Midnight) I told the kids that daddy was coming home and they were excited but still pretty skeptical cause we had already been told a couple other dates and they had been pushed back for one reason or another. Monday morning rolled around the kids and I got out of bed and headed on post to help put up welcome signs.

After we got our signs up we took the kids to McDonald's for lunch and to kill some time ... I realized later that we took the kids there after the daddies left to distract ourselves that we were going home to an empty house. Eventually we had to leave so we each went our separate ways to get our personal errands done. I came home hung up our welcome home signs in the yard and on our windows did a little bit of cleaning then we headed to Michelle's for dinner. While we were eating dinner we got a call saying our guys had landed in St Louis they were only 3 hours away from us we could hardly contain ourselves. We all lost our appetites the excitement was too much, so we headed up stairs and started getting ready. We got to the gym way too early of course but we weren't the first ones there the place was already crowded with excited families waiting for their soldier to return.

Finally the buses arrived at the gym and one by one they filed in the gym to thunderous clapping and screams of excitement, after the Colonel said a few words on their bravery and sacrifice they were released to us. He finally made his way thru the crowds to us and we welcomed our soldier home with hugs and kisses and hand shakes.

We have been enjoying family time its so nice to have him home again!
Thanks again to all of you for your support and prayers for MFS and his buddies and thank you for counting down the days with me during this deployment.
